Learn to check properly instead of just knocking your opponent to the ice. The true purpose of checking is to separate the player from the puck or eliminate open players from the offence without being called for interference. We also want to teach each player how to establish the proper body position in relation to the opponent by taking proper angles prior to contact. It is also important for the Player to learn how to receive a Check properly. There are several injuries that can be avoided by simply learning how to give and receive body contact properly!This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires.
