Orthopedic ONE is proud to be named the exclusive sports medicine provider to Lucky Lax Lacrosse Club. Founded in 2003 by Catherine Shelley and Trish Derwart with a mission to provide the Greater Columbus Area with quality instruction and playing opportunities, LUCKY LAX takes pride in providing an educational experience in a competitive arena while developing girls’ lacrosse players to their full potential. LUCKY LAX began competing as a Club Program in 2012, with a focus on training elite lacrosse players and teams while offering the tools, opportunities, and resources for both to thrive.

Through this partnership, Orthopedic ONE will provide services and benefits to enhance the experience of all members of LUCKY LAX, including players, families, coaches, and directors. The club identified the following key priorities in selecting a sports medicine partner:
