Alpharetta, GA. – January 9, 2014 – Guardian Caps, a soft-shell helmet cover designed to reduce the severity of hits on the lacrosse field, announced today its partnership with Level 2 Sports, a full service sports events agency specializing in sponsorship activation and partnerships, event branding and management.
“We are thrilled to work with the talented team at Level 2 Sports,” says Lee Hanson, founder of Guardian Caps. “Their expertise in the lacrosse industry will be instrumental in helping us bring awareness and further our mission as we bring our product to the lacrosse market.”
Founded in 2011, Guardian Caps has made considerable strides when it comes to safety in the football industry. The positive feedback from coaches, parents and trainers has inspired Guardian Caps expansion to the lacrosse market brining their technology to players of all level across the country with the help of Level 2 Sports.
“We are honored to be ambassadors of the Guardian Caps technology in the lacrosse market,” says Joel Franklin, Level 2 Sports Events Director. “The success they’ve seen in the short time since their establishment shows a promising future, especially in the lacrosse industry.”
The Guardian Cap flips traditional helmet design inside out by adding exterior padding to helmets. The Guardian Cap attaches to all football and lacrosse helmets, reducing the severity of blows up to 33%. The soft-shell energy management system is decoupled from the helmet, addressing both linear and rotational forces.
The creation of the Guardian Caps stems from the Hanson’s 17-year background in operating a material sciences company that has done work for NASA, Boeing, 3M, as well as their passion for making a difference in protecting youth athletes.
Currently, more than 21,000 players at the youth, high school and collegiate level have adopted the Guardian Caps technology, including the University of South Carolina, Clemson University and High Point University.
