thanks Nancy for giving us this information - I would like the Board to
highlight on page two, a little past 1/2 page this comment however "While there
are large differences between the top performing helmets and the least
performing helmets, the different between the 5-star and 4-star helmets is much
less" In addition, the article recommends purchasing one of the 5-star or
Purchasing price does not factor into the safety (independent not manufacturers)
ratings - prices vary the article states.
I am glad parents are looking at safety - however, I trust the Coach in deciding
which helmets to purchase; in addition, our helmet choice is a top rated helmet
based on this articles and it's own safety ratings.
