This is my son's first year with checking (1st year Bantam for other hockey parents), and this past Sunday they had their first coach-lead scrimmage, which is like a game but coaches are on the ice instead of refs.
So guess what happens to my son during his first hockey game with checking?
He got checked from behind.
Pretty scary for me to watch, but fortunately, he didn't have any injury from it.
Have you had any moments that made you uncomfortable while watching your child play sports?
