Bonus Episode: Why Isn‘t USA Lacrosse Protecting Female Players?
Oct 25th, 2021 by Legally Brief
Boys and men that play lacrosse must wear helmets to protect against concussions and other injuries.
For girls and women lacrosse players, who face concussion and injuries, there is no helmet mandate.
It is estimated that over 44% of concussions suffered by female lacrosse players could have been prevented if these players wore helmets.
USA Lacrosse, the institution that oversees women's lacrosse, uses "tradition" and avoidance as a way to not mandate helmets for women.
But change agent, dad, coach and entrepreneur Rob Stolker is challenging tradition with the co-founding of Hummingbird Sports https://www.hummingbirdsports.com/.
Rob and Hummingbird Sports are on a mission to change the way we protect female lacrosse player.
