CHECKING SKILLS PROGRAM

Overview

The Checking Skills Clinic consists of four sections – The Team Environment, The Training Environment, The Game Day Environment & Growing The Game. Clinic presentations, group work, delegate discussions and individual reflection is supplemented with in class demonstrations and on-ice applications. It is not the intent of this clinic to train coaches to be experts, but rather to identify the key fundamental of checking and being checked. The degree of success that coaches experience depends on how readily the core values are accepted, and our ability to take this learning from the clinic to our communities and grow the game.

Who Should Attend?

The Hockey Alberta Checking Skills clinic is a required course for all registered Head Coaches that are coaching in Atom or above. The content of this course focuses on much more than simply “Body Checking” and is therefore recommended for Atom coaches as well.
