(actual helmet soccer players are going to wear)

 

 

Source - A New Jersey school district is ordering all students who play soccer – and other non-contact sports – to wear helmets on the field.  The Princeton School District’s new rule is causing many parents – and even some doctors – to question whether soccer is really dangerous enough to warrant mandatory headgear to protect children from concussion.  However, school administrators are moving forward with a plan to purchase $70 soft helmets for every athlete grades six through 12 who plays soccer, field hockey or girls’ lacrosse. The Times of Trenton reports that concussions and head injuries are not common among Princeton schools student athletes, but coaches and members of the school board say that doesn’t alleviate their concern. ’We’re very aware that for players in all sports there’s a risk of head injuries and we’re just trying to do whatever we can to prevent them,’ Princeton school board president Timothy Quinn said.

Americans are obsessed with putting kids in pads and helmets for sports

I can understand wearing a helmet for lacrosse, those balls are hard as hell, as for the other ones that's bs. The pussification continues. Phone Post

Taylor Twellman did to where he had to retire from it but it's very rare that it's a big problem like he had

THANKS OBAMA!

They should just cut the bullshit and play FIFA 14 instead. With padded gloves, of course. Phone Post

Makes me think of the little nerdy kid in the Little Giants movie that comes to football practice in a full body suit.


....My mom said the pads you gave me weren't enough.

Recent studies have demonstrated that concussive brain trauma is as prominent in soccer as it is in contact sports such as American football or ice hockey-

Concussions occur at the same rate as in American Football-
