Ironically the solution of seperating contact at peewee and earlier would put a lot of children in that exact same situation. Kids are going to want to move from non-contact to contact and vice versa (not such a problem).
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.
