The Flagship Program
Football is a game that has been passed down through generations and has built tight communities of athletes, coaches and millions of fans around the world. There is no better time than now for advancing the innovations in safety equipment for players in football and other high-impact sports.
As a Guardian Athletics Flagship School, your team will help lead the way to better protection for your athletes on the field.
By joining, your program will receive:
- Kato Collars for at least 50 percent of your players at a deep promotion on our rental program: $20 per collar during your first year as a Flagship School.
- One-on-one time and a special fitting session with our founder, Jeff Chambers, a certified athletic trainer with 35+ years of experience. Jeff invented Kato Collar after one of his college football players left the game he loved due to repeated burner-stinger injuries.
- A referral bonus for you program for qualified leads. You simply introduce us to your peers and we do the rest. Each school that rents at least 25 collars means an additional $5 per collar discount. Five referrals equals a cost free season!
- Additional publicity for your football teams’ commitment to player safety via our website, social media and public relations outreach.

- Feature your team’s logo on GuardianAthletics.com
