Altamont, N.Y. (August 12, 2020) – Gait Lacrosse is proud to announce a multi-year partnership with the University of Maryland Women’s Lacrosse program beginning with the 2020-21 season.
The agreement will provide 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.
“I could not be happier for Maryland Women’s Lacrosse to work with Gait Lacrosse. They are innovators of the game and of the equipment we have used at Maryland to win championships,” said Maryland women’s lacrosse coach Cathy Reese. “The Gait product line of sticks provides unique advantages for our players to perform at their best on the field. The Gait’s have been part of our historic success at Maryland and I believe they will be part of our future success.”
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 equipment (heads, handles, gloves and eyewear) and men’s lacrosse heads, handles and gloves.
“We are very excited and grateful to be teaming up with the University of Maryland’s Women’s Lacrosse team. My brother, myself and our employees have strong ties to coach Reese and the program and we are looking forward to the next evolution of our relationship,” said Gait Lacrosse co-owner Paul Gait. “We want to put our products in the hands of the best and this program has proven they are a great choice by their dominance over the last decade.”
The University of Maryland joins the Naval Academy and the University of Louisville women’s lacrosse programs as part of the Gait Family.
