  • Girl's Lacrosse Gear: No Boys Club

    June 23, 1972 - No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.

    It’s been forty years since Title IX opened up countless doors for female athletes on all levels. Over the last four decades girls’ high school sports has grown almost ten-fold. Naturally, there’s also been a corresponding growth on the college level, with 10 times the number of female college athletes as there were in 1972 when the act was passed.

    As lacrosse grows rapidly around the US, it’s especially astounding to see how far women’s lacrosse has come as it evolves just as rapidly as the boys’ game. As both games evolve, so does their lacrosse gear. Girls’ lacrosse equipment caters specifically to the girls’ game from girls’ lacrosse sticks, to lacrosse goggles and even a unique take on lacrosse apparel.

    In honor of four decades of progress, Lax World salutes some of our favorite Women’s Lax college programs – including this year’s champ, Northwestern!

  • Boh Knows Lacrosse

    Baltimore – the Land of Pleasant Living.  Many consider this city to be the lax capital of the world. Sure, the last decade has seen the sport grow across the country, from New England to the Colorado. But many (outside of Virginia) would argue that Maryland is the heart of the national lacrosse community.  After all, it’s the state’s official team sport.

    Is there a better brand, symbol or image to represent this city than Mr. Boh of National Bohemian fame? Natty Boh lacrosse gear captures the essence of this city and gives lacrosse fans in Maryland and beyond an icon they can hold on to. Lacrosse apparel that bare Mr.Boh’s face (from shirts to socks to shorts) has taken off in popularity from coast to coast. Here are some of our personal favorites from Lax World:

  • Lax Performance Apparel: Stay Cool Under Pressure

    Summer is here – for some of you that means it’s time to hang up the jerseys and lacrosse pads until next season. But for many of you – the offseason means it’s time to sweat even more. Think about how many sports greats have given inspirational quotes saying how important the offseason is:

    “I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion'. “
    - Muhammad Ali

    “It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
    Babe Ruth

    “I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.”
    Michael Jordan

    Whether you’re at lacrosse camp, playing in club or travel leagues, or just out on the field by yourself running gassers and taking shots on an empty net; if you’re working hard in the offseason, you’re going to sweat.

    Performance apparel & gear is key during the warmer months – you need apparel that wicks away moisture and is engineered for maximum control and comfort. Cotton can be killer if you’re sweating hard, especially if you’ve got pads on.

    Tech Polo - Performance Apparel - Warrior LacrosseWarrior lacrosse has mastered the art of performance gear and tech shirts. Designed to keep you cool on the field with Warrior Short Sleeve Training Tops and off the field with the Warrior Tech Polo.

    Stay cool while you work hard and have fun this offseason. Whether you’re playing year-round or just getting ready for next season, you can still look good while you sweat away the dog days of summer.

  • Lacrosse Helmet Buying Guide

    Lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet – and as lax players get bigger, stronger and faster, so do the checks. Protecting your head is as important as ever, especially with young players. With so much research emerging on concussions and head injuries – parents, coaches and you favorite lacrosse gear manufacturers are making an effort to protect player noggins.

    So the solution is simple – just wear a lacrosse helmet, right? We could only hope-so.

    How do you find a helmet that isn’t just safe, but comfortable, durable and breathable?

    Long-trusted manufacturers Cascade Lacrosse and Warrior Lacrosse have a wide range of time-tested customizable lacrosse helmets, as well as emerging advancements in Carbon Fiber helmets.

    Cascade has been in the lacrosse helmet racket for some time now – the fully customizable CPX-R has been able to offer superior protection without sacrificing comfort or convenience. The “One-Size-Fits-Most” customizable helmet uses “Seven Technology liner cushioning to compress and displace energy from a direct impact.” In English, it means check or pokes to the helmet won’t directly impact your head – meaning you can recover quickly and score on the guy who cheap-shot you.

