    Raising the age of checking is not a good idea for the long term health and safety of players. Could you imagine playing 10 years before introducing this physical game changing component? Bad habits are already developed.

    Yeah, I didn't like when they removed it from peewees. Removing it from bantams wouldn't be good. Also, I wish they'd play touch up off side at peewees.

    This is the wrong way to look at it.
    The new rules actually encourage contact at earlier ages.
    At u8 small area battles.
    U10 net side battles and battles along the boards. Angling also introduced
    By u12 the only thing missing is open ice trolley track collisions

    Full blown hitting at earlier ages was a detriment

    so my son officially is a general. thoughts? prayers?
    the head of hockey at generals accepted him within 10 mins into practice/tryout. didn't specify which team he's going to be on (they have 5 peewee teams) but I told him any team will do as long as he plays.

    RB has a great program. Teams are generally pretty strong. Good luck to him !

    Agree. Seems to be a well-coached, well run program. It is also the best rink in the area with great ice.

    True, but Dix Hills is not a top tier program, nor do they claim to be.
