(PRWEB) January 10, 2014
Today, Level 2 Sports – a full-service sports events agency specializing in sponsorship activation and partnerships, and event branding and management – announced its partnership with Guardian Caps, a soft-shell helmet cover designed to reduce the severity of hits on the lacrosse field.
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, bringing their technology to players of all levels 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,” said 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 Erin and Lee Hanson’s 17-year background in operating a material sciences company that has done work for NASA, Boeing and 3M, as well as their passion for making a difference in protecting youth athletes.
“We are thrilled to work with the talented team at Level 2 Sports,” added 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 introduce our product to the lacrosse market.”
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.
Level 2 Sports will introduce the Guardian Caps to the lacrosse community at the US Lacrosse National Convention (Booth 648) in Philadelphia starting today, January 10, through Sunday, January 12.
