LaxCon 2019 Highlight Reel
LaxCon 2019 is officially in the books! Thousands of players, coaches and fans packed the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia to see the sport’s top athletes and products and, of course, everyone throwing down their best moves.
Here are a few highlights from the action-packed weekend:
Premier Lacrosse League x STX Partnership
It’s official! This year’s going to be all about growing the game. We’re stepping into the future with the newly formed Premier Lacrosse League, all set to take pro lacrosse to the next level and create a real opportunity for athletes to play full-time. (It’s about time, right?)
Hit the field like your favorite PLL STX athlete in the STX Rival Helmet.
The partnership will showcase our full roster of athletes — a list that includes studs such as Kyle Harrison, Marcus Holman, Will Manny, and Justin Guterding — competing with STX equipment during the league’s inaugural season.
You know Guterding is excited about the PLL! Learn about the gear he'll be hitting the field with come opening weekend.
The Season 2019
Coming off a successful 2018 season with Duke, Ohio State, North Carolina and Syracuse, we’re excited to finally answer all the “Will The Season be back?”questions. Yes, The Season is back this year, with new teams, new stories and new legacies. Featuring the historic Cornell Big Red men’s team, and the hard-charging Florida Gators’ women’s team, this will be the first program of its kind to provide an inside look into how both men’s and women’s DI lacrosse programs work to make it to the National Championship.
Chapter 1 will debut on Thursday, Feb. 14., and will include a behind-the-scenes look at the Gators’ and Big Red’s fall ball season and return to the grind after winter break. Be sure to visit http://www.TheSeason2019.com and subscribe for all the latest updates and bonus content.
New World Record + New Color
Not only did we drop an icy mint colorway edition of the Ultra Power— designed to give you an edge over your opponent with the fastest shot in the game— but Nick Diegel stopped by to take the head for a spin and make his unofficial record a little more official.
Spoiler Alert! Nick broke the shot speed record in front of a HUGE crowd at 123 MPH. Mercy for the goalie trying to save that shot…
State of the Sport
Leading voices in the sport, including Michelle Tumolo and Liz Hogan, got together on Saturday for a Town Hall meeting to discuss hot topics and trends in the women’s game. Last year, the main conversation was around diversity in the sport. This year, in addition to a growing focus on diversity and inclusion, players and coaches tackled the impact of social media on the players, the overall growth of the sport, and even the recruiting process.
There’s something really incredible about seeing so many people together, united in their passion and commitment to a common thing. We’re already looking forward to being back in the City of Brotherly Love next year. Be sure to mark your calendars for January 10-12, 2020 and come check us out for new products, giveaways and, as always, a little competition.
