Last year we reported a womens team wearing helmets throughout an entire season. The trend is spreading across the country in not just lacrosse, but other sports as well. In contact sports like football and men’s lacrosse extra precaution is being taken with Guardian Caps. An Guardian Cap is an impact reducing soft-shell helmet cover to go on the outside of the helmet, worn by more 21,000 football players for the past three seasons and is now available for lacrosse.
The Guardian Cap is a one-size fits all 7oz. soft-shell helmet cover worn on the outside of the helmet containing the proper density, stiffness and energy absorbing properties to reduce the initial severity of the impact, ultimately reducing the impact to the head by 33%. The Guardian reduces the severity of blows from errant sticks, helmet-to-helmet collisions, and even a stray shot or pass that hits the head. The Guardian Cap does not affect the integrity of the helmet and attaches to the facemask via four elastic straps.
Permitted for high school practice and games by the NFHS (National Federation of State High School Association), the Guardian Caps have seen a tremendous amount of success on the football field and is now available for lacrosse helmet. Visit Guardiancaps.com.
