Rocksolid partners with the Flag Football World Championship Tour to promote Youth Safety
The Flag Football World Championship Tour hosts some of the largest flag football tournament events in the world, and Rocksolid has partnered with their flagship event Battle Orlando to provide soft-shell helmets at a reduced price for all participants! All youth divisions will be required to wear Rocksolid soft-shell helmets while playing, a move the FFWCT hopes will ensure added protection for it’s players after seeing how even in a non-contact sport, head injuries, cuts and contusions can still occur without proper headgear.
About Battle Orlando

Having grown up in the game of football, CEO and former NFL linebacker Joey LaRocque, along with COO Caleb Hanie, a 6 year NFL veteran quarterback, made it their mission to grow and protect the game by filling a void in player protection. Teaming up with other professional athletes, engineers, and top designers, the Rocksolid RS1 soft-shell helmet was created; the WORLD’S FIRST soft-shell helmet specifically designed for football. Since then, they’ve also launched their second generation helmet called the RS2, along with their soft-shell shoulder pad the RSS, to put out a full line of protection gear. The hard work paid off and resulted in protecting over 45,000 athletes, 500 high school programs, hundreds of flag leagues, and numerous camps and 7 on 7 tournaments being protected to date! Not to mention the 7 NFL teams and 35 D1 programs.
As part of the partnership, Rocksolid will be offering a special discounted price to all FFWCT players and teams on their RS2 soft-shell helmet available from our store in the next week, and will also have the ability to rent a refurbished RS1 model helmet on-site at the event in May for a small deposit!
