Depew Lacrosse Club, Inc. Gear
When buying equipment we want to weigh and balance the cost of having
good, protective equipment that will not break down yet still be mindful
that we have many other things to pay for.
The cost of equipment upfront is an investment.
Most pieces will last an entire career; if you are in grade 8 or 9 it
means that you will most likely not need to purchase more gear as long
as it still fits.
The are two online sources we suggest: Lacrosse
Monkey and Sport Stop. We looked for the best
equipment at a fair price.
Equipment at Lacrosse Monkey: http://www.lacrossemonkey.com/
Equipment at Sport Stop: http://www.sportstop.com/
contact Coach Yelich for details on helmets. *
For the price,
you are best served getting sticks from either Dick’s or
online. A complete stick, head (strung) with handle is around $45 at
Dick’s, and online at Lacrosse Monkey or Sport Stop
is $40-$50. These are not top-of-the line sticks, but it’s not the stick,
it’s the guy/girl behind it!

A Harlem Team Is Changing the Face of Lacrosse
The boys’ varsity lacrosse team that is playing this weekend for its third consecutive New York City public schools championship practices on a concrete handball court in a city park with no lights, no room for spectators and broken fencing.
The team is from Frederick Douglass Academy in East Harlem, an area not known for churning out top lacrosse talent — at least until recent years, when the Lions started beating most of the competition.
There are no tryouts and no cuts. The team’s success on the field came almost by accident: The school is the birthplace of Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership, a nonprofit group that began as a way to entice middle school students to stay on track for graduating and going to college. It installs an academic support team within schools and requires students to attend study hall and keep their grades up in order to play.
Lacrosse, despite its roots as a Native American sport, struggles to be seen as something other than elite, suburban and mostly white. So the Lions are a sign of progress. Their success comes as public school lacrosse has been transformed in a city in which there were once just six boys’ programs (including four on Staten Island). There are now 24, along with 27 varsity girls’ teams, with nonprofits like CityLax and Harlem Lacrosse driving the expansion.
“I always had the heart and mind to be successful, but I didn’t have the support,” said Davon Johnson, a senior who will attend the college prep school Vermont Academy next year on nearly a full scholarship. Lacrosse “changed my life,” he said. “It helped me find direction.”
The sport’s rapid growth has created some challenges for city schools, like finding a place to play. To practice on a real lacrosse field, the Frederick Douglass players must travel. So, one by one, they file out of their brick school, hop on the subway and then walk a few blocks to catch a bus bound for Randalls Island, situated between Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx.
By now, they’re used to the funny looks and questions generated by a 40-man team commuting by public transit to lacrosse practice. “Is that a hockey stick?” a man asked one afternoon.
The players say they love the sport’s fast pace and team focus. And they don’t mind making a lacrosse stick seem less foreign around the city.
Nearly an hour after they left school, they met for practice at Field 50 ahead of the playoffs. On Thursday, they beat Hunter College High School, earning another trip to the final. On Sunday night, they have a chance to claim their third consecutive title, and their fourth in seven years, when they play Tottenville of Staten Island.
The Lions’ backer, Harlem Lacrosse, started, unofficially, in 2008 with 11 students, 10 sticks and Simon Cataldo, a special-education math teacher and Teach for America member who wanted to give his most challenging students a reason to stay in school. When the team grew to 35 students, he co-founded the organization in 2011.
The program now counts about 1,000 students — boys and girls, 99 percent of whom identify as nonwhite — in five cities, after spreading to Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Los Angeles. In N.C.A.A. Divisions I, II and III, only 18.2 percent of men’s lacrosse players identified as nonwhite in 2018, according to N.C.A.A. statistics.
Harlem Lacrosse aims to expand from middle schools to high schools as well — Frederick Douglass is its lone high school program, and in the fall, its girls’ varsity lacrosse team will become the first to be affiliated with Harlem Lacrosse.
Frederick Douglass Academy students have gotten scholarships to attend private boarding schools and colleges, such as Bates, Haverford and Hobart. This year, for the first time, an F.D.A. alumnus played Division I lacrosse when Dy-Jae Pearson suited up for Bryant University in Rhode Island.
