I would guess that as the players get older/bigger/stronger that the head injury rates would be higher, or at the very least the same, not less.

Ive been a proponent of offering both contact and non-contact options for everyone. I see no good reason not too, as long as there are enough participants in each stream to make it viable.

Again, why are we only protecting pee wee players? If head injuries are significant enough at that level to remove hitting from their game, why not at other levels?

Do you believe the head injury guru's are going to be satisfied with removing hitting from pee wee? Im thinking they want to see it gone altogether, at all levels.
