As a minor hockey coach, absolutely not. This is not about "getting out of the 1950's", it is about protecting everybody involved...the girls from any possible abuse, the guys on the team from letting their hormones control them (in minor hockey, especially peewee and up, you know it's going to happen), and the coaches, parents and governing bodies from liability for any possible abuse.

The locker room is the place where the guys on the team can be themselves, they can talk how they want, etc. If you include a girl into the room, censorship on content and language is re-introduced.

Rules here in minor hockey, are that the guys must have t-shirts and all bottom equipment on before the girls may enter, wearing the same minimum amount of gear. That's the way it should be.
