    I am really excited to be taking my love of lacrosse into my work here with Lax World. My first task was to compose a list of the Top 10 Things I Learned Playing Girls Lacrosse, and it was hard for me to even narrow it down to 10 items. Working with a variety of coaches and teammates of all different skill levels helped me learn something new from each experience. I currently play Division II lacrosse at Millersville University and all of my experiences, current and past, have shaped how I view the game and life in general. The items below are what I believe are the biggest keys to success in girls lacrosse. Continue reading

    While a successful draw depends on many factors, the performance of your head is a major component due to the direct contact with the ball. Any elite midfielder knows that equipment plays a major role in winning the draw. When looking for a head matching the talents of an elite player, nothing can compare to the performance of the new Exult 500. Created by STX, the Exult 500 provides three major strengths, stiffness of the sidewalls, C-channel technology, and a pinched design. Continue reading

  • What Goggles are Right for You?

    What Goggles are Right for You?

    Lacrosse is one of those sports men and women play a little differently. For example, the lacrosse sticks for girls have distinctive pockets. Stick size varies by position in boy’s lacrosse, but women all carry a stick between 35.5 inches to 43.25 inches. One key difference between the sexes is protective gear. Whereas men wear helmets, ladies need only worry about lacrosse goggles. Continue reading

  • Buyers Guide: Girls Lacrosse Gear

    Girls Lacrosse Protective Gear

    Girls lacrosse is an exciting and enjoyable sport, but you need the proper gear to protect yourself while you play. The lacrosse gear you will need varies based on the position you play. Below is some helpful information you can use to ensure that you buy all of the girls lacrosse gear you need to stay active and safe while out on the field.

    Protective Gear

    Women's lacrosse doesn't include as much contact as men's lacrosse, so less protective gear is required to keep players safe. In most leagues, mouth guards and eye goggles are the only items of protective gear required for play. However, most players also invest in gloves to protect their hands.

    Mouthguard

    Mouth guards for women are strapless and mold to the shape of each player's mouth. A variety of sizes and styles are available based on your preferences. After purchasing a mouth guard you can mold it to your mouth by boiling it in water until it becomes soft and then biting down on it to create the right shape. A properly fitted mouth guard is crucial for protecting your teeth and mouth correctly.

    Goggles

    Many different styles of goggles are available to protect your eyes during play. When choosing your goggles, make sure that the pair you select meets legal specifications, provides ample visibility and fits comfortably. Most players agree that goggles with silicone padding like the DeBeer Lucent SI Goggles are most comfortable and fit more securely.

    Gloves

    Though gloves are not required for most women's leagues, they provide protection and comfort for the hands. They are also helpful for gripping the stick when the weather is wet or cold. When choosing gloves, look for a pair that is padded on the back of the thumb and hand for better protection. Make sure that the gloves you purchase aren't too thick or heavy, as this will reduce flexibility. Finally, make sure that the wrist closure is secure and functions properly.

    Cleats

    Cleats are not usually required by league rules, but they can be very helpful on the field. Traction is important in lacrosse, and girls lacrosse cleats can provide the stability needed for running on virtually any surface. Choose cleats that fit comfortably and grip the ground well without sticking.

    Extra Gear for Goalies

    If you are playing girls lacrosse as a goalie, you will need some additional protective gear, including body pads and goalie gloves.

    Helmets

    Helmets are the most important piece of protective gear for a female goalie. You want to make sure the helmet fits your head snugly, yet does not press against your skull. Manufacturers offer recommendations for helmet size so make sure to look at those before deciding. A helmet that is too big will readjust as you play, making you more susceptible to injury, whereas a helmet that is too tight can cause headaches.

    Body Pads

    Body pads are designed to protect your body from the impact of any shots that may hit you. Choose strong foam pads that fit you well without restricting your movement too much. It's also wise to choose pads with a ventilated fabric to wick moisture away from your skin and keep you more comfortable.

    Goalie Gloves

    Goalie gloves closely resemble field gloves, but they provide even more protection for the thumb. Goalie Gloves are also more effective for absorbing impact. Though they may be more expensive, it's typically wise to choose a higher end glove. More expensive gloves typically offer more comfort, flexibility and protection. They are also more durable. However, if you cannot afford a higher end glove, basic gloves will provide the protection you need to play the game.

    You can purchase all of the necessary girls lacrosse gear from the girls lacrosse section of LaxWorld.com.
