Carlsbad, Calif. (March 15, 2021) — SKLZ, the leader in premium sports training equipment and fitness gear, debuts two new lacrosse training products—the Quickster Lacrosse Goal and the Universal Shooting Targets—to establish the SKLZ lacrosse category. The portable and low-cost Quickster Lacrosse Goal and the easy-to-use Universal Shooting Targets are now available at retailers and online at SKLZ.com.
SKLZ has always been focused on the athlete, creating training equipment and innovative products that help improve specific skills and techniques for baseball, softball, soccer, football, basketball, golf and fitness. Now, with the creation of the lacrosse category, SKLZ continues to expand their product offerings to help more athletes train for and excel at their sport. According to a study conducted by the NCAA in 2018, lacrosse is the fastest growing collegiate sport over the past 15 years. With formal practices disrupted and more athletes looking to improve their training at home, SKLZ has developed new lacrosse products to help athletes improve their performance with premium, durable, portable training solutions.
The SKLZ Quickster Lacrosse Goal is an essential training product for athletes looking for a portable and affordable option for backyard and on-the-go practices. The Quickster Lacrosse Goal is a great alternative to bulky metal goals that are hard to set up and store. Featuring a regulation size of 6’ x 6’, the lacrosse goal is ideal for both shooting drills and scrimmage play. The Tension-Tite™ frame technology, quick connect tubing and Quickclip attachments allow for easy setup and breakdown. The lightweight and portable design is great for training anywhere, and the goal is built with durable netting and webbing to withstand multiple seasons’ worth of training. The Quickster Lacrosse goal comes with ground stakes and a carry bag are included, and retails for $149.99.
The SKLZ Universal Shooting Targets help athletes improve shot accuracy by building a visual focus, and can be placed anywhere on the frame of a metal goal. They are durable and easy to use, giving athletes a better option than hanging shirts or bags in the corner of their goal. The durable, flexible composite material is optimal for both lacrosse and hockey. The square design allows targets to sit flush and be positioned in the corners of the goal – the optimal shooting zones. The quick attachments allow for multiple shot locations. The Universal Shooting Targets are available in a 2-pack, and retail for $39.99.
The new lacrosse training products launch March 15 at Dick’s Sporting Goods and online at sklz.implus.com.
