Invest in football

Guardian Athletics is dedicated to keeping our great game of football vibrant though better safety.  A well protected athlete plays with confidence and stays on the field.  We are on the verge of great things and want you to be part of our future.

Our goal is to have Kato Collar be the next piece of mandatory technology on the football field.  Our patented Kato Collar addresses a huge gap in player safety, the rapid acceleration and abrupt deceleration of the head.  Current gear is great, we are taking it to the next level.

We have partnered with Netcapital as an investment platform to further out mission.  Not all football fanatics have a huge investment budget and that is just fine.   Click on this link and see how your passion for the game can make an impact on the field.   Join Rich Gannon, NFL veteran and broadcast analyst, and others in being part of our story.

There is a ton of information on the other side of the link but if you need more detail, please reach out.  We are football fans just like you.


Protect Your Athlete

Football parents walk a line between passion for the game and concern about injury.  We are proud to be working toward alleviating a big part of the tension on the “fear-of-injury” side of the line.  In fact, we’re certain we can help get your athlete on the field.

Safety technology has changed.

Game safety is a system.  Proper gear, coaching, technique and confidence work together to keep the game clock running.  A critical part of the system, safety gear has one glaring omission: slowing down the head after impact.  Current safety research and investment revolve around this dilemma.  Helmets and shoulder pads have long been the only weapon in this fight, and the conclusion is clear: it’s not enough.

Introducing: the next major evolution in football safety

Kato Collar fits discretely in the shoulder pads, and is both lightweight and durable.  It has been biomechanically tested to decrease the speed of the helmet after impact by up to 30%.  If the helmet slows down, the head slows down — and that means the brain slows down.  (CLICK HERE TO SEE IT IN ACTION) Keeping the brain from a violent collision inside the skull is an obvious value, but unless your athlete can have full range of motion — ensuring the player can perform at an optimum level  — the value is lost.  If it hinders play, it will stay inside the locker.  This is why Kato Collar is designed to give  full active range of motion for every player, every position, every practice, every game, and every level.

Using Kato Collar

Kato Collar is easy to install.  There are two sizes of collar and two thickness of deceleration pads to ensure full range of motion during play while still cradling the helmet upon impact.  The pads can be detached for proper fitting and easy cleaning, but in essence, Kato Collar becomes part of the should pads — once it is in position, you don’t have to think about it again.

The first thing your athlete will notice is that they’ll quickly not notice it.  Legacy collars — designed to battle chronic neck issues and block players from moving — are nothing like Kato Collar.  Thanks to its innovative design, Kato Collar can be worn by PLAYERS IN EVERY POSITION.  Much like all gear, once your athlete wears it for a while, it becomes comfortable and familiar.

Calling All Fans

We Love Football. Here at Guardian Athletics, we’ve always championed  the game, and worked passionately on behalf of a safer game.  Like many businesses around the world, we had to step back last year and let the game survive as coaches and teams were trying to simply stay afloat, stay relevant, and keep their players healthy.

And now…with great optimism, we are back!  It’s time to continue the journey and bring greater brain-safety to the  game.

We believe and the science indicates that Kato Collar decelerates the helmet, head, and brain after impact.  We believe this technology should and will be the next big breakthrough in football.  We believe that soon we will be viewed no differently than the helmet or shoulder pads.  But we need your help.

Like so many others, Guardian Athletics took a serious blow to our momentum and finances last year. To jumpstart the reset, we partnered with Net Capital to offer affordable equity investments in our company.  This raise will get us off the sideline and into the game. Check out our offering; be part of the brain-safety solution and be an owner with us. This is not a donation or go fund me style raise.  This is equity in Guardian Athletics.

We humbly ask you to consider helping us. Together, we can make this great game even better by allowing athletes to play with the confidence that comes with playing all out.  Help keep the Friday night lights burning brightly; help athletes perform on a blustery Saturday; keep Sunday in front of the TV optimistic.

As always, feel free to contact us to chat about this offering, the science behind our solution, or even about your child’s game.
