As stupid as this may sound, if you have the personnel and space available, stickhandle a ball while you have a friend throw stuff at you, and try to dodge while maintaining control of the ball. After a while, you'll start not even thinking about the ball, and your hands will be kind of on auto-pilot.

If it is common where you are (I starting hitting @ 9 years old) that people start hitting in high school, then one of your first practices, or even several are likely to have hitting drills, some of which are all about keeping your head up.
if you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a bodycheck
