Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment does my child need in order to play?
For boys, a certified lacrosse helmet, protective pads, a lacrosse stick, and a mouthguard are required for all players. Girls require regulation helmet or protective eyeguards, a mouthguard and a stick. All goalies require additional protection.
US Lacrosse recently published an Equipment Fitting Guide to help provide first-time buyers, parents and players with suggested guidelines in purchasing equipment.
Designed to help both the boys’ and girls’ youth player, the guide explains how lacrosse equipment should feel when properly worn. Photographs and descriptions for both field players and goalies are featured. Click here to download the guide.
What are the rules in girls and boys lacrosse?
Lacrosse is a new sport to many of our players and parents. In order to understand the rules of the game, there are online rules guides for both girls and boys. Note that the rules vary slightly at different age levels, as well as for college players.
As for rules that apply to our youth program, our girls and boys programs and our local leagues follow the rules and guidelines as published by US Lacrosse. The rules of lacrosse govern games and equipment used. Learn more here.
