I don't see any tangible benefit of having hitting in lower level hockey. What are we trying to teach them by allowing hitting at age of 11/12..or even 13/14?
You see any tangiblee benefit in allowing tacklin, line play in football? Contact in rugby? Lacrosse? How bout running in long distance running (its hard on the legs)? Practicing hitting balls in golf (real hard on the back)?
I cant see any tangible benefit to any of that.
Other than of course, its part of the sport.
