Rhino Lacrosse was founded in 2005 in Portland, Oregon, by professional lacrosse player and instructor Ryan Powell. Ryan was the first fully endorsed Nike lacrosse athlete. In 2010 he was captain of Team USA when they won the Gold in the FIL World Lacrosse Championship. He is also a repeat MLL and NLL All-star and MVP and Syracuse University legend, earning the NCAA championship title as a player in 2000. As a coach, he assisted Syracuse University in winning another NCAA championship in 2004. Since his years at Syracuse, Ryan has dedicated himself to becoming the world’s premiere lacrosse educator.

Ryan Powell handpicks Rhino’s elite-level staff from among the best players and instructors in the game.
