Come on - they’re only trying to prevent little kids dying of brain related diseases later in life.
It’s only for under 11s and it doesn’t apply in matches. What’s wrong with allowing children to develop their ball skills first? There’s plenty of time to learn how to head a ball properly later in their development, and if kids want to practise heading on their own they’ll find a cheap, lightweight, plastic ball and a wall - like we all did.
It’s a lot of fuss about nothing imo.
Yeah, this isn't people being snowflakes and panicking over nothing, there's a hell of a lot of very good research that has gone in to this, and all of it shows that heading the ball over a longer period of the time makes you many times more likely to develop dementia later in life, and an even further increased risk if you play certain positions.
Until even more research can be conducted and some solutions thought up, it makes perfect sense to remove the risk to kids in the meantime. Maybe eventually it'll just be banned outright, and if that's the only way to protect people, then it's clearly worth it. I doubt that will happen, though.
Heading is part of the game but if its causing one of the worst things (IMO) that can happen to a human being, you have to take some sort of action.
