A member of Shoreham-Wading River’s Wildcat Athletic Club is wondering why the school district doesn’t provide helmets for its boys lacrosse teams.
During last Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting, the club’s second vice-president, Jim Daly, said he believes the district should join the 25 other Long Island school districts that do provide helmets.

The Shoreham-Wading River school board is expected to discuss safety issues when it comes to sports equipment in the district — namely, whether athletes should be banned from using their own helmets, according to Tuesday’s meeting agenda.
