Academy x Guardian Caps Give Back

Donating Guardian Caps to Youth Football Players

Academy Sports + Outdoors and Guardian Caps partnered to surprise 25 youth athletes of Kyle Youth Football with Guardian Caps. A Guardian Cap is a soft-shell helmet cover that is engineered to reduce the impact of helmet collisions. The 11-12-year old athletes received a Guardian Cap ahead of football season.

The donation came in advance of Academy Sports + Outdoors’ new Kyle store which is now open. Located at 5755 Kyle Pkwy, the new store hosted its grand opening celebration from September 22-24. For more information, visit

Guardian Caps are worn by 300,000+ athletes nationwide to reduce impact during practice. The caps have elastic attachment straps that stretch to fit all sizes, makes, and models of helmets. Coaches, athletic trainers, equipment managers, parents, and players are all recognizing the impact of Guardian Caps.
