BUYING EQUIPMENT | Hotshots Lacrosse
We do our best to keep our player fees to a minimum, whether it be for Spring Season, Fall Box, Counter Strike or tournaments we participate in. These fees, usually between $100.00-$395.00 depending upon the event in which we are participating in, are used to help cover the cost of facility rental, team uniforms, liability insurance, event/league registration fees, and team coach stipend and travel expenses.
Estimated Equipment Costs
All lacrosse players must have the necessary legal equipment to play lacrosse: stick, helmet, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, protective cup, cleats and mouthpiece. Goalies are not required to wear arm pads or shoulder pads, but must wear a chest protector and throat guard.
During some clinics or “try-it-out” periods, we may have limited quantities of equipment available for new players to use. Once these young lads decide they are going to continue to play in the program, they will be responsible for securing their own equipment.
Lacrosse is a very unique sport. In addition to the spring season, most players continue to play throughout the year in various outside programs and leagues, as well as attend summer camps and clinics. Participation in all of these additional activities requires the same equipment. This is the primary reason why lacrosse players, unlike youth football players, purchase their own gear.
The estimated investment for all of the necessary equipment is $450 but there are starter sets that can be found for under $200. With the exception of the gloves, the majority of this equipment will last most of the player’s youth career unless they grow out of it.
Arm Pads: $17-$125
Shoulder Pads: $15-$150
Cleats (football, lacrosse or soccer): $50+
Youth Starter Sets
Please note, many of the local sporting goods stores and lacrosse specialty stores offer youth starter sets at a very affordable price. We recommend you spend the most on a good lacrosse stick, which can be found online at our StringKing online store. Your next most important purchase will be on his helmet to protect his egg.

The Ultimate Lacrosse Guide – Baltimore Magazine
Right now, somewhere in Baltimore, a boy is throwing a lacrosse ball to himself off a brick wall—over and over—hoping to become the next Rob Pannell.
Who? Exactly. The leading scorer in NCAA Division I history is hardly a household name. But in lacrosse circles, the former Cornell University star is a legend. Unlike other major sports in this country, lacrosse does not promise a career of fame and fortune. Even earning a college scholarship for lacrosse is difficult: Major college teams can have rosters as large as 45, with only 12 scholarships to dish out among all players every year.
So why do kids in this region continue to choose a sport with such a seemingly low ceiling?
Shack Stanwick, a senior at The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland, is the youngest of eight kids, all of whom played collegiate lacrosse. And a backyard lacrosse game is to the Stanwicks what football was to the Kennedys. “Lacrosse gives me so many things in return,” says Stanwick, 18, who plans to play at The Johns Hopkins University next year. “I’ve made so many friends through the sport who
I’m still close with today. It’s allowed me to share a special connection with my siblings, and it has also helped me and my dad strengthen our relationship. ”
“Some parents are understanding that while there’s not a whole lot of athletic scholarship dollars at the end of the rainbow, lacrosse can help in terms of admission,” says Steve Stenersen, president and CEO of US Lacrosse. “If a child’s academic standing isn’t quite good enough, lacrosse could be a determining factor.”
“It’s just fun,” says Bob Shriver, coach of Boys’ Latin. “It’s a great game to practice; it’s not the drudgery of football. It has more scoring than soccer, more people than basketball. It just gets in your soul.”
Devotees of the game say the lessons learned on the lacrosse field stay with you for a lifetime. To look into that, we tracked down a Baltimore veteran of the sport, Richard Mollett, who was something of a local lacrosse star in his day, playing first at Boys’ Latin, then at Towson State University, where, as a senior, his team won the 1974 college-division national championship. He played or coached club lacrosse for 20 years after that, but is best known as the founder and owner, along with wife Dort, of Antrim 1844, Taneytown’s award-winning historic country inn (and five-star restaurant).
“In business, I’d say lacrosse gave me the ability to know not to ever give up, and to never stop trying to get to the next level,” says Mollett. “And it ingrained in me that once you reach that next level, you can’t be satisfied with that. After you face challenges on the field for so many years, you know you can face challenges in business.”
10 Pieces of Badass Gear to Level Up Your Hunting Season
Upgrading your hunting season with the following gear will significantly better your experience outside.
It’s the lull before big game season. And if you’re anything like me, you’re scouring the web to see how you can best upgrade your hunting gear before opening day.
Most of this isn’t hunting gear per se, but it is a swath of gear from first aid needs to minimal creature comforts (and more) that can either save or improve your experience in the field. For me, the little things add up. And more and more, they’re worth the extra expenses.
We also offer a swath of articles that cover the best of the best when it comes to actual hunting gear. If you’re looking for the best hunting packs, boots, hunting jackets, pants, or more, we’ve got that too.
But the following is simply a hodgepodge of stuff that really helps whether you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep or make a decent steak after a tag is punched.
Badass Gear to Level Up Your Hunting Season
Two friends and fellow hunters have literally saved the lives of hunting companions in the field because they chose to put QuikClot bandaging ($16) in their pack. After hearing these stories of backcountry scares, I immediately purchased QuikClot and I keep it in my pack (and my truck) at all times.
The bandage closes wounds in an impressive period of time using a mineral called kaolin. Having QuikClot on hand can help in personal emergencies, pet emergencies, and more. It’s used by the military in combat. And it should be a part of our everyday vernacular when we talk about packing for a hunt.
At just $16, it should be a non-negotiable in your pack. This isn’t an upgrade; this is a must-have.

