My 11-yr. old daughter has played recreationally for a few years. She can rally a bit and hit a basic serve. Eventually she will play on her HS team but is not going to be playing USTA or trying for a college scholarship. She does get a weekly lesson that is fairly informal (college students at a local tennis facility). Specifically, at what point would she move from an eastern to a SW forehand if at all? My thought is that, long term, she would be better off switching sooner rather than later. I had her spend 20-min. trying it out and she had the typical issues (hitting into the net, "it feels strange", etc.).
