For the players.
By the players.

The Problem


As lacrosse has grown in popularity, the technology hasn’t grown with the sport

There are several problems within lacrosse and the larger sports industry, which we have set out to solve. We started with a simple goal in 2016—to make a better ball. Based on our internal research, all balls were being made the same way and the quality was seriously lacking.  Next, we set out to create quality goal frames, nets and lacrosse sticks with a lifetime warranty, which were lacking from the market.


Now we’re applying our proven problem-solving approach to a bigger challenge facing team sports. Ordering custom uniforms and apparel is more difficult and time-consuming than it needs to be. This creates headaches not only for parents and players, but also program directors. Rather than spending more time coaching kids on the field, program directors lose valuable time to the current archaic process for outfitting their teams and families.

We believe ordering custom uniforms and fan gear should be made as fast and easy as placing an order with Amazon.

The Solution


The next generation of lacrosse gear for a better player experience

All of our apparel is made right here in the US and we offer the fastest turn around times on custom apparel in all of sports with our 7, 14, and 21-day rush options and the only 100% replacement guarantee! 


From custom fan gear to uniforms, our online team stores are customized with the widest selection of apparel across all team sports. We set them up free of charge to our partner programs! Gone are the days of waiting for up to two months for custom uniforms that show up with sizing, number, or color errors. Our API integrations streamline the information transfer from the time the order is placed and its production at the factory to its shipment directly to the player or parents home.


Signature Lacrosse created the first premium lacrosse ball, which spun into a new category in the sport. Within less than five years, our ball has become the official ball of the NLL, WPLL, MLL, CLL, and is used by over 300 college lacrosse programs.  We solved the problem of stringing a net to a goal frame and, shortly after, followed it with the first-lifetime warranty on pro-strung lacrosse sticks.  Now, we are expanding beyond problem-solving for lacrosse products to tackle a broader pain point in the sports market—being able to order team apparel in a way that is easy, fast, and reliable.

With an amazing team of experts and a passionate community of clients, we are ready to take Signature Lacrosse to the next level and would like to invite you to join us!

Our Traction


Over 8 million in sales with 74% avg year-over-year growth

Signature Lacrosse has achieved over $8 million in lifetime sales, and we have over 2,000 team clients, 30,000+ consumer clients and more than 50,000 social media followers. Over the last four years, we have averaged over 74% year over year growth. Our partners include the sport’s top professional leagues such as NLL, WPLL, MLL, and CLA. We now have an incredible advisory board of sports market leaders guiding us along our journey and we have secured multiple patents and trademarks for our brand. With an amazing team of experts and a passionate community of clients, we are ready to take Signature Lacrosse to the next level and would like to invite you to join us!

The Market


118 billion dollar market

The global sports apparel and equipment market is valued at 118 Billion  and includes custom team sports apparel, and hard goods for all sports. As we scale our company, we plan to grow into the broader athletic leisure apparel market.

What We Do


Trusted quality lacrosse gear with exceptional service

At Signature Lacrosse, we help passionate directors, coaches and players outfit their teams with the best gear so they can spend more time on fields doing what they love, without compromising quality or service. We do this by offering the first 24/7/365 team stores with the highest quality equipment, fully sublimated uniforms and the best seasonal collection of custom fan gear for the families in youth sports programs. We also offer all of the Signature Premium hard goods, such as our game changing Signature Premium Balls, our patented Quick Connect Goals, and our revolutionary pro-strung sticks backed by the first lifetime warranty in the sport. All of this is drop shipped right to the player’s or parent’s door, saving program directors time, money and headaches!  

The Business Model


We sell our products through our website, Amazon and Signature Partner Program Team Stores

Our premium products can be found at signaturelacrosse.com and third-party marketplaces such as Amazon. We also have a Signature Partner Program Team Store model in place for our Team Clients throughout North America. This program creates a flywheel of ongoing momentum and growth by driving more parent/player traffic to our site, fueling our remarketing engine, and further building our community.  Also, the Signature Partner Program gives us a source for authentic feedback to help further innovate new problem-solving products, which in turn allows us to expand into other sports. 


Our average gross margins for 2020 so far have been more than 40%.