Roaming the school’s hallways to ensure that students are attentive in class is Owen Van Arsdale, a former lacrosse star at the University of Virginia who functions as a coach and chief mentor, monitoring grades and attendance. To get the team to play tougher competition, he scheduled four nonleague games this season against suburban schools — the Lions lost all four (though they have previously beaten suburban schools).
In the locker room, a progress report attached to a whiteboard reveals that 14 players made the honor roll recently. Several students have gone from failing classes to passing, others from barely passing to thriving.
“I don’t know where I would be without this,” said Sekou Soumahoro, a sophomore who plays attack.
Students stumble upon the game in various ways. Many learn from older students or friends who play. Soumahoro was a basketball player until seventh grade, when a friend taught him how to play lacrosse. He has been hooked since and wants to play in college.
Born in Harlem, he moved with his family to Queens, where he rises at 5 a.m. every weekday for a 90-minute subway ride to school. He uses the time to do homework and read. The program gives the team a sense of purpose, he said, and its academic focus helped him turn mostly C’s and D’s into A’s and B’s.
“I would get in trouble a lot, then Harlem Lacrosse changed me,” Soumahoro said. “I learned the game on concrete, so it took some getting used to on a real grass field. There are days I will be on the train and people will look at me like, ‘A black kid has a lacrosse stick in their hand?’”
Students say they sometimes sense classmates and onlookers believe lacrosse is not supposed to be played in the city by kids who are black, Latino or multiracial. That perception, along with a lack of resources for fields and costly equipment, has long held lacrosse back in cities.
Lacrosse has been America’s fastest-growing high school team sport for decades, according to U.S. Lacrosse, and Devin O’Brien, a former teacher who is now executive director of Harlem Lacrosse New York, said he receives a steady flow of emails from parents and principals asking if Harlem Lacrosse can come to their school. But there is a long waiting list: The program’s biggest challenge is a lack of funding, despite support from the New Balance Foundation and the Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation.
For now, F.D.A. remains the only place where Harlem Lacrosse students can develop as players and leaders at the high school level.
One is junior Rashad Saleh, who discovered the sport when a Harlem Lacrosse coach went to every classroom introducing the game. This season, he is a team captain.
“Coaches told me, ‘You are able to do this,’” he said. “I didn’t think anybody would give me that push. Harlem Lacrosse is the little school behind the school that gives you the push. It gets to the point where the security guard has to come upstairs and kick us out of school because we’re studying late.”
This year, each student wrote a note to a teammate. Saleh addressed his to Donte Martinez and noted how, like many of his teammates, he had become an honor student, using lacrosse as a catalyst to turn around his life.
Saleh wrote: “To Donte: We as a team notice that you’ve come a long way. We see that you’ve been missing practice for pm school but it’s good because you are taking care of what’s important. I believe you will be successful in whatever you do after high school. I appreciate the energy you bring when you do get to come to practice.”
The message, on a 4-inch-by-6-inch notecard, is fixed to Martinez’s locker, for all to see.
Tribe7 Lacrosse Equipment, Part 1
Meet Tribe7 Lacrosse. Tribe7 is a newly formed equipment company based in New York City. The company is run by a man that is extremely outspoken and ecstatic about lacrosse, which is refreshing. Rob Littell took time away from his busy schedule to describe his company in part 1 of our 2 part series.
For starters, what should people know about Tribe 7?
That we are set up to service the lax community’s needs. Several of us here have been a part of the lax family for nearly 40 years. And we’ve had an awesome, pretty much ridiculous number of opportunities laid at our feet for this association. For simply having loved a game. Soooo….we’re hoping to be able to open the sport up a bit, expanding the opportunities, by lowering the bar of entry, with the best gear on planet Earth, at doofy prices. The game is going ballistic on a global basis, which is fabulous. Except for some of the commercialism, and resultant exploitation. We’re trying to build a wall of sorts to protect our community, a kind of rampart to defend the integrity of our game. As such, if you love lax, we invite you to stand on the wall with us.
Very cool and admirable, but where did the name come from?
There was once Five Iroquois Tribes, that, in 1720, added a sixth Tribe, creating the Six Nations. Lax players. Now, 290 years later, the Founders sport has gone global. Creating a far larger Tribe. That we refer to as #7. Tribe7. Everybody.