Camp Chef Rainier 2X Combo Grill and Stove
I always rolled my eyes at two-burner propane stoves until the Rainier 2X ($205) came into my life. But this one’s a grill and a stove, and that fit my life outdoors better than any two-burner before it.
Having the flexibility to grill bacon while boiling water or throw a steak on without making a fire is one of my personal favorite car-camping upgrades. And honestly, I’m not sure why anyone would even own a two-burner when a grill/burner option is on the market.
It’s the ultimate tailgate, hunting, camp, on-the-road-and-need-a-burger upgrade. It’s packable, perfect, and smart.
Plus, it’s an amazing option if you live in an apartment and just can’t do the grill thing on your small deck. The possibilities are endless, and the Rainier 2X is the best portable stove I’ve ever used.

YETI 12oz Rambler With HotShot Cap
I am an on-the-go kind of human. Also, I’m the kind that spills constantly. It’s a problem. Enter the YETI Rambler with HotShot Cap ($30).
The HotShot Cap is the real level-up in this outfit. Fill it with anything you want, screw it down, and shove it in a pack with no worries.
When you unscrew the cap, you don’t need to consider where you can drink from. It’s a 360-degree drinkable surface. For dummies like me who can’t wear white, it’s a literal godsend.
It also fits on a slew of larger YETI bottles in case 12 ounces just isn’t enough. Plus, with YETI’s reliable temperature control, you can sip all day and your drink will stay hot or cold.

Swiftwick PURSUIT HIKE Six Lightweight Socks
When the temps turn up, I’m reaching for my Swiftwick PURSUIT HIKE socks ($21), and I’m deeply disappointed if I can’t track down a clean pair. Though the brand skews toward cyclists, their lightweight merino blend is flipping perfect on days that beg for coolness. Archers, I’m looking at you.
A snug compression keeps socks in place, negating problems like blisters. And they simply do their job. In addition to creating a near-perfect sock, the brand works hard to maintain a sustainable footprint (hehe), and their socks are made in the U.S.A.
The socks are available for both men and women.

Garmin Alpha 200i/TT 15 Tracking Bundle
If you’re a bird-doggin’ machine, this is the technology to upgrade your time in the field with your pups. Garmin’s top-of-the-line handheld GPS and collar system ($999) allows you to train and track up to 20 dogs from up to 9 miles away.
It provides InReach texting and Emergency SOS communication. Satellite and topo maps allow you to clearly view the landscape you and your dogs are covering. And you can correct your dog via tones, vibrations, and stimulation when necessary.
You can also pair this system with a Garmin watch for ease of use on the go. And the handheld can work on its own as a GPS device on hunts where the dogs stay home. This is, of course, a major upgrade to your kit. But sometimes, a major upgrade is necessary.
I’ll be using this system all fall as I hunt my Boykin Spaniel pup for his first season. I am VERY pumped.

Stone Glacier Chilkoot Sleeping Bag
You can take your pick between the Chilkoot 0 ($599) and the Chilkoot 15 sleeping bag ($549), but either way you slice it, this is my favorite sleeping bag of all time.
Between the high loft and silky feel, it’s just comfortable. The zipper is solid and difficult to catch. It has no wild bells and whistles beyond the loft and the fill that you need to stay warm year-round. As someone who sleeps cold and is often sleeping out in wildly cold weather, this is a big deal.
Plus, these bags are light. Like, really light. At just 2 pounds 10 ounces, the zero-degree option is still packable on your back. You don’t need to sacrifice weight for warmth, I promise. The 15-degree maxes out at a minuscule 2 pounds 3 ounces if you don’t need the extra down.

