Visit the USA Lacrosse equipment page for information about certifications and helmet fitting guides. The SEI web site has a list of certified helmets and Commotio Cordis Protectors chest/shoulder pads.

* The team makes a bulk purchase in conjunction with the high school team. We are able to purchase better helmets for less than retail. If you want to purchase a helmet on your own, try to get black (white is OK). Also be aware that helmets are certified for three years, unless they have been refurbished.

** Defensive players can use crosses between 52 and 72 inches long. Before spending money on a defensive stick (long pole) check with your coach.

*** There are "Lacrosse" cleats on the market, but any athletic cleat will work well for youth players. If you don't get lacrosse cleats, we suggest football cleats, over soccer cleats, because football cleats have the toe stud.

Goalies need different equipment. Please ask your coach for more information.
