BODY CHECKING CLINIC- OPEN TO U15 PLAYERS
Attention Bantam aged players, are you ready for your first year of body checking in hockey. With no body contact allowed last season all Bantam aged players will be experiencing it for the first time.Checking is critical in the game of hockey and when understood, taught and performed properly and with confidence can greatly increase the chances to possess the puck. As we all know the more we can have the puck on our sticks the more opportunities we have to create quality scoring chances and minimize the amount of scoring chances against.
Just like skating, passing, shooting and puck control checking is a learned skill and has to be worked on in a consistent manner. The more familiar a player is with giving and receiving a check as well as executing the many different types of stick checks and angling techniques the more confident and well rounded a player will be.
These clinics will be open to (U15)players who are entering the contact phase of their minor hockey for the first time. We are happy to have Brad Tiley as our clinic instructor. Brad spent 15 years playing in the AHL and was the recipient of the Eddie Shore Award as the top defenceman in the AHL in 1999. He spent time as an assistant with the Owen Sound Attack and has ran several successful hockey camps in the Owen Sound area.
