2024 Body Contact Clinic

By Marty Rubin, 02/16/24, 3:30PM PST


Safely practice body contact before tryouts!

SJHA is excited to announce our free 2024 Body Contact Clinic. These three 75 minute on-ice sessions will give players a chance to practice the concepts of competitive contact in a safe, low-stakes environment. USA Hockey regards competitive contact as a far more integral component to contact hockey than body checking. SJHA will be using USA Hockey's Body Contact curriculum to inform our planning and teaching. Competitive contact includes the following: Receiving Along the Boards, Receiving on Open Ice, Receiving from Behind, Rubbing Out, Screening Out, Boxing Out, Pinning. Throughout the clinic we will focus on these skills and contextualize them in game-like situations. 

Safety and ethics in contact hockey will be the paramount topic. 

This clinic will be open to all 2010 & 2011 birth year players currently playing Rec hockey (non contact) who would like to tryout for a Rep team (contact) next year. We will limit the group to a certain number of spots, so please sign up soon.

All sessions will be held at OVA:
Tuesday, March 19th 5:45pm - 7:00pm
Wednesday, March 20th 5:45pm - 7:0pm
Thursday, March 21st 5:45pm-7:00pm

If you have any questions, please let know! Thank you all and good luck as you wrap up your team's seasons! See you soon!
