2023 Body Checking Clinic


Mandatory Hockey Nova Scotia Checking Clinic

Checking Clinics are required for any new U15 players (U13 moving up to U15 for the 2023-24 season) or any players who wish to play contact hockey in the 2023-24 season.  We recommend that even if you plan to register for non-contact hockey, you may wish to take the clinic in order to be considered as an affiliate player from the "C" program.   

The clinic will include 1 hour of off-ice instruction (players will be dressed in full gear, except skates), and 3 hours of on-ice, broken into two 90-minute sessions.  This HNS approved clinic will be led by Kyle MacDonald, TASA Technical Director.

 If required, due to numbers, a second ice time may be added.  If your player attends a checking clinic with another association, proof of attendance must be forwarded to TASA.  Players must have their Hockey Canada Profile updated with the Checking Clinic to be approved for contact hockey.


The cost of the clinic is $65.  Payment can be sent to [email protected].
