While Baby Boomers may not be familiar with it, lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in America. Gen Xers and millennials were among the first to wholeheartedly embrace lacrosse, and they’re passing their love of the game on to their children. As a result, many more Americans are playing the fastest game on two feet – so you just might have a lacrosse player on your holiday list. Wondering what to buy? Rukket has you covered.

So if your gift recipient is lugging lacrosse balls everywhere, do his or her back a favor and get this portable ball caddy. It can be set up or collapsed in seconds, and includes a carrying bag for the on-the-go player.

Best Gift for Any Player
Lacrosse is fundamentally a game of running, throwing, and catching. Of these skills, speed is one of the easiest to work on without any tools. But catching a wild pass or throwing accurately and powerfully requires hours of repetition – and there are only so many team practice sessions. Any lacrosse player seeking to improve his or her skills will be overjoyed to receive a lacrosse rebounder. With multiple attack angles and rebound options, there are plenty of ways to configure this rebounder so a player can practice almost any shot, pass, or return. It’s built with typical Rukket ruggedness, including heavy-duty carriage bolts and mesh protected bungies. Set this baby up in the backyard, and say goodbye to your lacrosse player. If you need him, he’ll be out back mastering his skills.
There’s a reason lacrosse’s popularity has exploded in recent years. It’s as aggressive as hockey, as fast-paced as soccer, and as fun to watch as football. If you want to kit out your lacrosse player this holiday season, Rukket has your back.
