What would you expect when the sport does not require shoulder pads, aside from the youngest age groups, and when not every association can afford a roller hockey floor, so they're playing on concrete floors?

Just asking, because the basis for throwing a "bodycheck" is to use your body to separate body from puck, so if you squeeze someone out on the boards, you are effectively checking them into the boards.

Now if they try and squeeze through a hole that isn't there, that's their problem as long as you already have position and do nothing to close that hole off as they go by.
Bodychecking is when you either deliver the contact with force or when you are traveling in the opposite direction as your opponent. Skating along side your opponent and pinching him off along the boards as you take the puck away is not bodychecking in any rulebook.

You can use your body to separate your opponent from the puck without throwing a bodycheck.
