  • Lacrosse Arm Guards and Arm Pads... Are They the Same?

    Posted on October 9, 2014 by Lax World

    Brine lacrosse arm guardLacrosse is a high contact sport with players whacking each other with their sticks, and protecting the arms is critical during play. Although the differences between protective arms guards and protective arm pads are subtle, position and level of play often determine which is more suitable.

    Arm pads provide good protection and have less padding than arm guards. These pads protect from the middle lower of the bicep to the upper part of the forearm along with elbow protection. Arms pads are a good choice for lacrosse players who don’t mind getting checked and for those who want optimal mobility. While all positions can use arm pads, two-way midfielders are the most common. Since defense positions are rarely on the receiving end of checks and impact, these players often wear small arm pads. Continue Reading

    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

    History of the Game

    Lacrosse originated with the American Indians, starting as a male team sport.

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. Beginning players practice for endless hours, perfecting their stance and learning the angles, but some never reach the velocity they want when it comes to shooting the ball.
