What equipment does my daughter need?
1. A lacrosse stick
Make sure you buy a girl’s stick. The pocket - or netting part - of a boy’s stick is much deeper. The regulation pocket of a girl’s lacrosse stick is legal if the ball remains even with or above the plastic walls of the head when held parallel to the ground.
If you buy a stick with a metal shaft, it is easy to cut to adjust for the correct size. We can help you determine the correct size at practice.
Eye protection is required. The player must wear eye protection at all games and practices. The most popular types of eye protection are metal cages.
3. Mouth guard (without a tab)
Required at every game and practice. It is good to own more than one.
4. Cleats or Turf Shoes
Optional but a good idea. At the older levels (5th grade and up) most girls wear cleats or turf shoes. Soccer cleats work fine but there are also specific lacrosse cleats. Metal spiked cleats are NOT allowed.
5. Lacrosse gloves
Optional, but handy during the cold early weeks of March and April. Lacrosse gloves are padded and are sometimes fingertipless.
6. Water bottle or sports drink is also necessary for every practice and game.
