  • Nutshellz® Youth Level 1 groin protectors combine ultimate comfort with ultimate strength. Made with the world’s strongest bullet resistant materials, and engineered with a unique ergonomic design, the Level 1 Youth is the most elite cup for the serious Youth athlete.

    The cups are hand-made to the highest standards and specifications in the United States.

  • If you are a parent of a youth male athlete that plays in a high level sport then you need to level up to a Nutshellz Groin Protector. A tramatic blow to the testicles can cause severe injury and possibly require surgical intervention and in some instances removal of a testicle or testicles. If your son damages or looses one or both of his testicles from a severe tramatic injury there is a good chance that he will never be able to play his sport at a high level again. Testosterone production could  be lowered or even worse shut down all the way.  Grand children could be out of the picture - dont chance that,  get Nutshellz.
