Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs’ U14 (2008) and U15 (2007) Bantam Checking Clinics
Submitted By Dianne Skirving on Thursday, September 2, 2021
The Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs organization will be holding checking clinics for U14 (2008) and U15 (2007) divisions.  These clinics are available to all players who register online for Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs 2021-22 Fall Tryouts.  There is no cost for players to attend these clinics as it is included in your online registration fee.

It is a requirement that all players in the U14 (2008) and U15 (2007) divisions must participate in a checking clinic prior to tryouts.  This requirement will be met by the player’s attendance at the HJB Checking Clinics, or by presenting a proof of attendance with a previous team/organization, or privately through a certified private checking clinic.   

HJB U14 (2008) and U15 (2007) Checking Clinic details are as follows:

U14 (2008) Checking Clinic

Date:  Wednesday, September 8, 2021
Clinic Time:  6:40pm to 7:50pm
Location: Mohawk 4 Ice Centre – 710 Mountain Brow Blvd. Hamilton

U15 (2007) Checking Clinic
Date:  Wednesday, September 8, 2021
Clinic: 8:00pm – 9:15pm
Location: Mohawk 4 Ice Centre – 710 Mountain Brow Blvd. Hamilton

The Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs organization recognizes that checking is a critical skill in the game of hockey and when performed properly can create quality scoring opportunities or help a team regain control of the puck. A common misconception is that the skill of checking begins at a certain age or age category of play. In fact, checking is a 4-­step progression that begins the first time a young player steps on the ice.  Body checking is the fourth and final step of a 4-step teaching progression.
