Women’s Helmet: Common Sense Says Cuse

The women’s helmet: you either buy-in to the concept or you don’t. For the women’s lacrosse team over at Syracuse University, it seems to be unanimous – most players are wearing the new LX Headgear from Cascade. While every coach has his/her own opinion, it’s interesting to hear this from the mouth of the man behind “Air Gait”:

I have not seen any change in play at all. The face is still open on those helmets. Certainly, you shy away when you’re getting the sticks in the bodies. You still see people wanting to protect their face. I think that’s a natural reaction. The rules haven’t changed. The game stayed the same.
