Minor hockey means serious risks
As the National Hockey League and provincial major junior leagues grind into playoff season, provincial and local minor hockey associations across the country go into annual general meeting mode.
Now is the time for parents to instruct the minor hockey bureaucrats to whom they delegate responsibility for the safety of their children to deal with bodychecking and brain injury for players participating at the entry level of Canada's game.
Leading neurologists, pediatricians, institutes specializing in brain and spinal cord injuries, parents whose kids have paid the price of ignorance and inaction and the often-marginalized minor hockey officials who actually do pay attention to research are generally agreed that bodychecking is really bad for kids under 15.
The mission of Brainstreams.ca is provide 24/7 access to information and resources for the thousands of people who experience brain injury in BC and beyond each year.
We are actively seeking collaborators who share our vision to build Brainstreams.ca into a world-class online knowledge hub.