    But if you’re looking for the latest in Carbon Fiber technology with one of the illest looks in lacrosse gear – Warrior Lacrosse is flipping the script on lax gear with the Warrior TII Helmet. The new helmet from the long-trusted lacrosse equipment brand comes equipped with large air vents for superior air-flow and it weighs under 2 lbs - meaning you’ll go flying.

    No matter your personal preference – you should be able to find the right helmet for your game shopping online or in-store with Lax World.

    5 Lacrosse Helmet Safety/Fitting Tips:

    Lacrosse Helmets Should… come marked NOCSAE approved. The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment tests and sets the standards for safe athletic equipment.

    Lacrosse Helmets Should… should sit squarely on your head. Padding of the helmet should give firm/uniform pressure around the player’s head. Test this by moving the helmet back and forth – the skin of the player’s forehead should move snug with it.

    Lacrosse Helmets Should…  have a four-point chin-strap attached – chin-straps should be tightened so that there is no slack.

    Lacrosse Helmets Should…  comfortably fit the size of a child’s head, taking their hairstyle into account. If your child has a great deal of thick hair and then receives a summer haircut, the helmet must then be refitted.

    Lacrosse Helmets Should… be checked before every game for dents, scratches and other external damage. Always remember to replace screws and t-nuts on the helmet at the beginning of each season.

  • Lacrosse Head Buying Guide

    Lacrosse Head - Lacrosse Stick - Lax World

    The head of your lacrosse stick is crucial no matter where you play on the field – what’s even more crucial is finding the best lacrosse head for your style of play.

    Buying a lacrosse shaft is one thing – you know based off your position whether you need a long pole or short pole. If you’re a sharp shooting attack or middie, you need a 30” pole – similarly, if you’re a shut down defender you might have a 60” long pole.

    But for some reason, nobody breaks down how to find the right lacrosse head: until now.


    First thing is first – you have to determine which heads are legal for use by youth, high school and college players. Universal heads can be used across all levels of play (NCAA, High School & Youth) but for all other heads, the big divides come between those that are allowed for NCAA play and those that are not. NCAA Heads have width requirements allowed on the college level that are not allowed by high school and youth lacrosse rules. Lacrosse heads from Lax World have legality requirements labeled to make your job easier.


    Level of play is one thing – but experience level plays a big role as well. Newer players, you probably want a head with a wide throat area so catching and passing become easier. Where as more experienced players, who have passing and catching down, may want a narrower throat for precision.


    Once you’ve figured out what types of heads are legal and best for your level – you can start building your perfect lax stick for your type of game. Next step, firmness – it may sound odd but not every head is built for the same style of player. This will affect defenders more than anyone – as they do less shooting and more hitting. Defenders: you want a firmer head.


    Attack & Middies – whether you’re a feeder that likes to rack up assists, a FOGO that dominates the X or you like to shoot from the point – you probably value control more than firmness. Good ball control is crucial for your game. For other great heads check out Lax World’s collection from Brine, STX and more.

  • Lax Gear for a Good Cause

    If you're like most lacrosse fans, you believe that lacrosse is more than just a sport; you see it as a major life-changer. Aside from honing your skills and instilling discipline, the bumps and bruises caused by errant lacrosse sticks has also changed your life for the better. It helped you become physically fit and mentally healthy. It taught you the concept of teamwork and the essence of leadership. And it has probably led to some of the strongest friendships in your life.

    So it's no surprise that lacrosse-centered charities are popping up all over the world, aiming to use lacrosse to change other people's lives, too. From raising cancer awareness to donating lacrosse gear to kids in need, there are different activities and programs where you can participate in proclaiming the benefits of lacrosse. They may even serve as an opportunity to share your lacrosse story and inspire others. Here are three lacrosse-related charities you can get involved in:

    Lacrosse the Nations

    Lacrosse the Nations is a non-profit organization dedicated to using lacrosse programs to encourage education in communities facing extreme poverty. It currently runs a lacrosse program in La Chureca, a trash dump community in Nicaragua. The charity uses both in-school and after-school lacrosse programs as a way to encourage children to attend school and eventually graduate from the School of Hope. Lacrosse the Nations also provides funding for nutritional in-school snacks and monthly field trips outside the community.

