Champions checking CLINIC


Making the change from non contact to contact is a big step in the development of a young player. The focus of the Champions Checking Camp is to give every player the proper skills and confidence to ease the transition into u15 in order to play to the best of their abilities in tight, physical situations while also reducing the likelihood of injury. Our program will focus on many different components of checking – angling and positioning, timing, body checking, receiving a body check, contact balance, and confidence.


This program is structured to give players greater confidence and strength competing and battling for the puck over 3 sessions:


Session #1   

During this first session players will learn all the basic skills of checking: proper checking technique, body and stick positioning, how give/take a hit, how to take a hit along the wall, heads-up and awareness of where the danger zones are on the ice. 


Session #2  & #3 

Building off the skills learned in session #1, players will learn how to properly separate the man from the puck and how to utilize their bodies to win 1 on 1 battles.  Players will be introduced to angling techniques as well as learn to drive the net with puck protection to create more scoring chances for themselves. Players will be put through a number of game like situations to incorporate techniques learned. These drills will help players transition from a practice to game scenarios and start getting them to think and get comfortable using the skills learned in the first session.
