It’s not a matter of if your swimmer will hit their head – it’s when
Whether you coach an individual swimmer, team or countless kids at swim schools, you’ll have seen this a hundred times or more. A swimmer’s goggles fog up, they’re blinded by the sun, they forget to count from the flags and before you know it they’ve hit the wall or others around them. For youngsters that means tears and for any swimmer it can spell injury.
Cumulative bumps on the head are serious. They can lead to lifelong problems. The occasional bumping of two heads together in the pool, or the child who runs into the wall or hits the top of their head on a stair rail may seem minor but it’s not. When a child hits their head they begin to not want to swim the backstroke, butterfly or go in the water again and it diminishes their confidence for trying new things.
Hammer Head™ swim caps help to keep children and adults confident in the water so they can continue to enjoy and participate in their sport and develop an undeterred, lifelong love of swimming.
