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.

i wanted to make this post for those interested in fitness. you can post anything, whether that be sports match you saw , weight training, a marathon you want to run, progress you've made, or even questions and advice on goals you want to achieve (though i might not be a professional, i think i've listened to enough and have read enough by specialist and professionals to help others). good luck to all that are trying to improve themselves.

I do hip hop dancing and I'm also good at robot dancing. I'm not sure what it's called when people dance like when they move their bones in a way that makes it hit every beat in any electronic beat. But go on my profile and look at the video on there I posted and that's the type of dance I do along with hip hop.

Who's better? I vote FC Barcelona because Messi, Neymar and Suares are SUPER POWER (but not in Italy).
