Our Pro advice for a lacrosse player that is just starting to play:
Gloves – need to be mobile and have thinner palms so new players can get a good feel for the stick. Even in the backyard, when not at practice, new players should practice in their gloves.
|SM||10″||8 -10||50 -70||44″-50″|
|LG||13″||13+||Over 120||55″ +|
Arm Pads– must have a top velcro attachment – most younger players have trouble with pads sliding down the arms. These Under Armour pads have nice, adjustable straps that close on the tops of the biceps and keep the pads secure.
|2 – 4||Under 40||Under 35″|
|Y-SM||4 – 7||
Shoulder Pads – Good sternum protection and plastic coated caps. Must have nice material to wear next to skin, not cheap stuff. Full range of arm motion and ability to have helmet mobility.
|2 – 4||Under 40||Under 35″|
|Y-SM||4 – 7||
Cascade CSR Helmet: The Cascade CSR Helmet offers an EPP liner system for elite level protection and comfort.
|CS,CSR||Youth||up to 22″ (558mm)|
|CPVR||S/M||21.5″ to 23″ (546mm to 584mm)|
|M/L||22′ to 23. 5″ (558mm to 596mm)|
A Guide to Kids’ Lacrosse Gear
For every young child who picks up a lacrosse stick for the first time, there is a parent in the background wondering how to make heads or tails out of all of the equipment required for the sport. Unlike sports such as basketball or soccer, lacrosse requires a lot of equipment before a player can even step foot on the field. As lacrosse continues to grow in popularity, there are more and more choices available in kids’ lacrosse gear. I took a poll from my son’s high school lacrosse team and came up with a “must have” lacrosse equipment list… according to my favorite lacrosse player and his team.
HelmetA no-brainer for kids’ lacrosse gear (pun intended), you want to look for a helmet that is vented, one piece for better vision, lighter weight and a fitting system which will allow for a customize fit. Make sure the helmet you choose is approved by NOCSAE, National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment.
Arm padsArm guards will vary in protection based on the position. Make sure pads are not too tight or too loose and that the elbow is entirely covered. For attack, we like Warrior Evo Pro.
Shoulder PadsThe shoulder protector should be light and move with the body. Warrior Evolyte is a good choice for comfort and function.
GlovesAll players are required to wear protective gloves. If you’re purchasing for a goalie, make sure to get goalie specific glove (comes with extra material in the thumb). Marverik Max gloves form to the hand and provide a cool air flow.
Mouth GuardA mouthpiece is mandatory lacrosse gear for kids and must be a bright color (no white or clear). SISU mouthguard is ultra thin and offers more protection while allowing the player to talk, drink water and breath naturally. SISU is also the official mouthguard of US Lacrosse!
ShaftWhen it comes to the stick, it can be a matter of personal preference. Titanium shafts are typically the strongest and aluminum shafts usually are the most lightweight. Scandium shafts offer a balance between the two. Make sure to have the correct length that correspondes to the player’s position. Defense – between 42-62 inches
Attack/Middie – between 30-32 inches
HeadChoosing the best head is a matter of preference, skill level and position. Here’s a great video of recommendations from our friends at ComLax:
CleatsCleats come in high tops for ankle support, or low-cut to provide the ankle more flexibility on the field. New Balance Freeze Cleats are built specifically for lacrosse.
stink DefenseAs a fellow sports parent, I know you are familiar with the foul stench of sweaty gear. Grab a pair of GloveStix to stick inside gloves and cleats to elimate the odor.
Fan gearBecause lacrosse season spans the tail end of winter and the last bit of spring, I dare say, you need to be prepared for 3 seasons of fanwear plus a good pair of rainboots. I wouldn’t be complete in the stands without my team hat, mittens, scarf, rain jacket and quarter zip. There are plenty of local companies that your team can work with to create a good line of spiritwear which can also be a nice fundraising opportunity for the team.
It is important to remember that lacrosse is a contact sport. Players can get hurt. But you can ruduce the risk of injury by wearing the right protective equipment.
Lacrosse Equipment Buying Guide Checklist
Your son or daughter has decided to try lacrosse for the first time and that’s awesome! But, as a company of parents and coaches, we understand that suiting up your young player for the first day of practice can also be a daunting task. Properly fitted equipment can help you and your little laxer enjoy his/her first lacrosse experience safely. That’s why at Swax Lax Lacrosse we’re here to help!
