I don't think that the "Head injury" lobby will stop at Peewee and may try to lobby further. The association in this case likely agrees with the lobby at this level, but I do think they feel that the hitting reduces the number of participants. That may be the underlying reasoning.
Do you really believe that participation would drop off because there is no bodychecking? If anything I think this new ruling will increase enrollment into peewee hockey.
