Quiz the Coach :: Lacrosse Gear List

Question by waka.


Hey coach, I'm playing winter lacrosse this year to get ready for the spring. What gear am I gonna need? Could you make the list inclusive as possible? Thanks


Purple and Blue Bruises

This is a good question because Lacrosse is the one sport where a defender is actually allowed to hit you with his stick. That’s a prescription for purple… unless you have the right gear!


Sharp Shoes

Let’s start with your running shoes. Most shoe stores don’t carry shoes for lacrosse. If you can’t find lacrosse shoes, I would go with basketball shoes. When you’re running in a Lacrosse game, it’s actually very similar to how basketball players run. There’s lots of pivoting, stop and go. Ankle support is key!


Purchasing Padding

Cross-CheckingCross-Checking

Now to stop those vicious cross-checks from making dents on your body. Here’s a list of all the pads you can buy to make life easier.


  • Shoulder Pads
  • Elbow Pads
  • Wrist guards (optional)
  • Gloves
  • Rib Pads (optional)
  • Helmet (certified for lacrosse organization)
  • Stick
  • Mouth Guard (helps prevent concussions)

Lacrosse players don’t wear any leg padding for some reason. I guess it restricts mobility and speed. If it were me, I would probably wear a couple of tensor bandages on my knees just to prevent all the rug burns.

Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)