Where are you located and what’s your background with lacrosse?
We’re HQ’d in the East Village of New York City. I got my first stick in 7th grade, and, like most, fell in love with the game right away. Played High School ball at Lawrenceville, in NJ, where we lost the State Finals to Columbia my Senior year…. 1st Team All-State in NJ….then off to Brown, where we peaked at #4 in the rankings, and I was selected to the North-South All Star squad. Then, 6 years with the Skoal Bandits, for some crazy club ball. I currently Coach 2 teams, and founded Tribe7 after we helped outfit a team at the East Harlem School. We paid a ridiculous amount of money for a bunch of low-end, second class gear. Resulting in our mission: First Class gear at silly low prices.
That’s what up. Good job Rob. You’re a very charismatic guy. How were you able to transfer your energy into the products?
Competitive energy is a very powerful creative force.
What do you think? Check back later for the final part of the interview.
Lacrosse – Review – tutorialspoint.com
Lacrosse is a competitive sport in which two teams have to hit a small rubber ball into the opposing team’s goal using stick equipment called cross . A cross is a stick with a net at the end that is used to carry or grab the ball.
The main goal is to score a cross and throw the ball into the goal while dodging the opponents and their goalkeeper.
A Brief History of Lacrosse
Lacrosse was invented in 1100 AD and the sport was created in the name of Creator Game in 17th century Canada. At that time, each team consisted of approximately 100-1000 people on a large field of 500 to 3 km in length.
Considering the number of players and their passion in general, each match lasted about two to three days right from sunrise to sunset! They used a lightweight wooden ball about 3 inches in diameter, and the stick was a sturdy staff about 5 feet long with a hoop at the end that was used to grab and pass the ball.
Lacrosse was perceived as a sport with deep spiritual involvement as the sport matched the fighting spirit of the players. This is why this sport has played a distinctive role in their tribal community for many years.
Participants replaced the role of warriors in sports, and victory meant they brought glory and honor to their community. They played this for their creator, hence the name The Creator’s Game.
The sport was widespread in other countries when the French Jesuit missionary Jean de Breeuf saw the Iroquois tribes practice the sport in 1637 in what was later civilized and called New York.He named it La Crosse, hence the name lacrosse .
The first lacrosse club, Montreal Lacrosse Club , was founded by Canadian dentist William George Bierce in 1855. He systematized the sport in 1867 by shortening the duration of the match and setting the number of 12 players on each team.
In the same year, after the creation of modern lacrosse, the first match played was between the Montreal Lacrosse Club and the Toronto Cricket Club, with the Beers defeating the latter 1-3.

New in the treatment of leukemia.American-Russian Medical Cooperation
New in leukemia treatment, US-Russian collaboration, and the latest medical news – these are the topics of our today’s show.
Leukemias, that is, malignant lesions of the hematopoietic system, are very common diseases, difficult, and sometimes practically incurable. Naturally, each new drug created with the aim of curing this most dangerous disease attracts great interest from both doctors and patients.We asked Professor Daniil Golubev to talk about one of the newest drugs of this kind.
We are talking about a drug called “STI – 571” – another name – “Gilmek”, which turned out to be very effective in the treatment of one of the most insidious forms of damage to the hematopoietic system – the so-called chronic myeloid leukemia. In the United States, up to 10 thousand cases of this disease are registered annually. Until now, there have been no effective treatments for myeloid leukemia, but according to the results of recently completed clinical trials conducted at the Anderson Cancer Center in Houston under the direction of Dr. Gilmek “. Evgeny Muslin:
Please explain what it means “reacted positively” and how the tests were conducted in general?
The very name of the disease – “chronic myeloid leukemia” – indicates the nature of its course, which is a change of exacerbations and remissions. So: under the influence of a six-month intake of “Gilmek” tablets in 90 percent of patients in the first, that is, relatively mild phase of the disease, the exacerbation was replaced by a stable remission.With patients in the second, more severe phase of the disease, long-term remission was noted in 63 percent of cases. A total of 530 patients in the first phase of chronic myeloid leukemia and 230 in the second were under observation. The obtained data, characterized by statistical reliability, were reported and discussed at a meeting of the American Hematological Association.
