“This partnership with RockTape is one that has greatly benefitted Team Canada Lacrosse athletes,” said Jane Clapham, Executive Director of the CLA. “Since there are many athletes who use kinesiology tape, RockTape products will be available for our 2020 Team Canada athletes who will be attending Worlds in Ireland.”
Kinesiology tape and other Rocktape products will be provided for Canadian Men’s U19 Field Lacrosse Team that will be competing at the 2020 World Championship. RockTape will also provide in-service education to the Canadian Men’s U19 Team’s athletic therapist in advance of the world championship.
“We’re incredibly excited to partner with the Canadian Lacrosse Association,” said Stefano Scalia, head of marketing for RockTape North America. “RockTape’s products help athletes move more, better and with less pain. We are equipped and eager to support the lacrosse athletes in all of their needs for the best in sports medicine.”
This national team will compete at the World Lacrosse U19 Men’s Field Lacrosse World Championship in Limerick, Ireland. The world championship takes place July 9-18, 2020 and occurs every four years.
