On the first day of practice your player will need:
- a girls lacrosse stick,
- a molded mouthpiece,
- a water bottle,
- thin gloves when its chilly.
Keep everything is one bag so you can find it when your running late.
Everything we know about what to buy and where to find it is on the attached MS Word Document. This includes the traditional stay low cost options for our newer or younger players, but also adds in guidance for the seasoned players with specifics for the parents looking for our input. Make sure your kid loves the game before you buy the $100 dollar stick! The Magic is in the Wizard, not the Wand!
I shamelessly paraphrased a few recommendations from a local travel team (thanks Bill S)... but also edited it to fit to the rec level. I've also added a few items like soft headgear, gloves, goalie gear, rec-specs and cleats for kids who complain about foot or heal pain.
Let your Coach know if you have any questions & be sure to gear up for success!
