Rachel Zietz was 13 years old when out of frustration with store-bought lacrosse practice equipment, she made her own. Now the 15-year-old lacrosse player-turned-entrepreneur from Boca Raton, Florida will pitch her line of lacrosse practice equipment, Gladiator Lacrosse, on Shark Tank. Gladiator Lacrosse sells ten different products including lacrosse goals and rebounders (a vertical trampoline). See Zietz demonstrate in video below.
Zietz doesn’t just know equipment but she knows how to sell. After graduating from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, one year after launching Gladiator Lacrosse, she’s on track to do $1 million in sales. That’s exactly what investors on Shark Tank like to hear. Shark Tank airs Fridays at 9pm on ABC.
