Body Contact and Checking Clinics

Sunday Nights during the months of March, April & May 2019.

Time: 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Simply the BEST Body Contact Clinics around! We cover angling, puck protection, checking technique, how to absorb a check, endurance, and toughness.  These clinics are run on both ponds, with a max of 24 participants.  Open to all ages, these clinics work best when participants sign up in pairs so they have someone to work against during drills. Is your Peewee moving up to Bantam and has to start checking this spring? This is the perfect opportunity to learn the correct way to check and take a check safely. Don’t worry anymore about your child’s safety, we have got you covered and prepared!

Instructed by Terry Watt, Ray Vallejo or other / talented members of Protec’s Coaching Staff.

This way, everyone gets involved and can achieve their goals during and after hockey.” Coach Terry Watt will also be leading Predators Gold U18 and Predators Peewee Gold this Spring