NEMO Chipper Foam Seat Pad
This nifty little 5-ounce foam seat pad is something I probably would have huffed at back in the day. But after experiencing the added delight of a bit of cushion when hunting in the hills on a cold day, I get it.
The NEMO Chipper foam seat pad ($20) also has a great story. NEMO was looking for a way to recycle remnants from their sleeping pad manufacturing cycle. And they did just that.
“In the first year of production we [were] able to keep 8.8 tons of scrap foam out of the waste stream and 48 tons of carbon dioxide out of the air compared to using virgin materials,” the company’s site boasts.
And now this little pad is a constant in my life. Use it in the field, at sporting events, for day hikes, or anywhere you just need a bit of cush for your tush. It’s an affordable and sweet upgrade for life on the run.

Fishpond Thunderhead Submersible Duffel
Most people associate dry bags with fishing, but they’ve become an irreplaceable part of my personal hunting setup. And the Fishpond Thunderhead Submersible Duffel ($299) is my all-time favorite bag. I’ve used dry duffels before, but this one takes the cake.
Why? The climbing rope handle system is burly and is located in all the right places. The diagonal zipper is easy to open and close, with none of the struggles I’ve had with other dry bags. The 39L size and shape are perfect for a multiday trip on the water or off. And I can throw it in the bed of my truck with no worries of leaking or damage.
I plan on using this as my top pack for packing my horse and mule this fall, and I’ve used it as an overnighter for nearly every trip I’ve been on since it arrived. I love this bag. It’s perfection, plain and simple.

New-Skin Liquid Bandage
Perhaps an odd but necessary standout, New-Skin Liquid Bandage ($3) has been a part of my life and gear repertoire since I was a kid playing soccer and lacrosse in the swamps of Ohio’s sports fields. Blisters have been a plague since those days over 2 decades ago, and Liquid Bandage is the gift that keeps on giving.
Wildly small yet unbelievably effective, Liquid Bandage has been the difference in moments I thought I couldn’t keep going and simply taking a quick application break.
I’ll warn you, it burns like the hot depths of hell upon application. But it does just what it says and provides a second layer of skin and protection. If you’re in the elements, reapply often. For anything longer than an easy walk, it’s in my bag. No question about it.

LuminAID Solar Lantern
I’m not even sure how long the LuminAID solar lantern ($25-30) has been a part of my life, mostly because I forget life without it. I stick it on the dash of my truck when I know I’m gonna need evening light, and night after night, it performs.
It offers three separate brightness options, and it can be used as a charger. I don’t recall any time that it’s failed me in my quest for a brighter space. And it’s wildly light. The inflatable option is great. And if I could change anything about it, I would have picked the warm light option for optimal coziness.
This light was actually designed for humanitarian reasons, but it’s also a perfect fit for anyone who spends time outside. It weighs next to nothing, and it requires nothing but the sun. I love it.

