Actually I played 3 years of D1 ball and went to two final fours. What's your lacrosse resume, 1 year of a non competitive HS with no talent and now your the guy screaming on the sidelines like you have a clue. But I digress.
The brushes and hits to the head at the younger levels turn into vicious intentional fouls at the older levels. Youth players need to learn to keep the sticks low, play positional defense with the feet and keep the game clean. We need to change the culture not encourage it. I was at a tournament watching 2021 and 2022 kids parents screaming and applauding violent checks that drew penalties. Seriously, if you want to play football go ahead.

Thuggery is the only way that less skillful players can play with skilled players. As we have seen in hockey the game without the thuggery is a better game when played with skill players. The same goes for lacrosse. Strictly enforce the stick fouls and you will see the unskilled "enforcer" be replaced by the skilled player.

If thats your feeling than why not advocatocate for the removal of helmets. If there is going to be a a zero tolerance policy for any contact to the head then you don't need them. Implment the girls rules.as.the standard for all lacrosse. And as a side note I also played D1 lacrosse for 4 years, though I never made the tournament. So whats your point. Does that mean you don't sound like a sissy . Hits to the head are going to happen especially at the younger ages when they don't have the self control as older players, and they should be delt with on a case by case basis. Most hits to the head are grazing and harmless. Flagerant hits should be delt with harshly at all levels of play. Get the wad out of your pantys and teach kids how to play the game the correct way and stop crying for more rules.
