Introduction of Body Checking Moves from Peewee to Bantam for 2013/2014 Season
Submitted By Theresa Fierheller on Sunday, June 16, 2013
At Hockey Canada's AGM held in Charlottetown, PEI on the weekend of May 25,26th, it was voted on and approved that Body Checking be moved from the Peewee level to Bantam for the upcoming 2013/2014 season.

Hockey Canada Motion – 6.2b, one of the major topics from the weekend’s proceedings was the discussion on body checking. The Hockey Canada Board passed a motion to create a national standard moving the introduction age of Body Checking from Peewee to Bantam effective the 2013-2014 season.

This direction follows a decision made by Ontario Hockey Federation [OHF] Minor Member Partners, including the Ontario Minor Hockey Association [OMHA] to remove Body Checking from all divisions of House League and House League Select hockey, effective the 2011-2012 season.
