Guardian Caps are currently utilized by 200+ colleges, 1500+ high schools, and 500+ youth programs to reduce impact during practice. As of 2020, NFL testing validates the benefit of Guardian Caps and the NFL and NFLPA have decided to permit the Guardian Cap to be used by lineman in NFL practices.
The Cap augments any existing helmet to make it flexible and soft, able to more effectively manage energy and mitigate repetitive, cumulative blows.
“We train to reduce injuries, we practice smarter to reduce injuries, and we use the best technology available to us to reduce injuries. At Bergen Catholic we want to put our players in the best uniforms, the best equipment, and take every measure to limit the risks of the game. We definitely believe the Guardian Cap is one of these technological improvements.”

"People don't really appreciate what an O-lineman and a D-lineman goes through. They're facing impact - not only in a game, and they're getting 80 plays in a game - but then you see how they practice. The impact on those kids...there’s impact on every snap of every play."
Matt Campbell, Head Football Coach, Iowa State University, Iowa
“If we’re talking about putting more padding around a kid’s head on a football field, I’m all for that. I mean, it makes sense right? I have my own son in one.”

“I wanted to let you know that we had 0 concussions after our 1st order of 20. We placed 8 on the kids that had previously received a concussion and put the remaining 12 on our hardest hitters (to protect others). We will all be wearing them from now on!”
Matt Putnam, Head Football Coach, Hazel Green High School, Alabama
