Gladiator Lacrosse® was founded in 2012 by 13 year old entrepreneur and lacrosse player, Rachel Zietz.

The idea for Gladiator Lacrosse came from Rachel’s disappointment with the quality, cost and lack of selection of current product offerings.  Like every player wishing to improve his or her game, Rachel’s coaches advised her to play “wall ball” and practice her shot as much as possible.  However, the quality of the products she purchased for use in the backyard would not hold up to the weather outdoors, or were too expensive.

Participating in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy Program (co-sponsored by Florida Atlantic University and Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce) gave Rachel the idea to start a business which would provide high-quality lacrosse equipment at an affordable price; thus Gladiator Lacrosse was born.