90,000 Timkin’s super reversal, Mozyakin’s master and Shumakov’s lacrosse. The best goals in KHL history – Hockey news
The new material of our special KHL project “The Path to Victory” contains a selection of the best goals in the history of the league according to the “SE” version.
Sergey Mozyakin, Metallurg Mg. Season 2015/16
Our hit parade opens with the record holder of Russian hockey, Sergei Mozyakin. Everyone is accustomed to the fact that his main weapon is a laser throw, but in the home match against SKA, the captain of Metallurg also flashed an incredible stroke.Mozyakin, having received a pass from Kovar in the middle zone, sent defender Yudin and goalkeeper Shesterkin to the buffet. Steve Moses could only make a helpless gesture – the leader of “Magnitogorsk” stripped the defense of the army, like a girl on her wedding night. Master, what can I say.
Vladimir Antipov, Traktor. Season 2012/13
“Traktor” from the time of Valery Belousov seriously made noise in the KHL, reaching the final of the Gagarin Cup, where he lost to Moscow “Dynamo”. There were enough masters in the team, and the experienced Vladimir Antipov was the captain at that time. He did not have outstanding statistics, but at the right time he used the skill for its intended purpose. As, for example, in the away match with Avangard. Antipov entered the zone at speed and, in slalom style, drove around two defenders and goalkeeper Karri Ryame.
Evgeny Dadonov, SKA. Season 2016/17
The final series of 2017 remained one of the most controversial in KHL history.Nevertheless, despite the rather quick victory of the army, both teams presented the fans with bright hockey. The decoration of the first match was the goal of Evgeny Dadonov. The SKA striker scoffed at the section of Magnitka defender Chris Lee and sent the puck “to the house” to Vasily Koshechkin.
Evgeny Timkin, Vityaz. Season 2011/12
Vityaz striker Evgeny Timkin taught the audience not only exciting fist fights, but also filigree strokes.In a home match with CSKA, he scored the best goal of the 2011/12 season. Having intercepted the puck in a foreign zone, Timkin turned around and aesthetically sent it from under his foot under the shield of goalkeeper Rostislav Stani. A year later, Evgeny moved to Magnitka, with which he became a two-time winner of the Gagarin Cup.
Nikita Korostelev, “Admiral”. Season-2019/20
In the 2019/20 season, CSKA sent Korostelev to Admiral, where he scored the first goal in the KHL.And what a! Korostelev was not afraid to go to beat “one to one”, left defender Rukavishnikov out of work and puzzled goalkeeper Reideborn with a throw from under his feet.
Danis Zaripov, Metallurg. Season 2013/14
The three Mozyakin – Kovarzh – Zaripov kept the League’s goalkeepers at bay for several seasons. When they went out on the ice, danger was worth expecting from everyone. The power of the Magnitogorsk link was felt by the Prague “Lion”, who capitulated in the 2014 Gagarin Cup final.Filigree and moderately impudent Mozyakin drove around the defenders and gave the pass to Zaripov, who had no chance to miss the empty goal.
Boris Sadetsky, Slovan. Season 2017/18
During his two years in the KHL, Slovan’s forward Boris Sadetsky scored only two goals. But I am sure he will remember the goal against Lokomotiv for a long time. Sadetsky took the puck in the middle zone, mockingly removed the defender and dealt with the goalkeeper.It turns out that everything ingenious is simple.
Sergey Shumakov, CSKA. Season 2017/18
The Michigan Goal is one of the favorite tricks of the forward Sergei Shumakov. It is not so easy to perform such a trick. But this does not frighten Shumakov at all – he is still trying to score similar goals at Avangard. He scored his first such goal in the KHL back in CSKA – Kunlun goalkeeper Magnus Hellberg was injured.
Jeff Platt, Lokomotiv.Season 2013/14
Our hit parade is completed by the supergol of Lokomotiv forward Jeff Platt. He showed that he is fluent in the technique of stuffing the puck and could well try himself in tennis or baseball.
Blog about classic handmade men’s shoes
Field hockey is a team game with sticks and a plastic ball on grass (or artificial grass). The main task of the team is to throw the ball into the opponent’s goal more times at the set time.
It cannot be said that this sport is one of the most popular (especially in comparison with classic hockey and even bandy ice hockey), so it can be difficult for fans of this game to find specialized equipment and, in particular, shoes. Let’s talk more about field hockey shoes.
The history of the emergence of shoes
One of the oldest finds associated with hockey, in principle, is the image of two “players” with clubs on a pyramid near Beni Hasan (in the Nile Valley).Similar finds came across both the Japanese and the Aztec Indians. Everything indicates that field hockey is one of the oldest sports. However, despite such a long existence, a clear regulation of equipment for this game will not be established until the first half of the twentieth century.
Field hockey, which is familiar to most, appeared in the middle of the 19th century. This was played in English schools, universities and colleges. The first set of rules was formed in 1852, and in 1861 the first ice hockey club, Blackheath, was established in London.After him, other hockey clubs began to appear here and there. But, again, there is not a word about shoes in this regulation.
Most of the players preferred to play field hockey in the shoes they wore in everyday life. Naturally, there was no question of any specialized spikes, right up to the great invention of the Dasslers in a little less than a century. Some thought of supplying their running shoes with homemade spikes, but there weren’t many of them (and this idea was traumatic).
In 1886, the first official National Field Hockey Association is formed. Together with it, an improved set of rules is also issued. Gradually, this sport is reaching a new level: it enters the continent in Europe, India, Canada, USA, Ireland, New Zealand, etc.
