Hot Products Of The Week 


The BearClaw™

With concussions as a major concern for football coaches, there is a new tool available to help train linemen without the repeated blows to the head they typically suffer in practice. The BearClaw is a portable (only weight 3.5 pounds), realistic (simulates game motion, resistance and reaction time), cost-effective and safe (teaches proper blocking technique) tool. For more information on the BearClaw, click here. See it in action in the video below.
