Guardian Cap Making an Impact in the Lacrosse Community

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.

    There is no need for this, more parts more vibration which means more head injuries. Also affecting the air flow to a helmet means it wont breath which will lead to dehydration at a faster rate. I get that concussions are bad and yeah people used to downplay them but they are becoming the pitbull/rotweiler problem of the sports world.

    The problem is that you would be disadvantaging yourself by wearing this because refs wouldn’t hear the sound of stick-on-helmet, and less penalties would be called against the opposing team.

    Good point. It does reduce the sounds of the hits to the head. These are designed to be worn during practices. You want to decrease the impact and sound of the impact. It has been tested to greatly reduce the acoustical and bibrational frequencies and in lacrosse helmets lowers the Severity Index from > 1000 to less than 600.
