Checking Camp

August 3-6       OR      August 30-September 2

The focus of the Checking Camp is to give every player confidence before starting their U-15 season (2008 YOB players) in regards to physical body checking.  By providing the skills and understanding of the progression of steps in body checking, players will gain confidence to use their body to separate the opposing player from the puck.
Players will be taught the 3 A’s:  Awareness, Action and Attitude

Instruction will include:
skating and edges
angling, positioning and timing
stick positioning
receiving and giving a body check
contact along the boards
contact confidence
weight transfer techniques

NOTE:  2007 YOB players are welcomed to register

2 sessions daily, 10 hours on-ice instruction, two groups will be made based on players’ playing level in 2020-2021 season.  Regrouping of players outside of this parameter (ie: size, skill, ability) will be completed by JHD Director.
