Note: Cascade & Maverik Lacrosse are proud partners of LaxAllStars.com
This month, Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse launched a new website called FactoryCustom.com, which lets you design, share and order custom team gear.
From gloves and helmets to uniforms and apparel, FactoryCustom.com serves as a great tool for outfitting a lacrosse team head to toe. Recently, I used it internally to create a variety of options for our NCAA partner teams. Below is a look at the near-final ROME NXT lacrosse glove designs each team will be rocking this year.
While designing the gloves, I worked toward honoring the history of each college/university. Lacrosse is a sport of both tradition and innovation, so I felt it was important to honor the past while equipping each team with a state-of-the-art solution for hand protection in the present.
With back-to-back Ivy League Championships and wins over Albany, Princeton and Cornell, Yale University has emerged as a top 10 NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse program. For Yale’s Rome NXT glove design, I kept it traditional. A smart & clean look for the defending Ivy League champs.
Introducing Rutgers University. Losing one-goal games last season to Syracuse and Notre Dame, Coach Brecht and the Rutgers squad have been preparing for a new year with a better outcome. These gloves are tough, just like the style of lacrosse that is expected from the Scarlet Knights.
Notre Dame was just two goals shy of reaching a third Final Four in four years. They are an elite program, and I think we all expect to see the Irish to do more great things this season.
In 2014, Georgetown will be looking to be a top contender and take home the Big East title.
For Fairfield, I went with a clean white look on the edges and an anodized red that pops down the middle of the glove. What do you think?
For Colgate’s gloves, I decided to combine all three of the school’s colors: grey, maroon & white. Turned out nice.
One of my favorite mock-ups I put together – the purple & yellow Great Dane.
