GLEN MILLS, Pa., Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In its ongoing effort to educate soccer players, parents and coaches and to help reduce risk inherent in the sport, the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches (TASCO) has selected the Unequal Halo™ as its Official Protective Headgear.
"TASCO is excited to join Unequal in this partnership, as we believe coaches should place an absolute premium on the safety of their players," explains Austin Guest, vice president of TASCO. "It's a positive step in our continued efforts to be the leader among high school soccer organizations nationwide."
The Unequal Halo™ is a headband with a military grade composite of Kevlar® and Accelleron® layered inside. The Halo offers virtually unmatched ability to absorb and disperse high impact energy while reducing acceleration. In ASTM certification testing at an independent lab, the Halo reduced peak g-force acceleration significantly, compared to no head protection. Studies show, reducing acceleration predicts a lower risk of injury. Barely 10mm thin, it contours to any players' head while looking just like a headband.
"Thousands of athletes from the pros to youth leagues already use Unequal in soccer, football, baseball, hockey, lacrosse and action sports," says Jim Caldwell, executive vice president of Unequal. "We commend TASCO for understanding their role in educating coaches on the issue of head injuries and providing them information on how to better protect their players."
