So it stands to reason that they take it out of that level too.
I believe it was stated earlier in this thread that one of the studies done shows that peewee aged kids are more likely to get a concussion because their neck muscles are not developed enough to protect themselves from a whiplash concussion.

Someone posted the idea of a minor and major bantam levels. I like that idea because first year bantam players all start learning to hit together and if the studies are correct, their bodies have grown and matured enough that the risk of whiplash concussions are at a reduced level.
