HOW DO SLS EXECUTIVES FEEL ABOUT THE NEW HAMMER HEAD PARTNERSHIP?
With safety on everyone's mind, the new partnership hopes to foster “the safest summer league experience for the 3-4 million children who swim summer and recreational swimming each year,” said SLS Executive Director Mark Nedza. “The safety of children is of utmost importance to us and Hammer Head® Swim Caps provide the safest form of head protection in the market,” said Nedza. “Whether it’s in warmups or swimming backstroke, Hammer Head® helps provide more protection for kids and that is what Summer League Swimming is all about—the safety of our children.”
WHAT DOES THE HAMMER HEAD C-SUITE THINK OF THE NEW PARTNERSHIP?
Similar to SLS, Hammer Head swim cap’s main focus is underwater safety. ““Mark and his team offer a comprehensive insurance package for risk mitigation and a coach certification program to give every swimmer the best experience possible,” said Theresa Finn, Co-Founder and CEO of Hammer Head® Swim Caps. “Together we are 100% focused on elevating safety for the millions of athletes who enjoy the great tradition of summer league swimming.”
Continuing the discussion of water safety, Hammer Head Co-Founder and COO David Burns has seen his fair share of injuries. “From our perspective, every coach has seen kids collide with other swimmers in busy lanes and with the wall doing the backstroke, which is where Hammer Head comes in. Safety and confidence go hand in hand,” said Burns. “In the best interest of these athletes, it is our responsibility to maximize both.”
“Hammer Head is an absolute game-changer for swimmers of all ages and abilities. It is an essential piece of equipment for aquatic athletes and I am proud to that it is part of my legacy.”
