Information on player equipment
Boys are required to wear helmets, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads and a mouth piece. Athletic supports w/ cups are also recommended. No leg gear is needed. Soccer or football cleats are the appropriate footwear. A lacrosse stick is also needed. Goalies use a wider stick than normal. Hockey equipment can be substituted for much of what is required.
Limited sets of loaner equipment (except stick) will be made available to U7 and U9 players with a refundable $75 deposit upon request. First come first served.
Girls are required to wear eye guards and a mouth piece. Girls also need lacrosse sticks. Girl's sticks differ from boy's sticks slightly in that girl's sticks have no real pocket. Soccer cleats are the appropriate footwear. Goalies use a wider stick than normal along w/ a helmet, gloves and chest protector.
