The game has evolved. Athletes today are bigger, faster, and stronger than ever before. Now the game has to be played safer and smarter in order to insure that athletes have a better quality of life after the game. Protect Your Skull.

It's your quality of life after the game that matters most.

Protect Your Skull: Our Mission

 

The game has evolved. The number of sports related traumatic brain injuries (or TBI), including concussions, continues to grow each year. These head injuries don't just happen in major contact sports like football. Athletes and active individuals of all ages who are participating in sports like basketball, cycling, skiing, rugby, soccer, motor sports, skateboarding, and baseball are all seeing the number of these injuries increase substantially each year. Our goal as a sportswear brand is to bring a heightened level of awareness about sports related head injuries to today's athlete. The game of sports is now a game of performance, "grey matter", and awareness.

    • TBI represents almost 9% of all injuries reported in the 9 sports

    • Numbers and rates are highest in football (55,007; 0.47 per 1000 athlete exposures) and girl’s soccer (29,167; 0.36 per 1000 athlete exposures)
