Atlanta Swimming Association (ASA) announced today the introduction of Hammer Head Swim Caps to member teams for the 2020 season and beyond. The decision was made thanks to revolutionary benefits Hammer Head swim caps offer all swimmers.
Hammer Head caps will be made available to more than 120 ASA neighborhood swim teams across five metro Atlanta counties – one of the largest Summer League Swimming programs in the country. Caps will be available in multiple colors and customizable.
“Summer League Swimming is all about community, water safety and fun,” says Franke Marsden, ASA League Coordinator. “Too often water safety is focused on learning to swim, but not about protection for ongoing safety. Hammer Head has developed an incredible product that increases safety during practice, meet warm-ups and during races.”
“Every Hammer Head swim cap features a proprietary layer of HIT™ protective material to absorb the shock from head strikes in the pool. Each cap also features zero wrinkles for reduced drag and can be worn under competition or practice caps” says Theresa Finn, co-founder and CEO of Hammer Head.
“ASA always puts their swimmers’ well-being first,” says David Burns, co-founder and chief operating officer, Hammer Head. “So we’re delighted to be able to offer their athletes, swim parents and coaches this new technology that really brings advantages in safety, speed and comfort.”
“A summer league team may have 300+ swimmers, often with more than ten per lane for warm ups or practices,” says Mark Nedza of Summer League Swimming, LLC. “That itself shows just how easy it is for a swimmer to take contact from another swimmer, wall or lane line. Hammer Head brings safety to the forefront without compromising on the swimmer’s experience.”
“We will soon all look back incredulously that athletes ever swam without head protection of this kind.”
