Ever tumble onto the mat or roll out on the field? Been hit by a ball in the back of the head? We're all taught how to fall, how to get out of the way and how to play safe. Protecting your head in a fall is not always second nature. Wearing Forcefield Protective Headgear™ while participating in sports at or after school shows you've thought about the risks associated with your sport and are taking steps to protect yourself.
The patented design of the product has been engineered to absorb and spread out the force of an impact without detracting from any of the techniques involved in playing a sport. The only difference, which is significant, is that if you hit your head, you experience substantially less impact force to the brain.
Medical professionals agree that the developing brain of a child is at greatest risk. For just that reason, Forcefield Protective Headgear™ is listed by the National Federation of High Schools in the United States. The only protective headgear designed for the sport of basketball. Also used in soccer, volleyball, smashball, gymnasics, cheerleading, as well as some track and field events.
An ideal fundraiser for the student council, the Forcefield Protective Headgear™ fundraising kit includes a forcefield mascot, a supply of 7 informational handouts including "pocket SCAT5 concussion detection tool1", "can't stop the forcefield" game, win-a-free-ULTRA contest and is 100% fun and free to run.
