USA Hockey strongly discourages checking from behind but if it should happen while you′re facing the boards get your stick and gloves up to spread out the area of impact. Use your arms as shock absorbers.
Change with the seasons. Take advantage of the holidays that take place over the course of the season. We'll host various events to correspond with holidays such as Halloween Thanksgiving Christmas and the New Year. It can take a little extra effort but the same team effort you expect of your players on the ice can be beneficial off the ice if parents are willing to get involved.
To carry out the proper checks along the boards you must learn to force the puck carrier towards the boards. The key is to steer the puck carrier in the direction you want by angling him or her into the boards under a controlled speed : Keep yourself stick-to-stick and body-to-body with the puck carrier continue to skate when close to the puck carrier — don′t glide into the check concentrate on the puck carrier not the puck aim to hit a point on the boards in front of the puck carrier keep your body low and your legs spread for balance.
