Start by measuring the circumference of your head finishing across the middle of your forehead right above your eyebrow and across your temples. This number (in inches) will give you the approximate size in accordance with size chart provided bellow. Once received, you should be looking through the topmost bars of the helmet. The helmet should feel like it is "tilted" down in order to see out of these bars. You might think the neck is exposed, but lacrosse helmets are designed to protect the face and throat more so than the back of the head. Once you have done this, remove the chinstrap completely and place on your chin so that is tight to your face. While holding the chinstrap up to your face, shorten the straps so they line up with the snap buttons and tighten accordingly. This will keep your helmet from bouncing on your head.
The helmet is the most important piece of safety equipment for a lacrosse player. The head is the number one thing that needs to be protected, and you need the perfect fit to be fully protected. If you choose a helmet that's too small, it won't fit properly and could dangerously expose the head and neck area. If you chose one that is too large, it will move around too much on your head and won't provide full protection. Both of these can increase the chance of injury from checks, balls, and hitting the ground.
