Kid-Made Comfort

Little Leaguer Kyler Russell knocked one out of the park with the youth athletic cup he created for boys like him. Comfy Cup provides light protection in a comfortable—and kid-friendly—design. Unlike the typical hard plastic versions, Comfy Cup is soft and flexible. It’s molded from pliable foam that contours to the body, and has a breathable mesh lining. Its scaled-down size and light impact protection make it the perfect first athletic cup for school-aged kids just getting started with contact sports. Kyler loved baseball, but hated the mandatory cup he had to wear. His parents encouraged him to channel his complaints into creating an alternative. With some help from Mom and Dad, and after testing prototypes out on his teammates, Kyler created this smarter, softer solution.

    I am so impressed with your initiative to tackle such a potentially 'awkward' but necessary need for young boys starting contact sports. Do the officials approve this alternative or are they only allowed during practices??

    @Shanna This is a great question. The Comfy Cup™ was designed to protect entry-level players who refuse to wear any cup at all due to discomfort. We recommend checking with your league, but as far as we know, the Comfy Cup™ provides adequate protection for boys ages 7-11 years old just getting started in contact sports.
