There are always certain risks in life.  Removing those risks completely (like padding the base of a jungle gym) makes the child less resilient.  That being said, contact sports using helmets, like football and lacrosse, should be avoided before age 14.  Likewise heading in soccer should also be outlawed until after that age.
