Lacrosse Gear Kids Need To Have To Play
Lacrosse gear is important to your child’s protection and the game. Gear can be very expensive and comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. Goggles are important to protect the girls eyes and a mouth guards is required for high school players. Mouth guards are a cheap way to protect those expensive smiles. Cleats are functional shoes that provide added traction for quick movements. Arguable the most important piece of equipment is the stick. The stick is very customizable and unique representation of the player.
The lacrosse head is the most important piece of equipment for any lacrosse player on the field. Each player's head is unique to the style of play of their game and a player's pocket can be adjusted to provide more control or a quicker release.
The pockets of women's lacrosse head are shallower than those of the men, making the ball more difficult to catch and to shoot at high speed. The pockets also make it harder to cradle without dropping the ball.
The lacrosse head can either come strung or unstrung. Most lacrosse heads are strung with nylon mesh and will require a short break in period before play. Unstrung heads will need be strung before being used for play. There are many stringing kit options available. Most lacrosse heads are offset, curved or canted to allow for more ball control and each head is made up of a scoop (top of the head), a unique sidewall and a throat area that attaches on to the lacrosse shaft. Find more information about lacrosse heads.
Women's lacrosse rules are specifically designed to limit physical contact between players. As a result of the lack of contact, the only protective equipment required are goggles/face guard and a mouth guard. Players must wear eye protection according to US Lacrosse rules.
Mouth guards are required for play. This is a very important piece of equitment that protects those expensive teeth and mouth. Mouth guards can not be clear or white. I would suggest not getting green either because they are easily lost. Common cleats are either lacrosse, football, or soccer. Sheldon prefers that players get cleats in our color scheme. Astro turf cleats are not required but they are nice to have depending on the field of play.
