Checking Drills - Dryland Practice
Posted by: Loren Rhoton on Mon Mar 19th 2018 1:00pm
I want to emphasize the importance of body contact this season. We are going to work on getting the players comfortable with the physicality of the game. We put a good deal of focus on checking and body contact at the last practice and will revisit checking and physical play in future practices. In the meantime, I am providing the following Youtube link for dryland body contact drills:
These drills can be done off ice and will help to prepare the kids for on-ice contact/checking. They should get with another player of similar size and practice some of these drills in full gear.
The better prepared our players are to give and take hits, the less likely they are to get hurt or hurt others. And this development will significantly improve everyone's level of play.
Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2018 Season!

Hello players and parents! Welcome to Bantam/Midget Team Teal (BM2). Coach Loren and Coach Bill are very excited about the season and we hope you are too.
A few reminders:
- Please remind players to think of a team name
- Each player should bring a second jersey to each practice
- Players should arrive at least 30 minutes before each game/practice
- On game days, players should be fully dressed and seated in the locker room 15 minutes before game time
See you at the Rink!
