Epoch Lacrosse Renews Sponsorship with Guardian Sports


Minneapolis, MN — May 12, 2015 — Epoch Lacrosse today announced it has renewed its relationship with Guardian Sports as an official sponsor of the Guardian National Championships (GNC), a championship style goalie combine and evaluation-styled event. Epoch will be providing its revolutionary Dragonfly C40 carbon composite goalie shafts to the winners of each of the individual age groups (rising freshman, sophomores and juniors). Additionally, ALL participants and Coaches will receive a prototype of Epoch’s game changing “Otter Mesh.”

The Guardian National Championship is the largest lacrosse goalie specific showcase that brings together elite high school goalies from across the country and gives them the stage to showcase their talents in front of 50 plus Division I, II and III college coaches. The goalies are evaluated in 16 goalie-specific tests in four key component areas; REACTIONARY, OFFENSIVE, ATHLETIC and VIRTUAL.

“Our event was created to give lacrosse goaltenders the best of everything from the highest level of evaluation and instruction and now the finest goalie equipment available,” remarked Ginny Capicchioni, Guardian Sports, Founder/CEO.

“It is truly a pleasure to partner with James and Epoch,” said Guardian Sports President Eileen Hillock. “They share our mission of quality and for being ‘the best of the best’ there by revolutionizing the way lacrosse is played and will be played in the future.”

“We are very happy to continue our partnership with Guardian Sports and get our products into the hands of elite high school goalies across the country,” said James Miceli, Principal at Epoch Lacrosse. “Ginny and her team have done an outstanding job creating an event and evaluation process that will change the way goalies are recruited in the future.”
