OUR STORY

Made in Southern California & Vancouver, BC

In Our House we strive to be Om.  What does that mean?

The real person behind the story is Alessia, currently 14-years old. co-founder of Om Athletix.   A few years ago Alessia wanted comfortable clothes that she could wear while playing her favorite sports and not need to go home before hanging out with her friends. We found some styles that were OK but wanted to make a few small changes and thought the best fabrics, designs and styles did not need to be so expensive, especially since she was growing so fast!  

We chose Om as the name because a few of us Parents started to notice after a few years of playing that the girls were being more mean and aggressive the more they played.   Being aggressive is OK, as long as it is in a mindful way...that is when it hit us- there needed to be more Om in the sport and in girls' hearts and minds. Hence, Om Athletix!

Many know us as Om Lax since when we began we were designing clothes for lacrosse because we found there was no great stuff out there. We have evolved into Om Athletix and we make practical & fashionable athletic and lifestyle clothing for all young female athletes, teams and girls.  We worked with local Middle and High School teams and athletes to design and perfect our product and now have a selection of really comfortable clothing you can wear all day long.  We use awesome fabrics that are the same as the ones you are buying now and paying a lot more for.  
 
It has taken us more than two years to get the patterns and fabrics just right for you to be able to play your best and be your best all day.  We only make small quantities of each item because we enjoy getting lots of different fabrics and want to keep it unique and one of a kind, just like you. We are very open to your ideas for styles, accessory or any other brilliant thoughts.  After all, we want our Girls to be Happy Om Girls!  
 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that stops people from moving.

Can you imagine not being able to play sport, run or even walk?

At Om Athletix we contribute a % of our profits to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to help try to find a cure for this debilitating disease. We are honored to help their efforts, and you should be too, since you are helping as well!

For every purchase you make with us, you are helping to make a difference for those who have MS and may not be able to play the sports they love and want to.....or even to just walk a few feet.

  • MS typically strikes between the ages of 20 and 40 and lasts a lifetime.
  • Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving hope to people affected by the disease.
