Dave Turpen started this petition to U.S.A. Hockey

My name is Autumn Turpen and I am a 12 year old female hockey player. I think females should be allowed to check because at about 15 years old males are allowed to check. By the time girls/women are 15 they will be or very close to almost fully developed. In boys/men’s hockey a lot of people like to go to their games( unlike girls ) I think part of that reason is because it’s a lot more physical which in my opinion and I think others too is because boys/men get to check and girls/women  do not. Even in boys/men’s hockey the goal in checking is not to hurt one another but to separate the opponent from the puck I believe it is sexist, or at least over-protective to not allow girls/women to play with the same  physicality. Allowing girls to  beginning at age 15 would give them time to develop physically, which should put to rest many people’s concerns about increased injury risk.
