Canadian Youth Hockey Injuries Cut In Half after National Policy Change

(Reuters Health) - Injuries fell by half and concussions were reduced by
almost two thirds after Hockey Canada banned body checking for players
younger than 13 years old, researchers say.

.

Concussions are among the most commonly-occurring injuries in youth
recreation, and although many recover quickly, some experience ongoing
symptoms, said study author Kathryn Schneider of the University of Calgary
Sport Injury Prevention Research Center in Alberta.

.

The goal is to reduce the public health impact of this by preventing
injuries from the start, she told Reuters Health.

.

About half a million youth in the U.S. and Canada are registered in ice
hockey leagues each year, the researchers write in British Journal of
Sports Medicine. Past research has identified body-checking  slamming into
an opponent in an effort to separate them from the puck  as a major source
of injuries, they add.

.

In 2013, Hockey Canada disallowed body checking in Pee Wee leagues made up
of 11- and 12-year-olds, postponing its introduction to the Bantam league,
made up of 13- and 14-year olds. To see how the new policy affected
injuries, the research team looked at records for the 2011-2012 season,
before the change, and for the 2013-2014 season that followed the change.
