Enforce the rules(Ill refs r awful at this)regarding boarding,charging and checks
from behind and the kids learn how to check and more importantly be checked.
By waiting till Bantam the kids lose 2 years of valuable game feedback
on whats acceptable and responsible behavior on the ice.Under this rule
the first contact they will have is right about the time many of them
r hitting puberty and the testosterone starts to flow.Probably not a great
time to teach kids how to control their actions during games.
