To play womens' lacrosse you need the following items:
1. Full size womens' lacrosse stick (see illustration below for clarification on the type of Crosse the girls game uses -- length of stick is optional, from 35-1/2" to 43-1/4" -- your coach will show you how to measure the stick)
2. Eye protection/goggles meeting the ASTM certification for women’s lacrosse
3. Colored mouthguard (not clear -- it must be visible)
4. Gloves are optional, but nice to have in our early spring season!
Here are some local places to get your equipment:
