Unequal Technologies, a leading provider of customized, concealed sports protection, in an event with NFL MVP Kurt Warner announced plans for a new initiative called Play It Safe.
It is aimed at providing education to help make contact sports safer for amateur athletes. The announcement was made Thursday, Oct. 10.
The announcement coincided with the ribbon cutting for Unequal’s new 65,000-square-foot headquarters facility in Glen Mills, Pa.
Unequal CEO Rob Vito, Warner, and state legislators including Pennsylvania Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi and Rep. Stephen Barrar highlighted the importance of disseminating key information to parents, coaches, trainers and athletes about the “three T’s”: training, technique and technology, said the company.
Unequal makes supplemental padding for the head, body and feet available to players, parents, coaches and trainers. The Play It Safe program takes proper protection a step further by advocating for specific training and techniques to optimize safe competition in sports of all levels.
A balance of different training methods is recommended through Play It Safe, including but not limited to strength training, speed work, plyometric exercises and sports-specific training.
