There has been increased discussion about the relative safety in girls’ lacrosse these days, particularly with respect to head and face injury. ESPN aired a piece in August that focused on two girls’ high school players in Pittsburgh who had suffered concussions while playing…and Section 8 of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association introduced a proposal to require all players to wear men’s lacrosse helmets beginning in 2012. The measure was rejected by a 7-2 vote of the association’s safety committee on December 2, which followed a US Lacrosse presentation that focused on the rules and culture of girls’ lacrosse…and our proactive efforts to address player safety ongoing.
