Helmet Warning Label
In an effort to warn players of the risk of injury, the NOCSAE Board of Directors has developed
a warning statement, model adaptations of which are found on all football, baseball/softball batting and
lacrosse helmets. The statements are a part of each standard and are intended to warn participants of the
possibility of severe head or neck injury despite the fact a certified helmet is being worn. The helmet is
designed to help protect the head. Neither, football, baseball/softball batting, or lacrosse helmets can
protect the player's neck.
NOCSAE urges that the warning statement be shared with members of the football, baseball,
softball and lacrosse squads and that all coaches alert participants to the potential for injury. The wording
of the warning statement as set forth in the NOCSAE standard is a general suggestion and may change
from time to time.

Example of a Football Helmet Warning Label
WARNING!
Keep your head up. Do not butt, ram, spear, or strike an opponent with any part of this helmet or facemask. This is
a violation of football rules and may cause you to suffer severe brain or neck injury, including paralysis or death
and possible injury to your opponent. Contact in football may result in CONCUSSION/BRAIN INJURY which no
helmet can prevent. Symptoms include: loss of consciousness or memory, dizziness, headache, nausea or
confusion. If you have symptoms, immediately stop and report them to your coach, trainer, of parents. Do not
return to a game or contact until all symptoms are gone and you receive medical clearance. Ignoring this warning
may lead to another more serious or fatal brain injury.
NO HELMET SYSTEM CAN PROTECT YOU FROM SERIOUS BRAIN AND/OR NECK INJURIES INCLUDING PARALYSIS
OR DEATH. TO AVOID THESE RISKS, DO NOT ENGAGE IN THE SPORT OF FOOTBALL.

WARNING!
No helmet can completely prevent all head injuries or any neck injuries a player might receive while participating
in baseball or softball. Severe head or neck injury, including paralysis or death may occur to you despite using this
helmet. Do not use this helmet if it is cracked or dented or if the interior padding has deteriorated. For proper
protection this helmet should be fitted correctly.
