Yes women can check, but not as much as the men. Their checks have to be short (meaning you can't hold your stick there). Their checks also must to be under control (meaning you can't swing your stick). Depending on your age level, the checks can be below the knee, below the waist, below the shoulder, or anywhere. Checks can never be near the head because of safety reasons. Ask your ref what the checking is before your game. Good Luck!
