Lacrosse Equipment Checklist
"How to Fit" Guide
Helmet - The helmet should fit snug around the whole head. You will know if the helmet is too big if you can easily slip your hand anywhere inside the helmet while on the players head. If while wearing the helmet, the player shakes their head and the helmet wiggles from side to side, this is an indication that the helmet may be too wide.
Face Mask - The face mask needs to have a chin strap that is laced through the mask. The chin cup should not super tight to the chin. The chip cup should either be pressing softly, or have a small space from the players chin.
Shoulder Pads - The shoulder pads should rest directly about the shoulder of the player. Lacrosse shoulder pads have less padding in the chest area, as players need to be light and agile. Hockey shoulder pads will work but they are more bulky.
Slash Guards (elbow pads) - The slash guard will be composed of three parts: the lower arm pad, upper arm pad, and elbow pad. The elbow of the player should fit square in the elbow pad of the slash guard. The lower and upper arm pad should extend to protect half of the lower arm and upper arm, respectively. Anything too big will restrict shoulder and hand movement.
Bicep Pads - These will be worn if there is a gap between the shoulder pads and the slash guards. These pads will help protect from the cross-checks that are given out during game play.
Lacrosse Gloves - The palm of the gloves should line up with the palm of the players hands. The fingers of the glove can be approximately half of an inch longer than the players hands to allow for growth room. The gloves should not be too long as they may restrict the cradling ability of the player. Lacrosse gloves fit much differently than hockey gloves. They allow for easy finger movement and will promote easier cradling. Lacrosse gloves are a necessity for players that are looking to catch on quickly and take their game to the next level.
Wrist Guards (optional) - The wrist guards are worn if there is a considerable gap in between the lower pad of the slash guard and the glove. They also stop the sweat from running into the gloves.
Kidney Guards - The kidney guards used for box lacrosse be made up of three parts: a spine protection piece, and two kidney pads. They should go as low as the hip and come up to about two inches under the arm pit.
Lacrosse Stick - Players in U7, U9 and U11 can use an aluminum shaft with an entry level lacrosse head. As players progress, they will need to upgrade their stick to stronger alloys to reduce the possibility of breakage or bending. The lacrosse head should have a pocket deep enough to cradle a ball, but not too deep so the player cannot shoot the ball properly.
Lacrosse Stick Restringing - Several local options are available if you are unsure about your lacrosse stick. If sticks are not strung properly players may have difficulty with basic skills of scooping, passing and shooting. You can also contact the Titans U13 Division Director who has a passion and skill for stringing sticks!