Well, how did other specialists – members of such an authoritative medical community – react to these results?
Dr. Edward Benz – President of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard Medical School said the following: “Gilmec” is certainly not a panacea, but, undoubtedly, a valuable model for the creation of new anti-cancer drugs of the future, since it acts on the mechanism of development of the disease and does not destroy normal cells. “Dr. Brian Drucker, the head of the development of new anti-cancer drugs at the Oregon State University Medical Center, also spoke about this. According to him, “the central problem of cancer chemotherapy is the search for means that differentiate normal and malignant cells. Gilmec solves this problem, and it is certainly the most effective treatment for chronic myeloid leukemia at the present time, since it directly acts on the cause of the disease.” …
Is it already known exactly what causes chronic myeloid leukemia?
In recent years, it has been established that the real cause of this disease is a special pathogenic protein encoded by abnormal chromosomes.It is this protein that causes the formation of a huge number of immature, inherently malignant, white blood cells, which leads to diverse and harmful changes in various organs and systems of the body and, in general, forms the clinical picture of myeloid leukemia. Gilmek blocks the signals that the pathogenic protein carries with it, and thereby prevents the formation, maturation and growth of malignant leukocytes. I would like to emphasize: the drug does not interfere with the synthesis of this protein itself, but only blocks its signals, but this is sufficient to have a pronounced therapeutic effect in such a serious disease as chronic myeloid leukemia. Evgeny Muslin:
How was chronic myeloid leukemia treated before?
Well, first of all, it would be more correct to say not “treated”, but continue to treat, since “Gilmek” is still being tested. Secondly, and this is very sad, there are simply no effective treatments for this disease. The only approved method is bone marrow transplantation, which is very often fatal – alas, up to 40 percent of cases end in this way.As for drugs, none of them is able to reduce the number of abnormal malignant leukocytes synthesized in the patient’s body, or restore normal hematopoiesis.
In this respect, chronic myeloid leukemias differ from other forms of malignant diseases of the hematopoietic system, in particular, the so-called lymphomas, that is, lesions of the lymphatic tissue. It is also an extremely serious and dangerous disease, but there are quite effective drugs against it that have a pronounced therapeutic effect.Such, in particular, is “Rituxan”, produced by the company “Genotech”. Until now, nothing of the kind has been known for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemias. More often than others, with the hope of a curative effect, various types of interferons are used, but at the same time, there are frequent (up to 20 percent of cases) toxic side effects (side effects) and patients are forced to stop treatment because of this. That is why experts were so enthusiastic about the results of the clinical assessment of “Gilmek” – “side effects” in this case occurred in only 2 percent of cases. Evgeny Muslin:
What are the real prospects for using the new drug? When will it start to be widely used?
It is expected to enter the pharmaceutical market in June 2001, but clinical observations will nevertheless continue. The fact is that “Gilmek” has been tested on humans for only 2 years and it is necessary to form an idea about the long-term consequences of its use – both in terms of its effectiveness and in terms of side effects with prolonged use.In this regard, it is important to emphasize that patients can themselves, at will, be included in clinical trials. It is likely that what happened to them, 50-year-old Carol Stuckey from Oregon, who suffered from chronic myeloid leukemia, but after two weeks of taking “Gilmek” felt such significant relief and energy that for the first time in recent years. .. went to do Christmas shopping.
