                                         EQUIPMENT

Boys lacrosse has more body and stick contact and therefore requires more protective equipment than girls lacrosse.

Boys Equipment

The table below gives top-level equipment guidance. If you’re more of a “gear head”, or you want more detailed recommendations, Coach Fogg wrote this helpful guide for new boys lax players. Goalie equipment is not covered in these guides. Speak to a coach or knowledgeable vendor if you have questions before purchasing equipment.