Around the same years, the first specialized running spikes appear, which in the future will be transformed into spiked shoes for various sports (American football, rugby, lacrosse, cricket, etc. ).etc.). The novelty was presented to the world by J. W. Foster and Sons, which is known to most modern sports fans as Reebok. The silhouette of such boots was made from a single piece of leather, and the sole was equipped with rather weighty spikes. Of course, such an option for such an active sport as field hockey was not suitable due to its weight.
It is for this reason that most professional field hockey players continued to wear casual, lightweight boots that, while not as good as grip on the lawn, provided maneuverability when moving around.
Everything changed with the release of the great invention of the Dassler brothers. They introduced the first professional studded boot to the world in 1925. Quite quickly, the technology penetrated not only football, but also other sports that required good grip on soft surfaces (lawn, court, sand, etc.). The invention did not pass by the side and footwear for field hockey. When Adolf Dassler fell out with his brother and founded adidas, many of the developments associated with the production of spiked shoes were applied to sneakers designed for field hockey.
Dassler reinforced the body to increase foot protection, and provided the outsole with studs of different diameters to provide better traction on different types of lawns. It turned out to be a cross between cricket shoes and American football shoes.
Features of shoes
Field hockey is a sport that requires a lot of stamina and activity from the player. So the choice of footwear for this game must be responsible.
Interestingly, many professional hockey players prefer to play in lightweight running shoes rather than special sneakers.But beginners or hobbyists shouldn’t follow their example. They should experiment with specialized shoes, understand what they like about these sneakers and what not, how comfortable they feel in shoes with a molded studded sole, etc.
The following parameters are important for hockey shoes:
- High ankle support. In this, the field hockey shoes are similar to the American football and lacrosse boots. Players are constantly and actively moving on the field, so the ankle must be protected from injury and collision.A sudden change in direction of running should not end in dislocations.
- Studded sole. Hockey shoe spikes come in different diameters. The presence of standard studs in the front (under the toes, at the very toe) is mandatory, this provides an easy turn while running. In addition to the standard rubberized studs, many manufacturers also include semi-studs (usually in the center of the outsole) in such silhouettes to achieve more tangible traction.
- Sneaker materials.Here, preference is usually given to waterproof materials. This keeps the foot dry for even the longest match. There are also lightweight options with a mesh upper that provides breathability to the shoe. The midfoot is always reinforced with synthetic overlays to help keep the foot in position and make the shoe even more comfortable to wear.
There are not many brands that produce professional equipment for field hockey players. In matters of footwear, everything is rather prosaic here: almost the entire range of studded hockey boots is made by adidas. You can, of course, find individual hockey shoe models from other brands that specialize in hockey equipment, but that will be difficult. Major hockey shoe manufacturers:
The main list of top models for field hockey shoes is presented by the adidas brand.That is why most of the models in the selection were chosen from the catalog of this brand.
adidas RESPONSE HOCKEY II
One of the most popular silhouettes. The upper case is made of synthetic materials, light weight, shock-absorbing insole. The midsole features a supportive element that allows for better control of movement while playing. The heel is made of adiPRENE material, which perfectly absorbs impacts and reduces stress on the foot.
Nike VAPOR DRIVE
This silhouette has been specially designed for playing hockey on a wet pitch.The upper is made of waterproof materials to help keep your foot dry even in the most challenging climates. Excellent traction thanks to the studded outsole. There are additional pads to enhance the protection of the athlete’s ankle.
adidas ADIPOWER HOCKEY 2019
The silhouette is aimed at professional field hockey players. The upper of the case is made of mesh material for increased breathability. The midsole is made with Bounce technology, which helps to achieve excellent cushioning on all types of surfaces.Rubberized sole with standard studs.
adidas DEFENSE LAX D MID
Another popular silhouette used by both professional and novice field hockey players. The upper case is made of leather, there is a mesh insert for better breathability. The insole is embossed, the midsole is made of EVA material.
adidas MIDDLE LAX FT MID
This silhouette is suitable not only for field hockey players, but also for fans of lacrosse. The outsole is made with TRAXION technology, super-durable lugs that replace the classic studs provide excellent traction on both artificial and natural turf. The top of the case with a fabric pad perfectly wicks moisture away, but at the same time breathes. Additional padding in the insole and collar provides good cushioning even during active movement.
adidas SCORCH 9 FIELD TURF LOW
The all-round cleat differs from other models with its unique stud pattern. The special arrangement of the lugs gives extra traction to the outside of the shoe, which increases maneuverability and increases travel speed even on the softest turf.
The upper is made of high quality synthetics, the weight of the sneaker is light, so the foot will feel comfortable all day long. The EVA insole provides good cushioning, while the fabric lining reduces friction and wicks away excess moisture.