The New York Times recently published an editorial summarizing several of the newspaper’s publications on the state and prospects of Russian healthcare.“One of the most dire social consequences of the disordered transition to a market economy in Russia was the de facto disintegration of the healthcare system,” the author of the article writes. “The Soviet system had many flaws, but the current problems are even more fundamental. Hospitals and clinics lack essential medicines and equipment. and they are flooded with a flood of sick. ”Despite the partial successes in some places and despite the heroic efforts of the medical profession, the overall health statistics are bleak.The average life expectancy for men has dropped below 60 years – compared with 74 years in the United States. The death rate exceeds the birth rate. Previously suppressed infections, including tuberculosis, diphtheria and polio, have re-emerged. The AIDS situation is alarming. Tough economic conditions have contributed to an increase in crime and alcoholism. ”
Further, the author of an editorial in The New York Times writes that the restoration of Russian health care will require both large budgetary expenditures and Western aid – and it will still take many years.But sometimes success can be achieved with modest means, as happened in Dubna, 130 kilometers from Moscow, thanks to a partnership with doctors in the Wisconsin city of Lacrosse. American doctors helped their Russian colleagues modernize maternity care, pediatric practice, and care for the elderly. “Much of the success is due to the fact,” the author of the editorial concludes, “that local Dubna leaders did not succumb to the passivity that paralyzes attempts to revive Russian health care in other cities.”Now we bring to your attention an abbreviated summary of the report by the New York Times correspondent Michael Ouans from Dubna.
“In a country where the average life expectancy is low, Nina Nikolaeva Semenovskaya is a remarkable exception: she is 93 years old, and she is still able to perform romances, accompanying herself on an old piano. How did she survive to such an old age?
Every week for the past 7 years, a nurse has been visiting her, who checks her eye pressure, pulse, ability to walk, and measures blood pressure.And twice a week a social worker comes to help her with shopping and housekeeping. Likewise, the Dubna city authorities take care of about 400 other elderly and disabled people, which you will not see in any other Russian city. So, this city with a population of 67 thousand people is a good example of how sick Russia could heal itself, and how other countries could help her in this. It is also a lesson in the remarkable partnership between Dubna and the American Midwest.For 8 years, doctors and hospitals in Lacrosse, Wisconsin have sent many doctors and doctors to Russia to work in Dubna, and in exchange they have received thousands of Russians. This exchange radically changed Dubna’s health care practice and brought it to attention in several other cities.
Almost every street in Dubna shows changes: it is a recently opened rebuilt maternity hospital, a renal dialysis center, a diabetic education center, as well as women’s clinics or a health center for disabled children.You will not find this in any Russian city of this size. All of this was built in the 90s, when bureaucracy and economic chaos turned many clinics and hospitals in other cities literally into ruins.
More effective medical procedures have also made it possible to reduce a third of hospital beds in Dubna without harming the population and, since 1992, five times the number of patients admitted to diabetic coma. The contraceptive program has reduced the number of abortions by a third compared to the Russian average, and the death rate is 20 percent below the average.It should be admitted, however, that Dubna is not quite an ordinary Russian city. And the medical revival here would not have happened without a happy coincidence and American help. Nevertheless, Dubna owes much to itself. “Good change doesn’t happen without a good environment,” says Sandra McCormick, an American midwife in the Dubna medical renaissance.
The city of Dubna with its Joint Institute for Nuclear Research was declassified under Khrushchev in 1956.The city’s well-being was based on generous government subsidies. But in 1991, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, these subsidies stopped, and the city found itself in a difficult situation. “There were no government orders, and we found ourselves practically without a budget, there was nothing to pay salaries and pensions with, 2,500 people completely lost their jobs, the rest were delayed for a long time,” said city mayor Valery Eduardovich Prokh. Fortunately, Proch was not an ordinary apparatchik. He began to look for ways to save the day and quite unexpectedly came across a helping hand stretched 10 thousand kilometers from the American city of Lacrosse.The fact is that in the late 1980s, several local doctors joined the Doctors for Social Responsibility group, which promoted peace among nations, and this group made Dubna and Lacrosse twin cities. It began with the fact that the inhabitants of Lacrosse sent 170 tons of food, clothing and medicine to Dubna, and 16 people flew there to help unload and distribute all this. Among them was one of the administrators of the city Lutheran hospital, Jack Schwem. Returning to Lacrosse, he inspired his deputy McCormick with enthusiasm, and she turned to the American International Development Agency for financial assistance, which subsidized cooperation between American and Russian hospitals.The agency allocated funds, and McCormick got down to business. Eight years later, Lacrosse and Dubna have already exchanged thousands of physicians who have visited each other.
