My goal isn't to have hitting out of hockey. I know Atom kids that learned to skate in first year of hockey. To suggest that someone in Tier 8 Peewee needs to have bodychecking is downright ludicrous. The biggest complaints about this is the people that have kids that are elite or former elite players.(Saw Valk on Twitter complaining about the new rules)

So maybe they could lobby to have higher levels have contact.
Sorry, I forgot to add that the lower tiers would not have body checking.
