There are many options for lacrosse gear. When just getting started, checkout the beginner packs from TeamLax or Lacrossemonkey.com. We recommend going to a lacrosse specific store as well vs Dick's Sports or Academy as they have employees that understand the game and can stear you in the right direction. 

Even with the beginner packs, we'd recommend selecting one of the following heads. For new players, look at the Offensive heads. 

When picking helmet color, go with black first, white second. Granted, you can wear any color so don't worry if you don't have a choice.

Following is a list of gear for those looking to upgrade specific items. 

 

 

HEADS: Although lacrosse heads can be expensive, we believe a quality head can be very beneficial to players of all ages. Also, different heads translate better to different positions. For example, a defensive head should be wider than an offensive head due to an easier ability to pick up ground balls. Offensive head should be slightly narrower to protect the ball better against checks. Below you will find head recommendations.

SHAFTS: Depending on the age of a player the $50 shafts work just as good as the $100 - $200 shafts. The key is finding a shaft that looks good based on personal preferences. Once a player enters high school or the college level of play, we recommend selecting a stronger lighter material. From experience we would recommend any type of scandium or titanium shaft.

GLOVES: The most important feature of the lacrosse glove is flexibility. The player should try out different gloves to find one that fits him well, where he is able to move his fingers easily and grasp the lacrosse shaft with no issues. Here are a few pairs that we believe work very well.

ARM PADS: These usually vary by position as well, but again it comes down to player preference. For offensive players, we recommend getting larger arm pads to cover as much of the arm as possible to protect against stick checks. For defensive players, we recommend arm pads that are slightly smaller for greater mobility.

SHOULDER PADS: Like arm pads and gloves, shoulder pads are all about personal preference. However, we believe having a light pair of shoulder pads with protection are the two most important factors you should look for when choosing the right pair. Below are a few recommendations for shoulder pads.

HELMETS: We fully support any type of Cascade helmet. They have been in the game for decades and we believe they make the best helmet today. Any type of Cascade helmet will be great for all ages.
