    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. From the basic rules to the lacrosse gear they’ll needs, this guide will give you the information needed to help your child have an exciting, safe time while engaging in this sport.

    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

  • Lacrosse Tips: How to Throw a Lacrosse Ball Faster

    sequence of person throwing lacrosse ball

    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. Increasing the speed when throwing a ball is a complex challenge, and not all of them have to do with practicing with a stick. 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

  • Rise of the Lady Laxer: The Growth of Women's Lacrosse

    The Rise of women's lacrosseTypically, when you think of major sports in America, the "big four" come to mind: hockey, baseball, basketball and football. But since the turn of the century, the country's fastest growing sport has been lacrosse. Specifically in the participation in high school lacrosse, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations. High school participation grew 528 percent from 1990 to 2008. Needless to say, that's more growth than any other sport has experienced within the same timeframe.

    So just what can be attributed to this massive growth? There's the game itself, a hockey-meets-soccer hybrid that's fun and affordable to play, it’s also easy to pick up. Just lifting up a stick and trying the game out can become addicting. But then there's another big factor that is continuing to contribute to the game's growth — the popularity of the sport among female players. Continue reading

    Logo of Lax World

    At Lax World, we’ve worked hard over the years to build the ultimate one-stop shop for all of your lacrosse accessories, equipment and clothing needs. If an individual needs a particular type of stick or an apparel item, for example, we feel it’s important for them to know that they can come to us with any needs or concerns that they may have. Lax World is proud to take that relationship even further with the Official Team Store. If you’re the coach of a lacrosse team, or are a parent who is in charge of buying large amounts of equipment, apparel or other items, it represents a great opportunity that can’t be ignored.

    With the Lax World Team Store, we have committed to selling jerseys, gear, equipment and other items to lacrosse teams of all levels. What’s even better than that, however, is the fact that everything you order is fully customizable. You can use the Lax World Team Store online form to create custom lacrosse team jerseys, lacrosse apparel packages and more.

    The major benefit of going through the Team Store for large orders rather than through the general Lax World site has to do with the price. The goal of the Team Store is to make it as affordable as possible to outfit your team for what you need. If you’re ordering equipment or accessories for your entire team, you can expect to pay discounted prices as a result.

    Not only that, but the Lax World Team Store continues our tradition of offering the best brands, regardless of the type of item you’re ordering. We offer equipment, clothing and accessories from companies like Brine, STX, Warrior, Nike and more.

    Anything that you can order through the larger Lax World site can also be processed as a team order through the Team Store. If you need protective equipment for each member of your team, for example, we can take care of you and get your players the gear they need. If your youth lacrosse team needs a new jersey or a team shirt, we’ll take care of all of those needs and more.

    More so than providing the best products and services in the industry, at Lax World we’re committed to providing the best possible experience to our customers. If our customers aren’t happy, we aren’t happy. That extends both to our individual customers and to coaches, parents and other types of people who may need to place larger orders to take care of every member of a team.

    When placing team orders through the Lax World Team Store, it’s important to understand that you will need to place a minimum order of 12 items. If you’re ordering jerseys, for example, you will need to order at least 12 for the order to be successfully processed. After you’ve reached that limit, you can order as many as you’d like depending on the needs of your team.

    You can place an order with the Lax World Team Store both online using a Team Store account and in person at one of our stores.

    To find out more information about the Lax World Team Store, or to address any other question or concern that you may have, don’t hesitate to contact us today.
