Where and what to buy for new lacrosse players

Selecting the proper gear for your child can be a daunting task. We're here to guide you through the process, so you'll be an expert in no time.

 

Boys' Gear list:

  • Helmet
  • Gloves
  • Arm Guards or Pads
  • Shoulder pads
  • Cleats
  • Mouth guard
  • Athletic cup
  • Stick
  • Rib pads (optional)
  • Gear bag (optional)

When shopping for your son's first set of gear, please consider the following:

  1. There are three levels of protection for a player's arms: arm guards, arm pads and elbow guards/pads. We do not recommend elbow guards/pads for youth lacrosse.
  2. When your child reaches the U12 age bracket, it may be time to consider a backup stick. Your son should be using his stick 2-3 times per week outside of regularly scheduled practices by this point.
  3. U8 & U10 Boys should consider youth sized sticks by StringKing, Powell, Signature or Warrior
  4. SIZING: https://www.sportstop.com/size-charts
  5. Helmet brands have varying shelf lives according to the manufacturer. Cascade helmets are generally good for 1-2 years before requiring a recertification. Warrior helmets are certified for 5 years from the date of manufacturer. Always best to buy a new or lightly used helmet for your son.
