    Defense & Checking Clinic:
    Checking can be defined as using physical force and/or body positioning (without breaking the rules) to either gain possession of the puck or to disrupt the opposition’s play.  There is a great deal of danger in throwing a check. It is not that you can get hurt (although that is always possible) but rather that you can get burned by putting yourself out of position.

    We will teach the proper technique of body checking and playing defensive hockey, including body positioning, receiving a check, shoulder check, covering, gap control, angling, steering, etc. Note: ALL SESSIONS ARE AT PLYMOUTH ICE CENTER. Wayzata High School Boys Head Coach Pat O’Leary and his coaching staff teach all sessions.
