Youngsters playing Pee Wee in 2012-13 moving up to Bantam for 2013-14 will have contact experience.
Bantam AAA if available in a jurisdiction is usually divided Minor - first year Bantams and Major - second year Bantams. As you can see the change will always be accompanied by a level playing field where all kids have equal backgrounds at the start of the season. No youngster at no point will be learning on the fly as you claim.
Teaching Bantams to body check.at the AAA level requires about a month if the coaches know the proper techniques and can actually teach.
