Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse has entered the chat! With huge success in both Softball and Volleyball, AU is proud to launch a new Women's Lacrosse League!
The league will feature 56 all-star players, including U.S. National Team members Kayla Treanor, Michelle Tumolo, Caylee Waters, Emily Garrity and Amanda Johansen. The league will experiment with a condensed 5-week high-intensity season from July 23 to August 22. The teams will play at Maureen Hendricks Field in the DC Metro Area.
“We are thrilled to feature Signature Lacrosse as the Official Ball Supplier of our inaugural lacrosse league,” said Alessandra Bilardello, Head of Partnership Marketing for Athletes Unlimited."
Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse will play a short form, fast paced format consisting of eight-minute quarters, 10v10 gameplay and a 60-second shot clock all housed on an 90yd x 60yd playing field. Play will begin with draws at the beginning of each quarter as well as after every goal.
The top four players become captains each week and draft their teams from scratch for following week’s games. In our scoring system, every player can lose or win points during every game. Athletes score points as individuals and as a team to win MVP titles and cash bonuses.
“Very excited to be partnering with Athlete’s Unlimited the premier Pro Women’s Lacrosse League. We are honored to have the new Pro S1 ball be trusted as the Official Lacrosse Ball of Pro Women’s Lacrosse. The structure of the league is one of a kind and brings together the most talented players in the world to one stage! This is a game-changer for the game of Lacrosse!” - Dan Soviero, Founder & CEO, Signature Lacrosse
As the official ball of Athletes Unlimited, the players will be using our Pro S1 balls for all games this season. The texture will provide better hold & accuracy than traditional balls; leading to more goals! With the hyper yellow color, inspired from the tennis ball, you'll have no problem tracking this ball when you watch AU play this weekend!
