Defensemen with the new STX Hammer 500 are the best wall.

A lacrosse starter package is the easiest way to get into playing today. Our expert team has created these all-in-one kits include all you need. Basic packages begin with all protective gear, or move up to the deluxe kits that include complete sticks, gear bags and helmets.
You can’t shoot at a target you can’t hit. That's why we've created this easy beginners guide to lacrosse goals and nets.
Lacrosse goals for outdoor play will be 6’ tall x 6’ wide x 7’ deep with 1.5” pipes. The standard gameplay color for lacrosse goals is orange, however for a backyard goal it can be any color. A typical box lacrosse goal will be 4’ tall x 4’ wide x 4’ deep.
Most goals will come with a 2.5MM or 3MM net which is laced to the pipes. While a 2.5MM net does not last an extremely long time, especially if facing strong weather conditions, a 3MM net holds up very well for backyard play, and is recommended for early entry.
You can also use 4MM, 5MM, or 6MM nets. 4MM is fantastic if you have multiple athletes shooting on the cage or even just a dedicated elite athlete that is consistently testing the net. 5MM and 6MM are commonly used for official game play.
For practice play, you can also use bounce-back walls. Playing on these walls are like having a person passing the ball to you. This is perfect for learning how to catch or perfecting your shooting and catching skills.
Whatever your lacrosse goal and net buying needs are, you can guarantee that we’ll have them at Lax World. For more information check out our gear guide for goalies.
In different the different types of lacrosse games, you will find these color balls:

• Orange - Used in the indoor game
All balls, no matter what level of play, must meet the standards set forth by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) if they are to be used in an official game. These standards include: Continue reading →
US Lacrosse recently published an Equipment Fitting Guide to help provide first-time buyers, parents and players with suggested guidelines in purchasing equipment. Designed to help both the boys’ and girls’ youth player, the guide explains how lacrosse equipment should feel when properly worn.
As it is with any sport, athletes who play lacrosse are susceptible to injury. Throw in the fact that lacrosse is somewhat of a contact sport, and played with metal sticks, and you're dealing with a variety of potential injuries for the average player. With that being said, while there is the potential for injury in lacrosse, there's also a plethora of protective equipment that the laxer should be wearing to keep themselves as safe as possible at all times - such as gloves, helmets, and shoulder pads. Proper preparation can also help one to avoid injury.
Here's a look at some of the more common lacrosse injuries, as well as what - if anything - can be done to help prevent them: Continue reading →
