BOYS

Required Equipment for all Boys K-6 Grades:

Stick
Cleats (soccer style cleats acceptable or any sturdy athletic shoe)
helmet
mouth guard
jock and cup
shoulder pads
elbow guards
gloves

Optional (but recommended): Rib Guard
 
Kindergarten through Fourth Grade:
          Although LMYL strongly recommends the purchase of a certified lacrosse helmet, the use of ice hockey helmets is allowed from the First Step through the Fourth grade levels. Other hockey equipment (shoulder pads and elbow pads) may also be used.  Hockey gloves do not work for lacrosse at any level, as they have a stiff, non-flexible thumb.  Protective cups should be worn by 3rd and 4th graders.
 5,6,7,8th Grade:
          Only certified lacrosse helmets may be used. Hockey shoulder pads work, but elbow pads and gloves will not work.  Lacrosse specific gloves and elbow/forearm pads are needed.  Rib pads, while not required, are valuable.  This is particularly true if your son is playing on a travel team.  Protective cups are required by all players in these grades.
