2020 Checking Clinic

The new and improved Checking Clinic from the Velocity Hockey Center is one of the most important clinics we run to teach the fundamentals of checking as kids move up into Bantam and High-School hockey. Checking is a huge part of the game and the goal of the clinic is first to teach player safety and proper technique. A HEADS-UP mentality will be the focus all the way through camp. 

This Clinic will be run by Coach Ryan Theros. Ryan has a great coaching background and is now coaching junior hockey in the NA3HL. By coaching kids of all ages, including high school and juniors he has a true understanding of how the physicality of the game changes over time and what it takes to add checking effectively to your game from both a safety and technical point of view! 

Checking Clinic Keys: 

  • Heads up mentality
  • Player protection 
  • Proper technique of giving and receiving hits 
  • Wall Work
  • Open ice hitting
