Adam suffered a brain hemorrhage and a concussion during a mid-air collision with another player’s hip bone. After months of memory rehabilitation, physical therapy, and hundreds of soccer games on television, Adam returned to the field wearing the Full90 headguard. "When I get out there on that field, everything - the outside world - is gone," Adam said. "And it's 90 minutes of the best thing ever."
I have always been really encouraged with the new safety equipment being developed in sports. Then we had a near fatality during a soccer game resulting from a head collision which resulted in the player's heart stopping. He was revived by his father on the field. After this incident, I researched and found the Full90 product. The next year I made it compulsory for my Varsity and Junior Varsity players to wear the Full90 headgear. It did not make sense to me that shin guards that protect your leg are required by all level of soccer yet we do not protect our most valuable part of our body. I have been contacted by many people across America with a story about their child getting a head injury, and they commend my team for being role models. This is the future of soccer. I would highly recommend the Full 90 product to any level of soccer - especially all youth divisions. Our children are our future and we need to protect their well being.
I have been wearing the Full90 headgear since my favorite coach, Jim Evans told me to almost 3 years ago. Two other girls on my ODP team are now wearing Full90. I've been hit in the head all over and have had no bleeding or bruises. That's why Full90 is part of my uniform.-Julia was featured in "Sports Illustrated Kids" wearing her Full90 Headguard.
These players are believers in safety and headgear.Share your Story »
