About Us

We are committed to simplifying your coaching experience with best-in-class software.

Our Story

Labrador Sports has been conceptualized and built by Ryan Gilbert and Eric Schell dating back to spring of 2017. Their history of working together, however, extends far beyond the last year. Ryan and Eric began working together in 2011 at each of their first tries in the professional world. The relationship that developed in their time working together professionally is one that they have continued to tap into today. Now working on Lacrosse Lab, Ryan acts as the CTO and lead developer while Eric provides product vision, marketing, and business development as the CEO.

Labrador Sports Promise

Labrador Sports is committed to building the most comprehensive software available to the sports coaching community. Starting with our best-in-class playbook designer, we have used our vast technical expertise with sports knowledge to help keep your team engaged off the field.

We're not done yet. We will continue to deliver new, innovative solutions to help you teach your players the fundamentals of team strategy, track their progress and help them grow as players.
