Rachel Zietz

CEO, Gladiator Lacrosse

If you were a 13-year-old lacrosse player who didn’t like the equipment on the market, what would you do? Well, if you were Rachel Zietz, you would start your own company! That company, Gladiator Lacrosse, was launched through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, and has now surpassed $1 Million in sales.

Rachel was involved through every step of product development—from product conception to selection of materials, packaging and actual manufacturing, her attention to detail led Gladiator Lacrosse to be the top seller on both Amazon and eBay.

She recently signed lacrosse superstar, Casey Powell, as the brand ambassador, and pitched Gladiator Lacrosse to the Sharks on ABCs Shark Tank, getting a tweet from Robert Herjavec himself, “Rachel will have a seat next to me in the tank one day, she’s a shark in the making!”
