The resolution to remove body checking from Peewee rep hockey was defeated, 215 for – 231 opposed, at the BC Hockey AGM tonight. Therefore players in the rep level of hockey in PCAHA will be playing contact hockey as per the usual. Lots of parents were under the impression that there was going to be no contact this season

Inside Edge Hockey will be offering a body checking and battle drill camp for peewee aged players the first week of August at the Burnaby Winter Club. The focus of the clinic is to give every player the proper tools and confidence to check and compete for the hockey puck. Players are grouped into 2 to 4 stations on the ice, depending on the drills, and there are three qualified coaches on the ice each session. Players will receive constant feedback and pointers. This is a great tune up camp for rep try-outs.
