That kid moving to contact against experienced players is in a ton more danger in my opinion than a kid moving into contact and learning the same time as his pears.

The solution of not allowing a child to move from non-contact to contact won't hold up in courts either in my opinion.
Bantam is still a 2 year division, so half the players will be introduced to hitting against player in their second year of hitting.
