2018 Checking Clinic
Submitted By Erin Tsilibanis on Thursday, March 08, 2018
All players born in 2005 who wish to try out for the Bantam Rep teams are invited to attend a checking clinic on March 18th 2018.   Players may sign up for one of two sessions:

SESSION 1 – 6:30pm-7:30pm (FULL)
SESSION 2 – 7:30pm-8:30pm

Players who have attended a checking clinic previously are welcome to attend as a refresher.

There is no charge for this clinic however players must sign-up

The focus of the clinic is to give every player the proper tools and confidence when receiving and giving a body check completely and confidently.  Each step builds upon the previous step in progression; teaching how to protect and pursue the puck in game situations, and becoming familiar and confident with it going into the season.



  • Intro to body contact

  • Positioning/Angling

  • Stick checks/Body positioning

  • Timing/Weight transfer

  • Balance



Please note that the checking clinic is mandatory for all players trying out for Bantam or Midget who have not previously attended a checking clinic.  


A second clinic will be held in April for those unable to attend on March 18th.
