LACROSSE GEAR

Girls K-14U and Boys 8U-14U require full lacrosse gear.   Click on one of the images to learn more about gear requirements.

To protect against Commotio Cordis*, USA Lacrosse has implemented new rules that boys chest and shoulder pads must meet NOCSAE certification.  These pads have been approved by NOCSAE.  You can visually see a chest pad is approved if it has the "Meets NOCSAE Standard" on it.
