SAFR SPORTS ANNOUNCED AS PROUD SPONSOR OF THE DCSAA
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The District of Columbia State Athletic Association is pleased to announce SAFR Sports as a proud sponsor of the DCSAA. Through the partnership, SAFR Sports will support the mission of the DCSAA.
“We are excited to begin this great partnership with SAFR Sports,” said Kenneth Owens, Executive Director of the District of Columbia State Athletic Association. “We appreciate this commitment to high school athletics and look forward to working together.”
SAFR Sports, a safety innovation company, is proud to partner with the DCSAA to make student-athletes safer. SAFR’s ProTech helmet cover, worn by nearly 300 football teams and 10,000 student-athletes, is scientifically proven to reduce concussive impacts by as much as 72%.
“At SAFR, we are continually pursuing new ways to improve sports safety through science, and our partnership with DCSAA perfectly fits our mission to make contact sports safer,” said SAFR Sports’ co-founder John Ziglinski. “We know that in the United States alone, nearly 4 million sports-related concussions occur annually. While you can replace a knee or a hip, you can’t replace a brain,” added SAFR co-founder John Loughery.
