Power Skating & Checking Training

Hong Kong Typhoons organization will be hosting a new and improved power skating and checking session in the Festival Walk this year. This is open to all ages. Just like skating, puck control, passing and shooting, there are key progressions to the skill of checking when taught effectively. A common misconception is that the skill of checking begins at a certain age or age category of play. In fact, checking is a multi step progression that begins the first time a young player steps on the ice. Depending on the age and ability, we will introduce the following steps slowly, positioning and angling, stick checks, contact confidence and body contact, and finally, body checking.
