Read the articles in post #347. They answer many of your queries.
From the first article, second paragraph ;
Head injuries and concussions pose a serious threat to the welfare of young players. And research has shown that at youth level, on average between one and two players from each team will suffer a concussion every season. This is significantly higher than other contact sports such as ice hockey and American football.
Last sentence would lead you to think that protective sporting wear may have a role to play.
I am not advocating hard helmets, but perhaps more can be done to make the soft ones more effective.