“The mayor of Dubna turned out to be a real visionary,” McCormick said in an interview after his 35th trip to Dubna last November. until Dubna health care got back on its feet. ” By the way, most of the money was spent not on expensive medical equipment, but on air tickets, which allowed Russians to personally get acquainted with the practice of American health care.For example, after a trip to Lacrosse in 1993, Dubna leaders registered more than 2,000 patients over 60 years of age and began to provide them with medical assistance at home, as they saw in Wisconsin.
After the next trip to Dubna, money was found to turn the unloaded kindergarten building into a rehabilitation center for children with deformed limbs. Before that, children had to be transported to Moscow all the time – for every trifle. Now, in Dubna itself, children are provided with orthopedic assistance using American technology, which is not available in the capital.The list of Dubna achievements is quite impressive. An estimated $ 300,000 from the city budget helped transform the old maternity hospital, where mothers were kept separate from their newborns, into a modern American-style maternity center. Mothers have separate rooms here in which they give birth and care for their children. Russian doctors and nurses have abandoned their traditional idea that contact with a child inevitably threatens an infection. “A trip to the United States convinced us that this is not so,” says the head physician of the maternity hospital, Viktor Dmitriev.Following the American example, a local Center for Combating Alcoholism was opened in Dubna and classes for teenagers were organized to teach them how to smooth out mutual conflicts. A grant from the US Department of Health has made it possible to start classes in Dubna schools to explain the harm caused to health by smoking and alcohol.
Specialists from Lacrosse allowed Dubna residents to purchase two renal dialysis machines, helped to install them and trained their attendants. Women’s clinics in Dubna received a special grant from America to supply everyone with contraceptive pills for two years, as a result of which the number of abortions in the city almost halved.Now a center for diagnostics of venereal diseases is also being equipped here, for which you still have to travel to Moscow.
Having familiarized themselves with the Wisconsin practice of treating the five most common diseases in Dubna, Dubna doctors began to hospitalize such patients less often and prescribe fewer drugs to them. This allowed Dubna residents to reduce the number of hospital beds by 190 and save huge amounts of money. “Our program has been more successful than I expected,” says American physician Kermit Newkamer.”Russian doctors are proud of the successful mastery of the American experience, and the general public fully supports them.”
When in the spring of 1998, the aircraft of NATO countries, including the United States, began bombing Yugoslav targets in connection with the events in Kosovo, this aroused the indignation of many Russians. Dubna residents began bombarding their mayor with letters demanding an end to all relations with the residents of Lacrosse, if Lacrosse does not condemn the American actions in Yugoslavia. The mayor wrote a diplomatic response to the authors of the letter, the general meaning of which was a firm “NO”.“We have many friends in Lacrosse,” Valery Prokh explained in his interview.
A year ago, the US stopped funding medical collaboration between Lacrosse and Dubna. The reason is that Dubna no longer needs help. Other Russian cities desperately need help, whether they will receive it is another question.
President Putin, who sees Russia’s shrinking population as a threat to national security, has ordered officials to restore order to health care. In September of the year before last, the Kremlin issued guidelines for medical professionals.Following the example of Western countries, they are encouraged to pay more attention to disease prevention and promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
Last fall, the Russian Minister of Health, in an effort to draw everyone’s attention to the relevance of the fight against cardiovascular diseases rampant in Russia, right at a government meeting in the Kremlin took a blood pressure measuring device from his portfolio and invited his colleagues to check this pressure. The results were quite eloquent: 80 percent of the measurements showed the presence of hypertension.Half of the ministers, however, refused to check “… – this was the account of the report of the” New York Times “correspondent from Dubna.
In many patients, doctors cannot diagnose diabetes in a timely manner, just because blood tests are done at the wrong time of the day when needed. A recent study from the National Institute of Diabetes showed that if the test is not done in the morning, but in the afternoon, then diabetes can be skipped, since the concentration of glucose in the blood decreases sharply by this time.According to Dr. Maureen Harris, who published this study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, morning tests show diabetes twice as often as afternoon tests.
Various infections are the main cause of death in newborns, especially premature babies. And it is very important to establish the infection in a timely manner. University of Virginia researchers Pamela Griffin and Randal Moorman have found an easy way to diagnose early. In an article published in the journal Pediatrics, they write that small abnormalities in heart rhythm, which have not yet been paid attention to, can be a sign of infection.To analyze these deviations, the researchers developed a special mathematical technique and corresponding computer programs. All this allows you to detect the infection even before it shows any other symptoms.

New Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc. (NBAS), better known as New Balance, is an American sports footwear and apparel manufacturer based in Brighton, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.The company was founded in 1906 as the New Balance Arch Support Company.
In 1906, in the city of Belmont (Macachusetts, USA), the English emigrant William Riley founded a company producing instep supports and other accessories designed to improve footwear. According to corporate legend, once, observing a chicken walking in its house, Riley noticed that it possesses exceptional stability, due to the fact that a chicken spatula was named after it. This idea was soon embodied by him in the design of a support system for his shoes.William Riley has developed a special supporter, creating a support for the heel of the foot on three points, by analogy with a chicken foot. This technology brought him recognition, and the company received its first name – New Balance Arch Company.
In 1927, Riley hired Arthur Hall as a salesperson. In 1934, Hall became a business partner and found a new niche – he started selling the company’s products to people whose work required them to spend a lot of time on their feet.
In 1938, New Balance creates its first running shoe for a local running club known as the Boston Brown Bag Harriers.These sneakers were designed by William Riley himself. They were made from kangaroo skin.

In 1956 Hall sold the business to his daughter Eleanor and her husband Paul Kidd.
At this time in the United States, the number of people who go in for running is dramatically increasing and many have started to apply to the New Balance with the orders of special safety shoes, knowing that the brand had been taken from the watch. The demand for New Balance products grew rapidly and the production of custom-made shoes became the main business of the company.Paul Kidd gives the company its current name – New Balance Athletic Shoe inc.
In 1960, the company developed the Trackster, the world’s first sneaker with a ribbed sole. These shoes became very popular, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Tufts University and Boston University began using the Trackster for their running teams. Other colleges and private high schools across the country will soon follow.

In 1962, Kenneth Coopep, the man who invented aerobics, became the first famous man to run the Boston Marathon in the New Balance Trackster.
However, sales began to fall because the company did not pay attention to promoting its products. All marketing came down to word of mouth and sales at local sports fairs. This continued until the early 1970s.
On the day of the Boston Marathon in 1972, Jim Davis bought New Balance. Davis was 28 when he acquired New Balance. He was well versed in marketing and sales, having gained experience as a sales representative for a high-tech medical electronics company.By the early 1970s, Davis was ready to pursue his next dream: owning and running his own business.
Davis’ friend suggested that he talk to Paul Kidd, who wanted to retire and sell his company to New Balance Shoes. Davis spoke to Kidd and spent some time researching the company, interviewing a small group of New Balance customers. “I felt that activity products were going to be a fast-growing market,” Davis recalled, “and found that New Balance had a quality product.Customers using their shoes have confirmed my opinion. ” Using his savings and money from a long-term bank loan, Davis bought New Balance in 1972 for $ 100,000, the same amount the company earned in a year.
When Davis acquired New Balance, the company employed five workers who worked in Watertown, Massachusetts, in a garage, producing about 30 pairs of New Balance Trackster sneakers a day. Davis intended to significantly scale up the company’s operations, but first needed to create a nationwide distribution system to support such growth, and he spent most of his first year building a network of sales representatives.
Gradually Boston became the center of the running boom that hit the United States in the 1970s and this helped New Balance to reach new heights.
In 1976, New Balance launches the new running shoe, the M320, which is recognized by the authoritative magazine Runners World as the best running shoe on the competitive market. The comments of the authors of the magazine were as follows: “The New Balance M320 was recognized as the best model of the year for the introduction of such innovations, as a high, tightly fixing the foot, and also replaced the tongue.»Starting from this moment, New Balance is the recognized world leader in the field of development and implementation of the latest technology in sports shoes.

Davis realized he was selling a highly popular product, the success of which would forever change the face of the once mediocre New Balance. As the company struggled to meet demand by increasing production, the number of orders increased every month. Annual sales rose from $ 221,583 in 1973 to over $ 1,000,000 in 1976 and $ 4,500,000 in 1977.
