Peewee physical contact

Contact (checking) is allowed at the Bantam, Midget and Junior AA/BB/CC levels. Contrary to what you may have heard with regards to physical play, single letters do not allow body contact at any level while Double Letters allows body contact as of the Bantam level.

If you are concerned about this question you will find below a few links to the various Hockey Quebec resources on Physical Contact at the Bantam level. Please note that physical contact is viewed and should be used as an individual “puck retrieval” tactic. It is meant to be used for the purposes of rubbing an opponent off the puck or reducing the opponents time and space by cutting off their skating lanes. It is not meant to be used as an “intimidation” or “revenge/punishment” tool.
