PLEASE KEEP THE GIRLS ON THE ICE!
They are essentially forcing many girls to quit hockey!
Older girls would be forced to play on boys' contact hockey teams, dress in a separate change room and be isolated from their teammates.
Parents who are willing to pay their fees are dedicated team members and are willing to drive their children to a larger centre. They should have the choice to do so.
This is a backwards step for female hockey and is very disappointing to parents, coaches and above all, players. Unfortunately many girls will no longer have a place to play hockey. They are losing out on the incredible benefits of sport.
