This comprehensive hockey clinic is designed to introduce body contact and checking/hitting to players both safely and effectively. The curriculum begins with an emphasis placed upon establishing balance, core control, and body position; through purposeful repetition and under the supervision of our coaching team, players are introduced to the movement mechanics and techniques of giving and receiving body contact.
Participants will learn how to properly protect the puck when receiving contact, as well as learn how to separate their opponent from the puck in a safe and efficient manner. Players entering into bantam hockey will gain confidence in their contact skills in order to compete at a faster and more physical pace of the game.
Participants will also take part in a variety of drills and close-quarter scrimmages in order to apply their newly acquired skills in a safe and controlled environment.
