Media Advisory - Calgary Physiotherapist's Research Provides Evidence To Inform Hockey Canada's Ban On Bodychecking In Peewee Hockey

MONTREAL, May 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Findings from one of the Canada's leading researchers in injury and concussion prevention in youth sport and recreation led to Hockey Canada's decision yesterday to eliminate bodychecking in peewee ice hockey involving 11 and 12- year-old players.

Carolyn Emery is a physiotherapist member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), and University of Calgary associate professor who co-chairs the Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre in the Faculty of Kinesiology. She is an injury epidemiologist and has studied injuries and concussions in youth hockey players with her group for over 10 years. Her research program has provided much of the evidence that informed Hockey Canada's landmark decision.

"This policy change will prevent at least 5,000 injuries and over 1,500 concussions in 11- and 12-year-old hockey players next season," says Emery, praising the decision.

Emery is currently in Montreal attending CPA's annual Congress. She will be available for interviews on Sunday, May 26.
