  • Helmet – Lacrosse specific

  • Goalies MUST wear a throat guard and can optionally wear shin guards, knee pads, and thigh pads. Goalie gear is loaned to players by the club.

  • The most important item for your player is his helmet. Poorly fitting helmets can be extremely uncomfortable and can completely affect his desire to play. We encourage you NOT to buy your son’s first helmet online. Please attempt to try on equipment before purchasing. Helmet comfort by brand & model tends to vary dramatically between kids.  Gloves are the second most important fit item for boys. They help your son retain good control of the stick while protecting his hands. 
  • The cost for the entire set of equipment will range from $200 - $350.

  • Lightweight cleats (football or soccer are fine). No steel or baseball cleats.
  • Goalies MUST wear a helmet with face mask, a separate throat protector, padded gloves, a mouthpiece, a chest protector, and padding on the shins and thighs. Goalie gear is loaned to players by the club.
