Gladiator Lacrosse, LLC Unveils The Casey Powell Signature Collection, Its Superior Product Line of Practice Equipment
The highly anticipated Casey Powell Product Line maintains the brand’s dedication to producing the highest quality performance practice equipment by combining professional-grade and premium materials.
Gladiator Lacrosse and Casey Powell, currently a major league player for the Florida Launch, announce the successful release of their latest high-caliber product line: The Casey Powell Signature Collection. The all-new Casey Powell Signature Edition Lacrosse Goal and Casey Powell Signature Edition Wall Rebounder not only break training barriers for their first-of-its-kind performance and elegant design features, but also draw inspirational cues from the legacy of Casey Powell.
The Casey Powell Signature Collection is designed to fit the needs of today’s elite lacrosse athletes with never before used black-on-black textiles and premium elements, making the collection one of the top performing practice equipment offered today. The Casey Powell Signature Edition Lacrosse Rebounder is a durable 4’ x 3’ rebounder designed for beginners-to-advanced players and comes complete with an exclusive Casey Powell Training Guide to help players practice and improve their lacrosse skills. The Casey Powell Signature Edition Lacrosse Goal is composed of a premium 6mm braided polyester professional-grade net designed with a sturdy snap-piece frame and a lacing cord made for easy assembly. Both Signature Collection items include a Casey Powell Training Guide to maximize practice sessions with the use of the equipment. “The emphasis for the training guides were to remind players that a conditioned lacrosse athlete obtains skillfulness through dedicated practice sessions,” said Casey Powell. “The handbook is a reflection of my own personal training techniques that have helped my aiming precision and perfected my shots.”
The international lacrosse icon Casey Powell and the CEO of Gladiator Lacrosse wanted to create industry-leading practice equipment that encourages today’s athletes to rethink performance and emphasize the importance of training with durable, professional-grade equipment. “The Casey Powell Collection continues the tradition of setting the benchmark for superior design and performance,” said Rachel Zietz, CEO and Founder of Gladiator Lacrosse. “As a growing brand, Casey Powell and I recognized that lacrosse athletes want and need equipment that is truly an extension of their sophisticated style, without affecting the quality and overall product performance.”
For Gladiator Lacrosse, continuing to set a new standard for performance innovation is one of the results of working alongside brand ambassador Casey Powell. Casey Powell Signature Edition products are revolutionizing the lacrosse market, and players around the world are now able to purchase this exclusive equipment online.
Teenage entrepreneur Rachel Zietz pitched her million-dollar company Gladiator Lacrosse to the millionaires and billionaires of “Shark Tank” nearly a year ago, and she will finally appear on the hit TV show May 13, the South Florida Business Journal has learned.
Zietz’s pitch was filmed in June, but her family was recently notified that she would appear on the 22nd episode of the seventh season of the reality show. There were no guarantees the episode would air, said her fatherSam Zietz, even though his daughter was standing in front of dozens of cameras while she talked about her company to the “Shark Tank” stars.
“We didn’t know for sure she’d be on,” said Sam, who is also CEO of Boca Raton-based TouchSuite. “I told her you’ll never have as much pressure walking into a business meeting as you did today.”
Rachel founded Gladiator Lacrosse in 2012 when she was 13 years old. An avid lacrosse player, she knew she needed better equipment, and would eventually roll out her own line of lacrosse equipment and accessories, including rebounders and practice goals for players to use in their backyards.
“I definitely didn’t think it would be as big as it is,” Rachel said in a 2015 interview with the South Florida Business Journal.
Since launching her company, Rachel has garnered attention from major business news outlets including the The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She was also named a finalist for the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Entrepreneur Award of young professionals.
This year, Gladiator Lacrosse is projected to reach $2 million in sales, Sam told the Business Journal. Rachel attends high school in Fort Lauderdale.
