Should helmuts be required for scrambling Discuss the use of helmuts in scrambling and whether or not they should be required for the course or for trips. 1

There is no debate about wearing helmets. The question is, should we require students to provide their own? In the past, the course has supplied helmets which get shared by students as they need them.

Since they need them for trips, anyway, should we change the policy and require them to provide their own.


  • Ends "helmet shuffling" between students and stations
  • Students more self-sufficient; better prepared for trips requiring helmets
  • Ends carrying bags of helmets to/from field trip locations
  • Increases safety because helmets can be worn continuously


  • Adds expense to taking the course
