Circus Shot Club

CircusBearMods

The Circus Shot is a high level acheivement in Competitive Edge training.  It involves skating on the Crossover Flywheel, puckhandling, shooting a puck into a strategically placed fishing net, and an optional, but always utilized celebration of the made Circus Shot.  This is why it is said by those in the club, “I dangled, sniped, and celly’d the Circus Shot!”

It is a long road to even get to attempt the Circus Shot.  First you have to learn to do smooth efficient crossovers on the Crossover Flywheel.  Then you need to learn to manage puck-control while executing a good crossover stride and with the eyes up.  Once you can do that you get the chance to shoot, but it is a hard shot to make and even at this point takes most players a handful of attempts.  This page is to celebrate the achievement of those players who have come far enough and have indeed, Dangled, Sniped, and Celly’d the Circus Shot at Competitive Edge!

The following video shows a couple of successful Circus Shots that we have caught on video.  One of them “Bobby Orr Style” meaning the skater fell just after the shot was taken, just like Bobby Orr in the Stanley Cup in 1970.  The stakes were higher for Mr. Orr, but I say the Circus Shot is tougher than the one “Number 4” put away for the Stanley Cup Championship those few years ago.
