When players move from non-hitting to hitting hockey the game changes in many ways. Checking can either make a player more effective or less effective. Checking is a skill and players who understand how to use their bodies and protect the puck will be more effective players then players who do not.
The purpose of this camp is to teach players how to use checking to make themselves better players– correct checking technique, how to give and take a hit, learn how to properly protect the puck and use their body to create scoring chances or separate the opposition from the puck.
Players will be split into small groups to ensure they are getting lots of 1 on 1 attention and repetitions in all drills. Groups will be made based on player’s age and level of play to ensure players will be competing against someone of their own caliber.
Cost is $90 for 3 Day Program (4 ½ total hours On-Ice)

Players will learn all the basics of checking: proper checking technique, how give/take a hit, how to take a hit along the wall, understanding what the danger zone on the rink is, and body positioning skills.
Using skills learned in session #1, players will learn how to properly separate the man from the puck and how to use their body to protect the puck from an opposing player. Players will be introduced to angling techniques as well as learn to drive the net using their bodies/strength/speed to create more scoring chances for themselves.
Players will be put into game situations and small area games to help them integrate the skills learned in sessions #1 and #2. These games will help players transition from a practice to game scenario and start getting them to think and use the skills learned in the first 2 days in game like scenarios.
