To provide professional instruction on the skills and techniques of giving and receiving checks. We will focus on developing player confidence as it relates to their transition into checking. The on-ice instruction is designed to provide a safe environment where each player will be taught angling, positioning, checking techniques of how to give/and receive a check, and situational awareness. The off-ice instruction and video sessions will support the on-ice criteria.

  • Develop proper foundational Skating techniques

  • Giving and receiving checks

  • Danger Zone: injury prevention

  • Body Checking Principles: angling, body positioning, stick skills and purpose

2006→2010 BIRTHYEARS Welcome

August 15th, @ Cary Icehouse - Off-ice 6:45pm On-Ice 7:30pm-8:30pm

Purpose:

Players will learn to attack and challenge the defensive player by using their strong skating techniques to gain good ice. New body contact concepts will help to gain puck possession in both the offensive and defensive zones. This will create more offensive opportunities by keeping plays alive and wearing down the defensive player. Strong board work will help players exit the defensive zone quickly. The new generation of hockey is focused on puck protection and possession.  Fundamental core skating and some new techniques to create time and space will be taught. Small area one on one competitions and games will be used to master the skills.  

Checking Principles:

  • First to touch

  • Jab Step, 10-2, single foot push

  • Line of defense

  • Getting off the wall

  • Win the lane

  • High board contact