    The Headstrong Foundation

    When Division I athlete and talented Hofstra lacrosse player Nick Colleluori was diagnosed with blood cancer, he took no time to wallow in self-pity. Instead, he laid the groundwork for the Headstrong Foundation, a charitable organization that has raised over $2 million dollars to help find a cure for the disease. The organization seeks to raise awareness within the lacrosse community and provide scholarships for young athletes aiming to start a career in medicine. The foundation also sponsors popular lacrosse fundraising efforts, such as Laces for Lymphoma and Score for a Cure.

    The Starz Foundation

    The Starz Foundation seeks to support and develop lacrosse programs all over the western United States. The Foundation also provides financial assistance to student athletes in order to help them reach their lacrosse or collegiate goals. Starz runs a multi-faceted lacrosse equipment donation program in addition to providing scholarships and grants, free lacrosse demonstrations, and the City Starz Leadership Program.

    What You Can Do to Support and Foster Lacrosse in Your Community

    Lax Gear - Lacrosse Gear -

    Lacrosse has given so much to your life; now it's time to give back. You don't need the help of a specific charity to support lacrosse in your community. Instead, find ways to help support and develop lacrosse on your own terms. Dedicate time to an after-school program. Donate lacrosse sticks or lacrosse clothing to an athlete in need. Send LaxWorld gift cards to a fledgling lacrosse program or one of the aforementioned charities. Sponsor an underfunded team through LaxWorld's team Lacrosse apparel offerings.

    No matter how you choose to help, you can let LaxWorld help you spread your love of lacrosse throughout the world.

  • Lax Gear for Beginners

    So you've decided to take up lacrosse, eh? Good for you! Lacrosse is one of the most rewarding team sports on the planet. Along with strong muscles and incredible endurance, you'll find lacrosse's main benefits lie within the dedicated fan and player community of the sport.

    Unfortunately, becoming a member of the lacrosse community isn't as easy as, say, joining a soccer team. Lacrosse is a high contact sport: if you don't want to wind up with a broken limb or a concussion, you'll need some safety equipment before you start. Before you start panicking, relax. Lacrosse gear is only as expensive as you want it to be. If you're just looking to buy lacrosse equipment for your child or for casual use, you go right ahead. If you're looking to invest in some top-of-the-line lax gear, you can do that too.

    No matter your budget, here's a quick guide to everything you'll need before you hit the field:

     Lacrosse Sticks

    Lacrosse Sticks - Lax Gear -

    Your stick is one of the most important lacrosse equipment choices you'll make as a beginner lacrosse player. As you become more advanced in the sport, you can upgrade to more targeted, advanced sticks designed for your chosen position.

    As a beginner, however, you'll want to go for lacrosse sticks that make it as easy to catch the ball as possible. You'll probably want to choose a stick with a wider throat area in the head, which will give you a better chance of catching the ball. More advanced players can choose a narrower head for increased precision. You'll also want to choose a soft mesh instead of a stiffer meshing. Softer meshing makes it easier to catch and cradle the ball.

    If you're buying for a child, you'll want to look at plastic handles, since they're lightweight, durable, and inexpensive.

    Lastly, check with your league or school to find out length requirements. Not all manufacturers comply with standard measuring, so make sure your stick length is fully compliant before you buy.

    Protective Lacrosse Gear
    Lacrosse Equipment - Lax Gear -

    No team or league will let you start playing without proper protective gear. As a beginner player, consider getting stronger padding that will lessen pain and injuries as much as possible. You want learning lacrosse to be as pleasant of an experience as possible. Getting quality padding will help you play with more confidence, since you won't be as concerned with getting hurt.

    You'll need to invest in arm pads and shoulder pads before you start playing. Some leagues also require rib pads; goalies will need chest pads. All players need specific lacrosse gloves that protect against hand and wrist injuries.

    You'll also need a helmet with an attached mouthguard to protect your head, face, and teeth. Head injuries are no light matter: a helmet isn't the piece of equipment to skimp on.
