Learn Body Checking & Body Contact
the Safe and Effective Way
Body Checking/Body Contact
1. Positioning and Angling – (Pee Wee and Bantam) This is the first step in teaching checking. Learn how to control skating and to establish position to approach the opponent from an angle that minimizes time and space for the opponent.
2. Stick Checking – (Pee Wee and Bantam) Effectively use the stick for poke checking, sweep checking, lifting or locking the opponent’s stick.
3. Body Contact – (Pee Wee and Bantam) Use the body to block the opponent’s way or take away his skating lanes. The correct stance and effective use of leg strength are important parts of these techniques.
4. Body Checking – (Bantam only) This includes teaching techniques to give and receive a body check safely and within the rules. Video
