    The purpose of the present study was to provide a profile of rule infractions at the Bantam (14–15 years old) level of ice hockey. For each penalty, information is provided on the: (a) category and type, (b) period of the game, (c) number of players penalized, and (d) zone and area on the ice surface where the infraction occurred. Gamesheet reports and videotapes of 55 games from five leagues revealed 850 penalties. There was an average of 15.5 penalties per game with most penalties classified as minor aggression penalties (62.4%). The number of penalties tended to increase from the first period to the third period. Most of the penalties were assessed to one player at a time (74.9%); however, the percentage of multiple player penalties tended to increase from one period to the next. More penalties were assessed to players in their defensive zone, and particularly in the area in front of the net.