How We Are Different


Our Team Store Partner Program has enabled us to grow in a way that other brands haven’t

Signature Lacrosse was built for the players, by the players. Our Signature Partner Program Team Stores give us some unique advantages in the sports industry. These include durable data and distribution advantage in the consumer market and IP on all of our problem-solving hard good product lines. We also created a loyal client base of die-hard passionate lacrosse players, coaches and parents who share our same mission—to grow the game!

The Vision


Major expansion of our Signature Partner Program will fuel company growth

 We’ll continue to grow by providing our Signature Partner Program team store solution to youth sports markets starting with lacrosse and then expanding  to basketball, soccer, baseball, football, volleyball, golf and more. During this expansion, we are rebranding from Signature Lacrosse to Signature Athletics to represent our evolution into the greater team sports industry. We plan to grow by utilizing our remarketing efforts with parents and players within the partner programs and our proprietary process for bringing new problem-solving products to market. Specifically, we have a network of factories for all facets of manufacturing hard goods for the sports market including: cut and sew, plastic and rubber injection, composite and metal fabrication, as well as a team of contractors with experience in all sporting goods products, plus a staff experienced  in CAD work. 


In 2023, we aim to have over 100 Teams as Signature Partner Programs.  

The numbers above reflect company goals for the next 5 years. Actual results not guaranteed .

Our Team


A wide array of expertise with a shared passion for the game

Our team is made up of players, coaches and parents of players working together to solve problems in youth sports  to further grow the sports and make them more available to the world. Furthermore, our team members boast a wide array of expertise from sourcing electronics for companies like Comp USA and sporting goods products for companies like Titleist and UA in Taiwan for 30 years and starting the Major League Soccer to playing lacrosse at the highest levels and coaching/running youth sport programs for decades. We are living and breathing the problems we are solving for ourselves and the greater sports markets. Our achievements are a result of the values we hold as a company and our passion for sports. 

Why Invest


Be a part of our future!

We are passionate about building a company for the players, by the players and while we had verbal offers from VC’s and PE firms around the country, to us it made a lot more sense to sell equity to the same community that is helping us achieve our mission rather than some suits that may have a different vision or different priorities. We are on a mission to grow the game, and our work reflects that mission and always will.

Product Market Fit: Signature Ships +1,000 Uniforms to Families Across the Country in First 2 Months of Launching the Team Stores!

21 days ago

We are excited to announce a major milestone, we shipped our one thousandth uniform just 8 weeks after launching the new Team Store model. 


During that time, we were able to gather some early data to test against our assumptions. What we found is really exciting! We anticipated capturing $140/player per year in sales. This breaks down into 3 main areas, uniform, hard goods, and custom fan gear. 


The uniform assumption has proved out at 100% of expectations. And whats really interesting is the hard goods and custom fan gear assumptions are on track for between 4-6x our original expectation. This means we may see the average per player per year sales, a leading indicator of the value of one of our 3 year agreements with a youth or travel program, skyrocket north of $200 per player. 


We are really excited by this progress but whats got our team most excited is our continued success with customer service, through the launch, and inevitable hick ups of the new Team Store program, our team has been able to maintain a 4.8/5 star rating and is coming up on 2k reviews!

Newly Launched Signature Team Stores Already Sign 13 Lacrosse Programs!

Thank you to our early investors for joining the Signature Team! We are pumped to have you onboard and excited to begin sharing updates with you. 


First things first, we’re excited to announce after launching our Signature Partner Team Store solution just eight weeks ago, we’ve already signed 13 lacrosse programs. That’s over 30% of the way towards our 2021 goal!


These 13 youth recreational and travel lacrosse programs span across the East Coast of the United States—from Florida to Delaware. They include: Lacrosse Club Orlando, Sandsharks Lacrosse, Pride Lacrosse, Coyotes Youth Lacrosse, Palms LC, Lakeshore Lacrosse, Wolves LC, Delaware Lacrosse League, Swarm LC, Yellow Jackets LC, Nantucket Student Lacrosse, HGR Lacrosse and Piatelli Lacrosse.


To accommodate this demand and free up our sales team to focus on signing more partner programs, we’re bringing a Director of Operations onboard ahead of schedule! 


Each lacrosse program has signed a three-year agreement with Signature which gives their players and families year-round access to their program’s 24/7 team store for custom fan gear, fully sublimated uniforms and all of our premium hard goods. 


Stay tuned for more exclusive Signature company updates!
