    Set of men's lacrosse equipment

    Between lacrosse sticks, helmets, arm and shoulder pads, athletic shoes, and gloves, outfitting the lacrosse player with the proper equipment can certainly add up. And while these large up-front expenses can be a preventing factor in taking up the sport for many, equipment today is being made at a higher quality than it ever has before, ensuring it lasts longer, so you’ll have to upgrade and replace less.

    With that being said, here’s a quick pricing guide to lacrosse equipment:

    The Stick

    The lacrosse stick is the most important part of a laxer’s arsenal, and should be the starting point when you’re shopping for gear. Most experienced lacrosse players purchase their stick heads and stick shafts separately to further customize it to their personal preferences, but it is possible to buy complete lacrosse sticks, typically starting around $40. The majority of laxers, however, elect to purchase their head and shafts separately. It’s typically more expensive – heads range anywhere from $35 to over $100 and shafts are divided by position (midfield, attack, goalie and defense). Like heads, prices on shafts range, typically beginning around $60 to upwards of $100. Continue Reading

    If your child shows an interest in lacrosse, ensuring that he or she has a positive lacrosse experience should be your main goal as a parent. Your support and encouragement will be essential, and to best support your child, you’ll need to learn as much as possible about the game.

    History of the Game

    Lacrosse originated with the American Indians, starting as a male team sport. While the rules varied among various tribes, the one rule that was observed by all was that the hands could not touch the ball. The lacrosse stick used varied between southeastern, northeastern and Great Lakes tribes. For example, the Great Lakes tribes, such as the Santee Dakota and Potawatomi, used a stick that was three-feet long, while southeastern tribes used two sticks that were two-and-a-half feet long. Not only did American Indians use the game recreationally, but the games were also surrounded in ceremonialism. Today, lacrosse continues to grow in popularity, growing faster than any other sport in the United States. Continue Reading

    A major part of playing lacrosse is definitely about strength and stamina, but if you want to win, you've got to have the speed, too.

Being a better lacrosse player means taking advantage of all aspects of training in order to increase the speed of the ball and the efficiency of scoring. Continue Reading
