  • A Beginner's Guide to Necessary Lacrosse Equipment

    Have you ever wondered where lacrosse got its origins? Its origins date as far back as a Native American game played by young warriors to prepare them for battle when games could have 100 to 1,000 players. Today's version has 10 players per team and requires specific safety gear. Beginners should consider the following equipment to get started in Lacrosse:

    Gloves: Hits on the hands are common in beginner lacrosse, so well padded lacrosse gloves are a must.

    Arm and Elbow Pads: Protect the arms from opponents' slashing lacrosse sticks. Look for well padded but flexible dense foam arm pads for maximum protection.

    Forearm Pads: These pads fill the gap between the gloves and the arm pads.

    Cleats: High-top lacrosse cleats are designed to stay on during a game (versus cleats from other sports).

    Shoulder Pads: These pads should fully protect the shoulders and also extend hard padding down the chest.

    Rib Pads: Some players wear these to protect their ribs and kidneys from poke checks; however, some players find them to be too bulky.

    Lacrosse Balls: Stock up on the hard rubber balls used in lacrosse for practice sessions.

    Helmet: Protecting your head is crucial in this tough sport with lots of contact.

    Mouth Guard: Protect the teeth from errant elbows and sticks; buy one that can attach to the helmet.

    Groin Protection: Also known as a "cup", is vital for male players.

    Lacrosse Stick: Beginner sticks have large, wide heads with soft mesh for easier catching; however, they offer less control and durability than an aluminum stick with hard mesh. Advanced lacrosse sticks have a titanium shaft, premium head, hard mesh and custom stringing.

    Optional Items

    Lacrosse Goal and Net: It’s always good to have your own lacrosse goal on hand so you can practice during your own free time.

    Lacrosse Shooting Targets: Start learning to aim your shot and hit your corners with a Target to put in front of your goal.

  • 5 Benefits of Lacrosse for Kids

    If you are lucky enough to have a child that expresses interest in playing lacrosse, you can look forward to a lot of things. There are a number of benefits to playing the sport that can make a world of difference for the average youngster. From improved mental acuity, increased fitness, socialization and team building, lacrosse is the perfect sport for kids to play – and it is fun to watch for parents as well.

    Mental Acuity

    Lax World Mental Acuity

    It takes discipline to play lacrosse, a trait your child is sure to strengthen should he or she play with consistency. Like any sport, lacrosse may look to outsiders like a simple ball game with a lot of running up and down a field, but the tactics for successful play and the skill development needed to play will take time and persistence to develop.

    Not only will your child develop mental discipline, he or she will also reap the benefits provided by regular exercise. Regular exercise has been shown to improve mental performance time and again, and lacrosse is no exception. This can benefit both mood and performance in school.

    Increased Fitness

    Lacrosse is a sport that requires a serious level of fitness. Even kids games involve continuous running and sprinting, as well as throwing and catching – all of which keep the heart rate up and the lungs working. This cardiovascular exercise will keep your child fit and strong for the remainder of the time he or she plays the sport; and this is just during the game.

    When not playing, your child will be training. Lacrosse training demands skill development, cardiovascular exercise and strength training. Competition requires performing at your peak, and your child’s lacrosse coach will do the best he or she can to keep players fit and strong.

    It must be noted that lacrosse is an age appropriate sport. If your child is relatively young, the games and the training will be far more focused on fun than on top-tier performance – as they should be. But even at beginning levels, lacrosse will teach your child the fundamentals of physical fitness and the joy of healthy play.


    Team sports are an excellent way to teach social interaction and how to work with others. Each team is only as strong as its weakest link, making every member an important component of overall team performance. Lacrosse will teach your child to set goals and accomplish those goals with the help of others, a vital real-world skill.

    Overcoming obstacles within a team is also a good way to develop lifelong friendships. Your child will probably develop strong bonds with his or her teammates. This can make the harder years of schooling a little bit easier.

    Productive Habits

    Devoting time to lacrosse can also teach your child the power of productive habits. The work that goes into the game, including regular practice, teamwork and giving it your all, will teach your child the value of adopting habits that are beneficial. Not every child is lucky enough to experience lessons like these early in life – lessons that can make all the difference as an adult.

    Regular practice, healthy eating, getting enough rest, overcoming mistakes and failure – all of these habits can be learned through lacrosse, and are the same habits that separate top performers in the real world.


    One area where lacrosse players benefit is in the training of fine-tuned coordination. Catching a little ball in a cupped net, especially in the middle of a game, is much more difficult than it looks. Combine running, jumping and blocking, and you have a recipe for coordination that will benefit your child for a lifetime.

  • When Should I Buy a Complete Stick vs. Building My Own?

    The decision to buy or build your lacrosse stick may seem not important or simple, but there are many different factors that impact when it is best to purchase the complete stick vs. building one from different pieces.

    Limiting Building at the Beginning

    Building a complete lacrosse stick may not be as time consuming as it was in past generations, but it is still a process that requires knowledge of the game and all of the rules. Beginners should avoid building a lacrosse stick personally and opt for a completed stick. Continue reading

    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
