Kid Stuff: Why Every Player Needs a Checking Clinic
- Safety: Learn to avoid and receive checks so you don’t get hurt. Experts estimate that approximately 80 percent of hockey injuries are related to body checking.
- Balance: Find out how to stay on your feet whether you’re on the giving or receiving end, and get or keep control of the puck while you’re at it.
- Stay in the Game: Keep yourself out of the penalty box and don’t hurt anyone!
At checking clinics, players are generally separated by age and size, and the instructors may use checking pads. So even if checking is new to you, the camps remain fun.
