Sports Safety Initiative

Educate the public about protective helmet technology immediately available to contact sport athletes.

Why Is It Important?

Every day a new story comes out in the media about the short and long term effects of head injury and brain trauma. The helmet wearing athlete spans over 270 million people worldwide across multiple contact sports ranging from football, biking, skateboarding to ice hockey.

Inform the public of the ability to reduce head trauma by using a patented shell that is an “add on” to new or existing helmets. It utilizes special material to reduce the risk of injury due to blunt force trauma.

More About Our Mission

The Emerald Foundation and Defend Your Head have joined forces to spread the word about the proprietary protective helmet technology available to helmet wearing athletes. In an effort to reduce head trauma for all contact sports, our goal is to educate and provide access to all high school and college athletes this soft shell technology adaptable to new and existing helmets.
