Bantam/Midget C & A - Checking & Body Play Clinics

Body checking is a skill just like any other hockey skill. Recent feedback has told us that VMHA has not provided enough opportunities to learn and perfect those skill during controlled training, in order to best prepare our players to both deliver and receive hits safely. 

In an effort to provide this, VMHA will be offering ongoing checking and body play clinics throughout the season. These clinics will be led by Johnny Mahovlich, with assistance from our Midget/Bantam rep coaches. 

The first group of clinics is now available for registration. Please register using the links below a la carte, or all three sessions.

These clinics are open to all Bantam and Midget "A" and "C" players.  Players will be grouped based on size, age and experience during the sessions.

Friday Oct 20 - 930pm - $20

Friday Oct 27 - 930pm - $20

Friday Nov 3 - 930pm  - $20

Or all 3 for $50. (combo)
Friday Oct 20 to Friday Nov 3

We apologize for short notice however BC Hockey has just advised us of an offer to attend a hockey specific first aid course. It is set for September 30th - 12:30-7:30 at South Surrey Arena.


This is a pilot program the BC Hockey and Sport Med BC are working in partnership on. They have taken the basic First Aid and changed it to focus directly on hockey scenarios. 


Content: Participants will be guided through Emergency Action Planning, Medical Record keeping and documentation of injuries, Recognition and Management of Life Threatening and Non-Life Threatening Scenarios, Concussion Recognition and Acute Management and Return to Play Protocols, as well as Injury Prevention Principles.


The link for the course is:


Coaches and HCSP will be reimbursed the $40 cost.


We understand this timeline may be a challenge for some to meet. We will make efforts to bring an offering like to a local venue this season.
