Gait Lacrosse is teaming up with the Rumble in Richmond as the title sponsor serving more than 2,000 players, coaches and fans with its product line-up, including lacrosse sticks, heads, protective padding, goalie gear and accessories.
The partnership with Gait Lacrosse positions our athletes with the very best gear in the industry, said Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports Enterprises. Were proud to have Gait Lacrosse team up with our tournament as they have been a tremendous partner in developing the game at the youth level.
Gait Lacrosse will sign at least three players competing in the tournament to its Gait Elite Program, a core group of player-ambassadors who will work closely with Gait Lacrosse product engineers to test prototypes and receive new product offerings before they are available to the public. The players will also have access to the companys Sci-Fly Technology, radar guns combined with other specialized measurement tools to gauge speed, accuracy and fit.
The Gait Elite Program is a unique opportunity to gain athletes feedback to power the development of future innovation, said Ryan Harrington, business director for Gait Lacrosse. We look forward to watching some of the top young athletes in the country compete at an elite level at the Rumble in Richmond tournament.
The Rumble in Richmond will be held November 1 and 2 in Richmond, Virginia and feature top teams from around the country in 6 boys divisions: U11, U13, U15 (No high school players), Junior Varsity, Varsity and Varsity-Elite. For more details on the tournament, please visit www.rumblelax.com.
As one of the oldest sporting goods manufacturers in the U.S. dating back to the 1800s, the makers of Gait Lacrosse knows and believes in innovation, performance and integrity. In the 1980s, known as K2, the company began manufacturing lacrosse gear and would soon develop lacrosse sticks using the same alloys found in softball bats. Innovation continued in the 90s when the company teamed up with legendary player, Paul Gait, who directed the organization towards a pure performance orientation and its high quality product line available today.
