Youth Lacrosse Injuries: “High Hits To Head And Neck” Not Limited To High School Boys Lacrosse As NorCal U13 Game Footage Shows Illegal Cross-Checks And Hits To Player’s Heads That Produced Multiple In-Game Concussions (Video)


Comment from laxbuzz viewer:

“You are doing a great job with your website and particularly with your pieces on enforcing the head/neck rule to protect the players.”

 It isn’t limited to HS though, below is part of a weekly email to coaches from John Sheehan of the NCJLA about high hits during a Nor Cal youth U13A game: 

“We had several high hits to the head.  Here’s a link to some actual footage from a U13A game that shows what not to do.  Please educate your players on proper checks and the damage it does to the players who receive these hits.  Here’s the link that you may need to cut and paste to view http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1KnJQUOnFo  “

I am not sure if these hits were called but I do know that several concussions occurred during this sequence.

Keep up the good work!

  1. My name is Mary Alice Hill and I can help you reach your goal by coming to your school and motivate the youth by a great motivational speaking about how I used to train Olympians!
    See you soon

  2. Oh no, that’s awful! I once had to go in for head and neck surgery in Idaho and it was NOT fun. I feel like I’m still recovering! I feel his pain! Thanks for the post!
