Hockey Canada has removed Body Checking from the PWE Division, based on the
following to be done immediately.
All Hockey Canada branches adopt the definition for body contact and body
checking as a national standard.
At the start of the 2013-14 season, the Hockey Canada board of directors
remove body checking from all levels of peewee hockey, placing continued
emphasis on body contact for this age group.
A Hockey Canada and branch workgroup build a mandatory national checking
educational and instructional resource program to support the progressive
implementation of checking skills at the atom and peewee level and to better
prepare players for body checking at the bantam and midget level.
Hockey Canada continues to work collaboratively with research groups to
investigate a number of areas of the game including but not limited to:
injury rates, return to play protocols, skill acquisition, knowledge
translation of coach education, and ongoing trends in registration.
CAC has always hosted a Checking Camp in our Hockey School. Hockey Alberta
mandates that all coaches at ATOM, Peewee and up take a Checking Clinic. This
includes Female. This has been in place in Alberta for several years now.
Here is a list of some of the skills from the Checking Clinic that have been
incorporated into the CAC Checking Camp. Body Checking is not the same as
Body Contact. Coaches should be teaching your players these skills all year.
Respect your opponent, 7 safety tips, Puck protection, Angling your opponent, Fore-Checking, Defenseman " pinching", " Tie-ups " in front of the net, Back Checking.
