    The safety of the kids is exactly why this is a terrible idea. Learning to take a body check is a skill just like deking. Maybe, maybe… you decrease the injuries in minor hockey but I wouldn’t even want to hazard a guess as to the spike in injuries when the kids reach a level where contact is introduced. Essentially they are saying “Lets wait until the kids bodies are solid and virtually full grown, then allow them to launch themselves at other players who don’t know how to brace for a hit.”
