Headgear In Women's Lacrosse
Because girl's lacrosse is not a contact sport, headgear is optional for field players. In boy's lacrosse, most concussions are caused by player collisions resulting in high rotational forces and shearing. Helmets cannot protect against these types of forces. In girl's lacrosse, most concussions are caused by a ball or stick hitting the head, resulting in direct linear forces. Proper fitting helmets can provide some protection against these types of forces.

After seeing a demo with the All Ball Pro, we had to get one. It's a game changer. Read our complete review here.
