ISCA & HAMMER HEAD® TEAM UP TO PROMOTE HEAD SAFETY
HOW ARE ISCA & HAMMER HEAD® PROMOTING HEAD SAFETY
The swim universe isn’t every swim school or swim team for themselves. Thankfully, there is an organization that unifies all swimmers. This organization, the International Swim Coaches Association (ISCA), provides swimming coaches and teachers with an exceptional, science-based education while fostering an international network of professionals who will define the future of swimming.
WHAT IS HAMMER HEAD® DOING WITH ISAC
Since the ISAC mission is geared towards the well-being of swimmers everywhere, Hammer Head® had no hesitation in producing a partnership with the swimming organization. Doug Fonder, Founder and Executive Director at ISCA shared "we are extremely proud to partner with Hammer Head® because safety and the well-being of swimmers, in and out of the pool, is one of our top priorities."
HOW DOES HAMMER HEAD® FIT WITH THE ISAC MISSION
In terms of providing science-based education for the future of swimming, Hammer Head® fits perfectly within the ISAC mission. The unique design of the Hammer Head® swim cap may have the answer to head injuries in the swimming pool and open water alike. The Hammer Head® is the world's only protective swim cap with a patented layer inside of, what otherwise feels like, swim caps you grew up with. Fonder adds "The protective cushion built into the Hammer Head caps should be required equipment for every swimmer around the world. Not only that, the Hammer Head cap, extensively tested by Dr. Gary Hall, Sr. and The Race Club, came out to be the fastest cap on the market. Combining safety and speed is something every coach wants their swimmers to have."
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT HAMMER HEAD® SWIMMING CAPS
After being supported by multiple Olympic gold medalists, people have seen the difference Hammer Head® swim cap technology brings to the world of swimming. The Hammer Head is designed with no wrinkles and built for racing. Our patented technology reduces collision impact on top of the head by 50% compared to other swim caps. On top of this, Hammar Head® is tear-resistant and made with premium silicone that is designed to outlast other caps. Its’ honeycomb impact technology is a new innovation in the pool that is making the difference swimmers need.
HOW WERE HAMMER HEAD® SWIM CAPS CREATED FOR THE SWIMMING POOL
David Burns, co-founder and COO at Hammer Head Swim Caps, says he and his co-founder and CEO, Theresa Finn, got the idea for Hammer Head when he was coaching a backstroke swim clinic when two kids – his eight-year-old daughter and a 14-year old swimmer – individually hit their heads on the pool wall while finishing. After helping the kids, David remarked that swimmers should have helmets – and the idea for the Hammer Head swim cap was born. Finn continues "collisions occur at the pool wall, but even more frequently head-to-head with other swimmers in a busy practice or warm-up lanes. Swimmers need to look out for themselves and their noggin....the Hammer Head is designed to do just that."
WHAT DOES HAMMER HEAD® HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH ISAC
Fonder explains that "together, we will be focused on member education regarding head safety. With this revolutionary new technology for aquatic athletes, we will reduce the number of injuries, boost the confidence of swimmers who fear hitting the wall or other swimmers and help them drop time in competitions."
