What Equipment Do Players Need to Provide? What Does the Club Provide?
Lacrosse is not an Arizona Interscholastic Association ("AIA") sanctioned high school sport which means schools do not provide any financial support or equipment. Players are responsible for their own equipment. Fortunately many options exist regarding equipment purchases. Great used equipment can be found from players already in the program so ask your friends. Below is a list of standard equipment each player (other than goalie) will require:
Helmet (Only Varsity 1 players are required to wear the following helmet color scheme: Shell Color: RED, Chin Color: WHITE, Chin Strap: RED, WHITE, or BLACK. There are no specific required helmet options for players on other teams)
Stick - Shaft and Head
Rib Pads (optional)
Mouth Guards (2)
Where Can We Buy New Equipment?
Opportunities exist either on-line or locally. Dick's Sporting Goods is a good option for beginner equipment packages. Additionally there are web-based retailers; such as LacrosseMonkey, Lax.Com and Lacrosse Unlimited.
