Fighting in PeeWee Hockey?
Had some extended family over recently. one of them was talking about her niece's PeeWee ice hockey league. She said that they allow full on fist fights on the ice during games?!?!?!?!?!? I was incredulous and couldn't believe it. they actually defended the practice and said "its hockey" like it is no big deal. They were saying her niece is constantly getting checked/bothered on the ice and it is the only way to stop it. She also mentioned that the coaches/officials couldnt stop it from happening. I think that is one of the most foolish things I had heard in a very long time. actually thinking the coaches/officials couldnt put a very quick end to it.
Keep in mind, her niece is currently 11 and apparently this has been going on for a number of years, like since she was 9 or so.
What in the world?
I didnt want to cause WWIII at the dinner table with people I seldom see, so I let it go. but I have to ask, is this commonplace?
It seems absolutely crazy to me to allow that to happen.