In 1978, a New Balance store opens in England, and a factory in Ireland produces New Balance products for the European market. In the same year, New Balance begins to produce clothing. On display were nylon and mesh tops and shorts, as well as Gore-Tex tracksuits.
In 1980, New Balance launched the 620, then the lightest running shoe on the market. It was also the first shoe to break the $ 50 retail price barrier.
The massive spike in running popularity that began in the early 1970s and allowed New Balance to sell more and more sneakers continued into the 1980s.The industry grew at about 20 percent a year. By 1982, a decade after Davis acquired the company, New Balance was selling $ 60 million in products a year, and its prospects were as bright as in the previous six years. Three years later, the company was bringing in $ 85 million a year, but it was at this point that the ever-growing athletic shoe industry and New Balance took different paths.
The famous New Balance 420 sneakers are released in 1982.This model has been produced in a wide variety of colors for years and remains a favorite to this day. In the same year, New Balance opens its first plant in the UK and also launches the high-tech 990, raising the price barrier to $ 100 for the first time.
While the industry continued to expand, New Balance’s profits began to decline. The company staggered, and Davis blamed himself for it. “We tried to chase Nike and Reebok in terms of design, which we should never have done.The result was a lot of sales, a lot of sales below the recommended wholesale price. ” Between 1986 and 1989, New Balance’s financial growth virtually disappeared, and Davis looked for answers.
In 1989, company management called on Jim Davis to relocate American factories to Asia. The benefits of this move were obvious. Instead of paying $ 10 an hour plus benefits to its American workers, New Balance can operate in Asia and pay workers $ 1 a day or less.What’s more, all of New Balance’s biggest competitors have already done so and have experienced staggering financial growth. Despite overwhelming evidence, Davis did not agree to the postponement of production. He insisted that his manufacturing facility be located near the company’s headquarters. In fact, he did the opposite. Davis began investing in his U.S. manufacturing facility, strengthening his position when others urged him to go overseas.
Since the 1990s, the company’s goal has been to reduce the time it takes to launch new shoe models from one year to four months.To achieve this goal, Davis began investing heavily in overhauls to improve efficiency and increase production throughput.
In 1991, as sales approached $ 100 million and profitability returned, Davis set aside $ 2 million for new equipment. In 1993, $ 3 million was allocated for high-tech equipment such as automatic cutting and stitching machines. By the end of 1994, $ 6 million had been spent on a new CAD system, which, along with other new equipment, allowed the New Balance research team to reduce the time required to introduce a new product from one year to four months.In addition, the investment in new equipment has helped to increase New Balance’s gross profit margins.
By the mid-1990s, New Balance was once again a thriving business. Revenue in 1995 was about $ 380 million, apparel and a variety of athletic shoes were produced. The five manufacturing facilities of the company in Massachusetts and Maine produced sneakers for running, walking, tennis, basketball. When annual sales jumped to $ 474 million in 1996, Davis set his sights on hitting the $ 1 billion sales mark by 2000.To achieve its goal, the company stepped up its advertising efforts, spending $ 13 million on advertising in 1998, up from $ 4 million spent in 1997.
By the end of 1998, New Balance became one of the five largest athletic shoe manufacturers in the world. James Davis was planning to triple in advertising.
In September 1998, New Balance acquired the Dunham footwear brand.
Throughout 1998, almost all athletic shoe manufacturers experienced a decline in sales.Only Adidas and New Balance showed growth.
In March 1999, the company launched a new marketing campaign for its children’s line of athletic shoes on the Nickelodeon television channel. In May 1999, the foundation was laid for the company’s new corporate headquarters, although the company remained in Boston.
In January 2000, the company launched a new plant in California.
In April 2001, New Balance announced that its newly formed Aravon division would specialize in orthopedic footwear.Its release is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2002. In the same year, New Balance acquires the renowned footwear brand PF Flyers.
By 2003, the company had become the third largest sports shoe manufacturer with 11% market share in the United States.
In February 2004, the company acquired Warrior, a lacrosse equipment manufacturer, and became a sponsor of the major US lacrosse league.
Ahead of the 2012 US presidential election, New Balance creates unique shoes for President Barack Obama.The 990 Made in USA sneaker has been specially crafted to showcase the importance of local industry in America.