Lacrosse requires a few specific pieces of equipment, which varies by both age and gender, and we’ve put together the following buying guide to help walk you through what you’ll need.Girls Lacrosse Equipment Checklist Stick
Lacrosse sticks are made out of composite, metal alloy, wood, nylon, plastic and any other synthetic material with a head attached at the end. Beginner lacrosse sticks range from $25 to $60 and are made by different brands such as STX, Under Armour, Warrior, and Brine. There is not much difference between beginner sticks, but just be sure to buy a girls’ lacrosse stick. A helpful hint for first-time shoppers is that girls’ sticks have pockets made from string and leather thongs, whereas boys’ sticks have mesh pockets. First-time buying tips, including proper sizing, can be found here. No fiddlesticks/mini sticks.Goggles
Eyewear is made by numerous manufacturers. It is recommended your daughter tries on a few different pairs of goggles to see which one feels most comfortable. At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we do not require goggles until 3rd grade and above, but be sure to check with your lacrosse clinic or lacrosse program. We have lots of pairs to lend out, so no worries if you’d like to hold off purchasing them until you’re confident that your daughter is going to continue playing.Mouthguard
At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we require mouthguards for 3rd grade and above, but again, be sure to check with your local lacrosse program on their requirements. There are companies that make customized mouthguards that are more durable and longer lasting than traditional mouthguards. However, traditional mouthguards bought at a sporting goods store and molded with hot water at home will also do the trick and are financially a better option for younger players.Cleats/Turf Shoes
Many players choose to wear cleats on grass fields and regular sneakers or turf shoes on turf fields. Soccer cleats are acceptable; cleats do not have to be lacrosse specific. That said, most schools do not allow cleats inside since they could damage the gym floor.Gloves
Not mandatory, but some girls like to wear them all year round while others just wear them in the early months of the season because of the cold weather. It is recommended that gloves have some sort of grip so that players hands do not slide on the stick.Shin Guards
Only required for goalies at the youth and high school level, not required for field players.Bag
It’s recommended that players bring a bag (but not too large that they cannot carry their own gear) to all practices and games to store all their equipment.Balls
Keep several game balls and Swax Lax balls handy for training and practicing anytime, anywhere.Resources Boys Lacrosse Equipment Checklist Stick
Lacrosse sticks are made out of composite, metal alloy, wood, nylon, plastic and any other synthetic material. Beginner lacrosse sticks range from $35 to $50 and are made by a number of different brands. There is not much difference between beginner sticks, but just be sure to buy a boys’ lacrosse stick. A helpful hint for first-time shoppers is that boys’ sticks have mesh pockets, whereas girls’ sticks have pockets made from string and leather thongs. We offer first-time buying tips, including proper sizing, on our blog. No fiddlesticks/mini sticks.Helmet
A required piece of equipment worn by field players and goalies. Due to the structure at our camps and clinics, helmets are not necessary or required until boys reach 3rd grade, but we recommend checking in with your local lacrosse program. It’s recommended to try on different helmets to see which one fits best. Fit is important. An improperly fitted helmet offers little protection. Goalies must have throat protectors attached to their helmets.Mouthguard
At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we require mouthguards for 3rd grade and above, but be sure to check with your local lacrosse program on their requirements. There are companies that make customized mouthguards that are more durable and longer-lasting than traditional mouthguards. However, traditional mouthguards bought at a sporting goods store and molded with hot water at home will also do the trick and are financially a better option for younger players. Must be a visible color.Cleats/Turf Shoes
Many players choose to wear cleats on grass or turf fields Soccer or football cleats are acceptable; cleats do not have to be lacrosse specific. That said, most schools do not allow cleats inside since they could damage the gym floor.Gloves
A piece of equipment worn by all field players and goalies. At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we require them at 3rd grade and up, but check with your lacrosse program. The cutting or altering of gloves is not allowed. Try on different pairs to get correct sizing.Pads
At Swax Lax Lacrosse, we require pads at the 3rd grade level and up, but check with your lacrosse program. There are different sets of pads required and/or recommended for all players, which can include the following:
- Shoulder pads: required for all players except the goalie
- Arm pads:
- Must cover elbows. Helps protect arms and upper body.
- Rib Pads: to help protect rib area, but not required
- Chest Protector: required for goalies
- Cup: highly recommended for all boys, but required for goalies
- Leg protection: goalies occasionally wear shin pads and padded lacrosse pants under shorts (usually younger players, under 6th grade or players working through an injury)
Keep several game balls and Swax Lax balls handy for training and practicing anytime, anywhere.Bag
It’s recommended that players bring a large bag (but not too large that they cannot carry their own gear) to all practices and games to store all their equipment.Resources

This rule requires that all strings be within 4 inches from the top of the head and prohibits a “V” or “U” shooting string. A diagram can be seen below.
In addition, in 2015 CTYLA will enforce at the Senior Division that all heads must be NCAA compliant or Universal. NFHS heads will not be legal at the Senior level. Starting in 2016, heads at ALL levels must be NCAA compliant or Universal. Below is also a diagram that shows
