One of the biggest topics in women’s lacrosse is the introduction of legislation requiring helmets that offer more protection than the currently-required goggles. Players, coaches, administrators, and parents have become more aware of the potential for head injuries as well as the resulting liability.
Everyone involved wants the same thing—to keep the athletes safe. Many theories exist on the best way to keep players safe and they often diverge on the issue of whether or not to legislate women's lacrosse helmets. As the game exists today, there are tightly enforced rules in place designed to keep players safe. Many people have weighed in on whether additional rules and their enforcement are enough to keep kids safe.
