 Devloping checking skills with body contact

Key Elements

 Angling, Protecting the puck, Proper use of sticks and body, Compete, Balance and agility


 Designate an area of the ice from one blueline to center line, boards to faceoff dots. A puck is flipped in and the players try to maintain control while the player without the puck uses stick checks, angling and possible body checks to gain possession of the puck.


For younger players create a playing area away from the boards.


Can work with a coach on fundamentals.
