Mission

ReLax Collections aims to provide used and new lacrosse equipment to teams in underserved communities. By decreasing the barriers to entry into the sport, we can promote a more inclusive and healthier lifestyle in typically underrepresented communities. The costs of lacrosse equipment should not prohibit a player from participating in the game.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our ultimate goal is to get 100% of students around the world the proper education they require to succeed in life. Playing sports has been a proven modality to help students attain this goal. Our organization is determined to help the student athlete gain a paper education through lacrosse.

We are developing our network throughout the lacrosse communities and around the world to make ReLax Collections the source to go to whenever a player, club, or league needs lacrosse equipment to start, develop, or expand the game of lacrosse, especially in the under served areas around the world.

Will Dadouris, the Founder and CEO of ReLax Collections, has been promoting this organization for the past four years. He has received numerous awards and grants from the U.S.Lacrosse, Disney, Do Something, and The Bill Belichick Foundation, to name the most recent.
