Thanks for visiting. My name is Jeff Waffensmith, I am the inventor and founder of Hockey-Dot. As a former goon for the Golden Valley Hockey Association I never spent the time required developing my puck skills, so instead of a lucrative NHL career, I went to school to become a product designer.
Fast forward 20 years, add a wife and 4 kids…While running drills for the youth association I would dream up different tools that could use while coaching. The image shown is an early prototype that would eventually evolve into the Underpass-X training Cone.
With years of helping other companies bring their products to market, I decided to combine my skills and experience to develop the products in a space that I was passionate about.
Hockey-Dot is a family business, everybody helps anyway they can, from testing products, assembling orders to the occasional modeling job.
We are located in Minneapolis Minnesota. All of our manufacturing is done locally.
I stand behind everything we make 100%. If you have an issue I WILL make it right. Contact me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or issues.
This was used to roll the product out in November 2019. I built this video with the help of the kids from the MVI Youth Hockey Association. Go Mavs! A special Thanks to Primus!!!
My first video showing the product in use.

Such a perfect demo of the basic functionality of the Underpass-X Training Cones. All you need is 2 cones, a spare stick, and the desire to get better.
