ABOUT GUARDIAN ATHLETICS
Our passion was ignited when we realized that the industry simply isn’t moving fast enough. We couldn’t wait for a revolution, so we decided to start our own. With outside pressure from medical professionals and parents, football will only survive if we make strides in protecting our players, which is exactly what we’re doing.
One airbag won’t save your life in a car crash, just like a helmet alone won’t prevent an injury. Kato Collar is a part of a system that works towards optimal protection. Through gear, training, and innovative products, we build confidence in the game and start to prevent head and neck injuries.
While still too heavy, helmets protect the skull and are crucial in the protection of a player. The collar works in conjunction to improve protection.
There are programs, such as Head’s Up, that educate players on a safer way to tackle. When the collar is integrated, these training practices solidify player safety.
Rapid acceleration and deceleration of the skull is a real threat to player safety, and why we invented the collar. We work hard to be an educational source for the football community.
YOU SPOKE. WE LISTENED.
Last season you told us that we need to bring the collar to players with additional options that fit your team’s budget. We’ve launched our rental program to help you outfit your players with the latest in innovative gear.
With packs starting at 25 collars, we’ve got options for you to outfit every player, every position.
