Youth Soccer Headgear - Looking Ahead

We are all starting to see it, particularly on younger players. Everyone from NBC News to the federal government to parents on the sidelines are talking about it. Share your POV about this new era of protective-wear and if you are/ have/will/ would never purchase it for your child.

i would hate to see the same fear that has been instilled into youth tackle football, translate and crossover into youth soccer. injuries occur, they are unfortunate. we live and consistently instill fear into not only sports, but almost everything related to our everyday lives....i would not hesitate to put headgear on my daughter, she already wears a cushion headband...my point is not to go overboard with the topic
