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.

Kobe Bryant is a better PG, no doubt. Lebron is better as an all-around player. So, who? Can't say.
