How the inventor came up with the idea

Many people enjoy sports, weather watching them or participating in them. For participants, there is only one way to become better in your sports, that is a great deal of practice. Tennis players, for example, have automated machines that serve the tennis ball to the player, which increases acumen. One sport that does not have such a practice aid is hockey. Hockey players are in need of something that can pass a puck at various speeds, angles and times. Inventor John Karellas has filled this need with The Hockey Training Tool.
