USA Synchronized Swimming endorses Hammer Head® Swim Caps
MINNEAPOLIS, June 27, 2019 – USA Synchro endorsed Hammer Head Swim Caps as a first step in their movement to make their athletes safer in the water. Long practices, tight formations, strong athletes and acrobatics above and below the water all contribute to the risk for head injuries.
Seven months into his position, Adam Andrasko, CEO of USA Synchro has formulated his short list of priorities saying “As USA Synchro improves our overall athlete safety policies, head safety will be a primary focus. Hammer Head has committed to helping us with awareness and education and provides a product that reduces the chance of athletes suffering a concussion. Athlete safety is a top priority of USA Synchro and partnering with companies like Hammer Head demonstrates how serious we are about it.”
Theresa Finn, Co-Founder and CEO of Hammer Head Swim Caps says “Our mission is to give aquatic athletes, of all ages and skill levels, a cap designed to reduce the chance of accidental and repetitive injuries in the pool, that is designed for comfort and is made of tear-resistant, premium silicone - designed to outlast other caps.”
“We are extremely excited that Adam and his leadership team have named Hammer Head the official swim cap of USA Synchro. As a coach myself and from my perspective, one head injury is one too many.” says David Burns, Co-Founder and COO of Hammer Head Swim Caps.
Andrasko adds “concussions are an issue in nearly every sport. It is an unfortunate reality, but a reality that we need to be aware of, informed on and using equipment that can protect our athletes.” Hammer Head Swim Caps reduces the possibility of suffering a concussion so we owe our athletes and their parents the opportunity to learn about and purchase this equipment.
