The Angling and Body Positioning Camp will take place over the course of a week and will focus on the following during each day…

    • Learning physical leverage as a fundamental skill that is used to make quick decisions and maintain proper body positioning relative to the opposing puck carrier
  • Day 2
    • Skating routes required for angling in tight area situations such as corners or when defending below the goal line
    • Learning how to manipulate the puck carrier to go where the checker wants them to go in tight areas
    • Angling used in forechecking situations
  • Day 3
    • Stick lifts from tracking behind an opponent
    • Stick lifts when pinning an opponent
    • “Stick on Puck” concept to always watch opponents’ body but always using peripheral vision to always mirror the checker’s stick to opposing puck carrier’s stick who has the puck
  • Day 4
    • The sequence after the checker has established proper angling and stick positioning, which is acceleration, contact and containment, which achieves the goal of separating the man from the puck and get possession back
    • Bumping skills using the body to separate the opponent from the puck
    • Learning how to check in a safe and effective manner
  • Day 5
    • Players will implement all of the skills and strategies learned over the week and apply them to an assortment of situational small area games
