Probably one of the most asked questions, what equipment does my player need?
We know that it might be confusing with all the different styles, colors and brands of gear out there. We suggest keep it simple and affordable. Here is a basic list of required gear.
If you have any questions or need help, feel free to ask
For Boys Lacrosse
- boys lacrosse stick
- arm guards
- chest protector
- Helmet - make sure the helmet fits well.
- mouthguard + 1 extra
- protective cup
- cleats (no baseball cleats)
- water bottle
Helmet Safety note
Players should try on the gear for proper fit, especially the helmet. Most items can be picked up used via craigslist but take warning on using used helmets. Make sure they have their safety sticker intact and that the helmet fits your player. The helmet is the number one safety equipment to take seriously. Most helmets have a 3-5 year life cycle. Buyer by ware. If in doubt, buy a new one.
For Girls Lacrosse
- girls lacrosse stick
- mouthguard +1 extra
- cleats (soccer cleats work best)
- gloves (optional)
- water bottle
As the rules of girls lacrosse, there is less contact and checking involved as the boys game. This is the reason why the girls do not wear all the padding as the boys do. However, some parents might need the peace of mind to outfit their player with a "soft head gear" protection.
