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.
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.
