Lacrosse is a contact sport with metal sticks and solid rubber balls. Each Player is required to wear the following equipment on the field at all times.

Mandatory equipment list 8u, 10u, 12u, and 14u players:

  • Lacrosse Stick
  • Lacrosse Helmet - NOCSAE Approved
  • Mouth Guard

Much of this equipment can be had for free from current families, who often donate out-grown equipment - email us to ask!

New equipment can be purchased locally, at Dick's Sporting Goods, or online at numerous vendors, including Lacrosse Unlimited, Lax.com, or Lacrosse Monkey, among several others. Most online vendors sell complete 'starter kits' that include all the necessary equipment.

Coaches are happy to help with adjusting equipment for the proper fit.
