NewEdge Hockey is hosting another Body Contact & Checking Seminar and On-Ice Clinic on Friday 12/26 at Lakeshore Hockey Arena.

The Seminar and Clinic are primarily designed for players with the birth year 2003, 2002, and 2001. NewEdge Hockey has strict capacity rules to ensure an effective instructor to player ratio. Making sure players get the appropriate amount of attention and instruction is our main goal.
You can’t play this game scared. It’s imperative that players learn how to give and receive a check. Providing quality information and on-ice instruction for body contact and checking can make the game of hockey safer and more fun for all participants. While new rules have changed the ages where body checking is allowed and reduced the frequency of inappropriate or aggressive hits, players that are comfortable and confident in physical situations will always have a more enjoyable experience playing hockey. They are also more likely to stay in hockey longer, perform at a high level and less likely to suffer injuries.
Checking is a skill and it comes with a code of ethics and conduct. Just like skating, passing or any other skill, you can obtain checking skills and improve them by emphasizing proper technique, repetition and practicing with a purpose based on accurate and detailed information. We will focus on concepts such as;
Technique (Giving & Receiving a check)
Multiple Checking Styles
Boxing Out and much more!
