U13 & U15 Checking Clinics - Sept. 11
Submitted By Director of Communications on Sat 08 20, 22
On September 11th MTMHA & TPH (Total Package Hockey) will be hosting a checking clinic for all MTMHA registered U13 & U15 age players.

For our U13 age players (2010/2011 birth year), the purpose of this clinic will be an introduction to the key stages and technique associated with the NCCP checking progression model and what tactics can and cannot be applied at the U13 level.  Realizing players don't get into full body checking until U15 age, many of these techniques should be applied throughout a player’s development and if taught effectively, can enhance a player’s ability to control the puck, create quality scoring opportunities, ensure their own personal safety, and develop confidence in how they play the game.

For our U15 age players (2008/2009 birth year) the purpose of this clinic will be to
continue teachings of the NCCP 4-step progression model related to body checking including
positioning, angling, stick checks, contact confidence, and body checking.

- All U13 & U15 players are encouraged to attend
- For 2009 Players wishing to tryout for U15 Tier 1 or Tier 3 travel teams this
season, attendance is mandatory 
- For the 2008 skaters who attended the checking clinics last year,
you are encouraged to attend but it is not mandatory. 
- Additionally, any players being called up (AP’d) from U13 to U15 or U15 LL to U15
travel level this season will need to have taken this clinic for eligibility to compete.
- Coaches will be on ice to assist players and TPH staff.
- Session attendance will be recorded.
- There is no cost to attend the sessions
- Registration not required
- GOALIES are not required to attend the sessions

Session times for September 11th are as follows:

U13 Group 1 (Last Name A-M) -  8:30am to 9:20am
