Hockey Body Checking Drills

Jeremy Weiss shows coaches some checking drills to work with your players ... from Jeremy's website:

"Remember, as you progress into hockey body checking drills, to stress that the purpose of body checking in hockey is to separate the man from the puck. To do this effectively, players need a strong base in the following areas:

  1. “Raw” Skating Ability
  2. Agility
  3. Body Positioning (Angling, Gap Control, etc…)
  4. Stick Positioning
  5. Make the Hit

This video shows a simple drill to work on angling with your players."
