We are all about Lacrosse!

Slash Lacrosse is a locally owned, family-run specialty lacrosse store.  We provide a huge selection of lacrosse equipment and cater to new players, professional players and everyone in between.

At Slash Lacrosse, our goal is to grow the great game of lacrosse by sharing our love and knowledge of the sport through exceptional customer service.  Slash Lacrosse opened its doors on January 11, 2013. As we approach our 6th year of business, we are proud to have acquired new brands and grown our customer base substantially over the last 5 years.

We are committed to customer satisfaction and are confident we have the equipment to get the future lacrosse star in your family suited up and on the floor.

Our customers are always amazed by our huge selection of inventory; our products, prices and excellent customer service are what keeps them coming back from near and far.

Over the last 6 years, we have grown our customer base exponentially and are proud to serve not only Central Alberta but customers across Canada and the US. We’ve even sent gear to players in Serbia!

There’s a reason customers from across the country choose Slash Lacrosse and once you shop with us, you’ll understand exactly why. The value and customer service you receive is second to none and our goal is to ensure every customer is completely satisfied every time they shop with us.

We carry a huge selection of the tops brands in the lacrosse industry such as Warrior, Brine, STX, Maverik, Cascade, Under Armour, Adrenaline and many more.  We are proud to be the exclusive Boddam dealer in Central Alberta. Slash Lacrosse also specializes in custom orders for goalies and team equipment.

GO TEAM SULLIVAN!

You will often find one of the four Sullivans in Slash, at various tournaments around the province, or on the floor sharing their love of lacrosse with up and coming lacrosse stars.  This family IS lacrosse through and through, and their love of this great sport shines through at Slash Lacrosse.

Our Beginnings

With the help and support of her wonderful family, Janelle Sullivan opened the doors to Slash Lacrosse on January 11, 2013.  Janelle and her siblings, Josh and Janessa, all started their lacrosse careers in the Red Deer Lacrosse Association in 2000. Since then, the three siblings have continued to compete competitively and grow the sport in Red Deer and surrounding areas.  

After graduating from the minor program in the Red Deer Lacrosse Association, Janelle and Janessa eventually competed on the same team in the Red Deer Major Lacrosse Association; the Junior Ladies Riot and the Senior Ladies Rage Teams. In 2015, Janessa began dedicating her time as a coach to the Red Deer Midget Girls team and the Senior Ladies Rage team and led them to many successful seasons.  Janessa continues to volunteer her time as a beloved coach today. Janelle went on to win a silver and gold medal at ladies nationals in 2015 and 2016 and received the Mayor’s Recognition Award for winning a national championship.

Josh’s major lacrosse career has been divided between the Red Deer Junior Tier 1 Rampage, the Junior A St Albert Miners, the Senior B St Albert Miners and the Senior A Coquitlam Adanacs.  Josh holds two National gold medals and a bronze medal from the Presidents Cup with the St Alberta Miners. He also received the 7th Man Award while playing with the Coquitlam Adanacs.  For the whole Sullivan family, 2015 was the highlight of Josh’s career, and one of their proudest moments, when he signed his first year in the NLL with the Colorado Mammoth.  He played three consecutive years with the Mammoth and was the proud (and very deserving) recipient of the Fan’s Choice Award in 2017. In 2018, Josh signed another 3-year contract with the Colorado Mammoth.  None of the above would’ve been possible if it wasn’t for the world’s best mom and #1 fan and supporter, “Mama Sull.”

Tournament | Vendor

Hosting a tournament and looking for a vendor?  At Slash Lacrosse, we love setting up a booth at lacrosse tournaments!  If you’d like us to attend your tournament, please let us know the dates and times, size of the event (ie: number of players participating) and anything you’re asking for in return (ie: donations, the cost to attend, etc).  Please understand that we receive an extremely high number of requests and although we wish we could make it to every tournament, realistically we can only make it to so many. If we cannot make it to your tournament this year, we will do our best to make it the following year.  That being said, the more notice we have, the better. Many tournaments fall on the same weekend and precedence will be given to those who let us know as far in advance as possible.

What We Offer

We know firsthand the value and importance of sports in children’s lives and want to keep lacrosse as affordable as possible for all our customers.  We offer a wide range of lacrosse equipment at competitive prices and an extremely convenient shopping experience. We have quality equipment for players just starting out and the latest and greatest for players competing at the highest level possible.  Our customers travel from near and far to shop with us, not only for out outstanding selection, but also for our exceptional customer service. Although we are a specialty lacrosse store, we deal with many different companies and have access to a wide range of other sporting equipment.  Hockey, ringette, baseball, football, volleyball… need something that’s not lacrosse? Let us know what you’re looking for and we will try our best to fulfill your needs. Once you’ve shopped at Slash Lacrosse, you won’t want to shop anywhere else.

Sponsorship

We want to give back to those who support us and are happy to review your sponsorship request.  Please send us details of what you’re asking for (include specifics), the date you’re requesting this for and what the donation/sponsorship proceeds will be used for.  Please understand that we receive an extremely high number of requests for sponsorship and all requests will be evaluated through a selection process. We ask that you understand we are not always able to fulfill all sponsorship requests.
