2024-25 U14 Body Checking Clinic Information (Guelph Minor Hockey Association)

Print2024-25 U14 Body Checking Clinic Information


GMHA will be offering all current U13 GMHA Players a pre-tryout checking clinic. Participation in these checking clinics is mandatory for all players intending to participate in 2024-2025 rep tryouts.

Although current 2023-24 GMHA players will not incur an additional cost for these skates, registration is still required.

Once registration is complete, players will be grouped based on total numbers and playing level in the 2023-2024 season. This helps to ensure that all players are introduced to body checking along with others players at their same approximate skill level.

All players are expected to attend all 3 sessions. Instruction will begin with the basic fundamentals of proper angling and body checking and will progress in speed and intensity over the course of the 3 sessions. The focus will be on how to safely and legally give and receive body checks with the purpose of separating your opponent from the puck.


The below schedule is the allotted ice times GMHA has secured and your child will be placed in three 50-minute time slots within those times:

  • Tuesday, April 9th - 5:00pm to 9:00pm @ U of G (Red)

  • Saturday, April 13th - 2:00pm to 6:00pm @ U of G (Red) 

  • Tuesday, April 16th - 5:00pm to 9:00pm @ U of G (Red)


Your player's group and specific schedule will be communicated prior to the first session.
