Gamebreaker's signature headgear is a soft-shelled, PEVA rubber foam product with adjustable laces in the back. Providing complete peripheral vision and optimal protection and comfort, the headgear is ideal for any sport or practice scenario. Gamebreaker has increasingly become the go-to solution for football at all competition levels, as athletic associations have placed limits on the time athletes can spend in full padding.  In addition, Gamebreaker is being mandated by 7 on 7 leagues across the country and is aiding in the rapid growth of 7 on 7.

Today, Gamebreaker headgear is worn by thousands of people participating in youth, high school, collegiate, community and amateur sports associations across the country. The company's partners and clients include many of the country's leading brands and leagues.

According to a recent blog in The New York Times, children's and teenager's brains are uniquely vulnerable to concussions, which are more accurately known as mild traumatic brain injuries. Among children aged 8 to 13, sports-related concussions account for more than half of all ER visits. More troublingly, one concussion increases the odds of experience a second, and so on in an escalating fashion. However, the cognitive, emotional and social benefits of athletic participation are well documented, so abandoning youth sports altogether is neither practical nor wise.

Gamebreaker adds a layer of safety in all sports where collisions and contact is a possibility. The headgear enables young athletes to experience the benefits of competition, while parents and coaches can be a little less concerned about head injuries. The headgear is also comfortable and form-fitting, which can help ensure that athletes wear it properly. 

In addition to its signature protective headgear, Gamebreaker also offers a line of antibacterial sprays and detergents in various sizes.
