During my commute home from work I pass a field where some youth lacrosse program practices. Boys on one side of the field and girls on the other side. I notice all of the boy LAX players wearing full helmets, while the girls only wear eye guards (don't know if that's the correct term for that piece of equipment). At the moment I'm watching a college women's lacrosse game on TV (Maryland vs Syracuse). I notice the only players wearing full helmets are the goalies, while the rest of the players just wearing the eye guards. Is there any reason why helmets are not worn in women's/girls lacrosse? Personally knowing of a handful of dudes that have had their bells seriously rung playing lacrosse with helmets, I cringe seeing female players out there without them. What's the deal?
