Checking goes far beyond "body contact" at Peak Performance Hockey. Our checking programs focus on 6 components of checking: 1) skating, 2) angling and positioning, 3) stick positioning/checking, 4) receiving a body check, 5) contact balance/confidence, and 6) body checking. These components along with "ice-awareness" are present in almost every level of hockey. It is essential to prepare players to advance into the next level with a solid understanding of the core skills, which will lead to increased confidence. At Peak, our checking clinics are customized to the age of the players.
