    I like lacrosse because it is neither a guy sport or a girl sport. It is not stereotyped towards either. Also it’s really fun.

    Ok, so if any of you play lacrosse maybe you will have a different opinion on this video. Honestly, her equipment is not different than ANY OTHER EQUIPMENT out there for lacrosse. There are already goals, ball backs/re bounders that are the exact same as her that you can buy at dicks. I am confused because she claimed that there was a need for equipment and that she was unsatisfied and yet she did not produce innovative technology. At least be more creative with an idea, she just has Casey Powells "signature" on her equipment but guess what, that does not affect HOW YOU USE THE EQUIPMENT ITSELF. Unpopular yet critical thinking opinion :) YA WELC. On a side note, I do appreciate her giving back to the community :)

    This is awesome! I’ve always thought lacrosse was an underrated sport. I don’t play, but lucky for me, it’s actually become huge here, we have the Saskatchewan Rush, and the home games are just packed, super loud. We’ve won the championship the last couple years and so it’s kinda become the thing. We don’t have an nhl, nba, mlb, mls. We are passionate football fans but that’s over the summer, so it’s great to have another sport during the winter. Really happy for the athletes and everyone involved getting the credit they deserve. And this is really awesome of her to have a dream she’s passionate about and be so eager so young and make it a reality, great story! Thanks whistle for sharing it!

    I have their classic gladiator rebounder and personally it’s not that good I know a college coach and they tested it and they say it’s not good either baby it seems good because there’s not that many on the market But it’s not very good at all and frankly I’m a little annoyed I spent money on something like this that Doesn’t really work that well

    What many of you guys don’t know is that she obviously came from a wealthier family to help pay for all this stuff. Pine Crest is a private school where you have to pay 50,000 a year. Just thought you will want to know.

      @Elle Keener even having the funds regardless of the outcome that's a privilege so many people don't have

    • Elle Keener
      Elle Keener 3 months ago +3

      @eric It wasn't handed. Just because you have the funds doesn't mean your business will automatically be successful.

    • Big Man Gav
      Big Man Gav 4 months ago +20

      We can't take anything away from her just because she was born into the right family. She may have had the funds to start instead of having to get a loan, but she still started and continues to run the business.
