Checking & Body Contact Clinic

Does your child have plans on playing Bantam Rep hockey next year, please read:

I highly recommend participating in this clinic, we had a number of our players attend the clinic in previous years and it really benefited them in understanding the importance and safety of Body Contact.

"Checking is a critical skill in the game of hockey that when performed properly can create quality scoring opportunities or help a team regain control of the puck. Just like skating, puck control, passing and shooting there are key progressions to the skill of checking when taught effectively, can greatly enhance a player's enjoyment of the great game of hockey."
