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 
4-star helmets.

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.
