Aidan Mansmann started this petition to USA Hockey

I am a high school hockey player in southern Maine and the age group for that I play in is named midgets by USA hockey. Often times I have friends and family that like to come to my games and my family knows a little boy with dwarfism and I could imagine how he would feel walking in to the rink and seeing something that said midgets. This name has been changed in most countries with national hockey associations like hockey Canada. This name is insensitive and should be changed. Hockey is not the only sport that uses this name to label a age category. Basketball also uses this as a name but I don’t know what the age group is. There are no reasons to keep this name and there are many reasons to change it.
