Your arguement doesn't support your stance. You say teach them younger, yet your arguement says inexperience is the culprit. Give the kids extra time to develop their other skills and they will have more time to be able to avoid hits because they don't have to look at the puck while stickhandling. As for coaches teaching bad habits, that's a fault of the system and needs to be corrected, but that happens at all age levels.
