LOUISVILLE WOMEN’S LACROSSE PARTNERS IN MULTI-YEAR DEAL WITH GAIT
Altamont, N.Y. (August 4, 2020) — Gait Lacrosse is proud to announce a multi-year partnership with the University of Louisville Women’s Lacrosse program. The Cardinals will take the field in the spring of 2021 using the latest in Gait Lacrosse equipment.
The agreement provides a full suite of Gait Lacrosse hard goods to the NCAA Division 1 student-athletes for the opportunity to utilize the brand and to continue to progress their skills.
“Knowing the innovations that Paul and Gary have brought to the game, it was an easy decision to partner with Gait Lacrosse for our equipment needs,” said head coach Scott Teeter. “Competing at the highest level in the ACC requires equipment that is performance-driven and fits the needs of our players. Gait provided that to us in our abbreviated season last year and we can’t wait to get back on the field to compete with Gait sticks this upcoming season.”
Gait Lacrosse, a collaboration between lacrosse legends and brothers, Gary and Paul Gait, launched last fall. The company has a full line of women’s lacrosse gear, including heads, handles, gloves and eyewear, and men’s lacrosse heads, handles and gloves.
“I would like to thank Coach Teeter and the Louisville program who took a giant leap of faith to become our initial collegiate partner. This has proven to be an invaluable relationship during our product development phase of the business,” said Gait Lacrosse co-owner Paul Gait. “Their support and confidence in the product has been a tremendous help during the development of our women’s technology. The on-field testing, and feedback has allowed us to prove our concepts and create the most innovative lacrosse sticks in the game.”
University of Louisville women’s lacrosse is the first program to sign on as part of the Gait Family.
