To our Lucky Lax Family:
It is with great emotion that we here at Lucky Lax wanted to share that the time has come for us to pass the shamROCK. As our 17th year comes to an end, the timing is right to make a transition to new owners. Passion to run a company like this isn’t easy to find but luckily, we didn’t have to look further than our Lucky Lax backyard.
Brittney Fauss-Johnson has been one of our most loyal, long standing and dedicated Lucky Lax staff members. She will be taking over Lucky Lax starting this fall. Each year she has sought more responsibility and ways to contribute to the Lucky Lax Program. You have seen Brittney as an Indoor Director/Coach, Coordinator of Summer Leagues, and Club Coach. Lucky Lax will continue to be the platform for Brittney to share her knowledge and love of the game. Along with Brittney, her husband, Casey Fauss-Johnson will be at the helm handling the behind the scenes work. There is no doubt that the Lucky Lax Legacy will be in good hands!
Let’s take a moment to walk down Lucky Lax’s Memory Lane…
The inception of Lucky Lax dates back to the summer of 2003, when Catherine Shelley and Trish Marton wanted to create more lacrosse opportunities in the off-season for girls in the Columbus area. We founded the company on three simple principles: Equip each player with a solid lacrosse education, Coach the person…not just the player, AND HAVE FUN!
In our first summer league with just 40 girls, we were jills-of-all trades: directing, coaching, playing when numbers were low and even mowing/lining the fields. It was so much fun, we couldn’t wait to build from this foundation…and build we did.
17 years later…
- Lucky Lax has grown to include 26,467 individual registrations
- Over 306 staff members
- 600+ Club Games
- 7,048 Indoor/Summer League Games
- Transitioning from paper registrations to 3 different websites!
Whew! None of that would be possible without 1 thing…PASSION!
While transitioning a company is no easy task, the change has been in progress over the past year with great success. We will continue to support Brittney and Casey to assure the transition continues to be smooth.
We want to thank all of our lacrosse friends from over the years and especially all past and current players and families for choosing Lucky Lax. It gives us great joy that Lucky Lax will continue to grow and flourish under new leadership while ensuring that players gain unmatched development and a greater love for the game!
