Why 2nd Skull is great for soccer players

Our new product, 2nd Skull, offers superior protection for all players in all sports…including soccer!

Soccer is a high-impact sport.

Soccer is a contact sport, and there is no doubt about it. Whether you are fearlessly attempting a header off a corner or tackling a charging opponent, collisions and high impacts are inevitable in the beautiful game.

The American Association of Neurological Surgeons reported:

“The following sports/recreational activities represent the categories contributing to the highest number of estimated head injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms in 2018.

  • Cycling: 64,411
  • Football: 51,892
  • Baseball and Softball: 24,516
  • Basketball: 38,898
  • Powered Recreational Vehicles (ATVs, Dune Buggies, Go-Carts, Mini bikes): 30,222
  • Soccer: 26,955”

So, as you can see in this report, soccer is a high impact sport and head injuries are way too frequent. 

The 2nd Skull Headband is engineered to reduce head impact in soccer and offers the added protection that soccer players need.
