Lacrosse Stick - there are a wide variety of sticks available at various price points. Our players, no matter what age, have had the best success with the STX Crux family of sticks. What sets these sticks apart is the soft pocket which helps players develop their craddling, passing, catching and shooting skills at a rapid rate. Mastering these skills is critical to the success and enjoyment of the sport. Every year we have players who buy a beginner stick, struggle unnecessarily, borrow a non-beginner stick and have a break through game. By this point, they have lost 4 weeks of development, their parents end up buying the better stick and out the cost of two sticks. There are some good deals on-line if you shop around on-line for the best price or you can pick up at Thompson's.
Goggles - these are mandatory and it is personal preference on what style you choose. US Lacrosse also allows players to wear sport glasses. Here is a complete list of authorized goggles and sport glasses.
Mouthguards - these are mandatory and may not be clear. It is important to have a proper fitting mouthguard to prevent injury and your daughter from ruining it from chewing on it.
Helmets - Helmets are not mandatory for girls at this time. If your daughter would like to wear a helmet please choose from one of the two approved helmets.
Goggles, mouth guards and lacrosse sticks are mandatory and cleats and/or turf shoes are recommended for each practice. Googles must be worn immediately upon stepping on the turf or grass for all players protection. Helmets are optional at the time.
During March and April, it is common that the temperature may be warm at the start of practice but quickly drop into the 30s once the sun sets. All players must wear a wind jacket, sweatshirt, sweatpants (or windpants), gloves and a hat. Players will not be allowed to practice if these items are not worn. It is permittable to drop layers after practice starts if your daughter is too warm.
