Equipment List

Below is a list of equipment you will need for high school lacrosse.

Gently used equipment is perfectly acceptable.  Second-hand helmets should be no more than 4 years old and only lightly used to ensure the safety integrity.

For the most knowledgeable advice and best quality equipment, Lacrosse Idaho is the best store locally.  Other sporting goods stores do carry lacrosse items, i.e. Dick’s, Sports Authority and Big Five Sports. Play It Again Sports sometimes has decent used equipment prior to the beginning of the season. There are also many online companies that sell discounted equipment. Below are links to the best ones.
