New Cascade girls headgear

Yesterday on October 21st Cascade released some info on their new Cascade LX headgear. In the last 24 hours we have received a ton of emails, and online inquiries about what this new "girls helmet" will feel like, play like and most importantly will it be the new standard. A few videos have popped up in the past 24 hours. Right now there are a lot of questions and concerns over what will be mandatory and how female players will be able to play with this new piece of equipment. I think we can all agree that the execution of a protective headpiece was done very well by Cascade. Over the past few years we have seen some lack luster attempts to solve concussion and head injury issues.

Are we ready for a women lacrosse helmet? Many high level players and purists would argue that is a bad idea. Only time will tell if female lacrosse players will embrace this product. One thing is for sure, athletes who play are bigger, faster and stronger then they have been in the past. This evolution is accompanied by some high speed collisions and safety concerns. As the speed of the game evolves it is great to see companies like Cascade Lacrosse respond in the protective categories. The Cascade LX girls extended goggle/head protection could be a game changer.
