How to Buy Lacrosse Gear

There are three ways to purchase Lacrosse gear:

1. Buy a new starter kit and stick online  (next section below). The simplest way to get this done... 

2. Buy equipment at Dicks We still recommend buying the Stick below but understand if its easier to buy from Dick's 

3. Buy used gear from Sideline Swap You will need a (1) youth helmet, (2) shoulder pads (HAS TO SAY "NOCSAE"), (3) gloves and (4) arm pads. Please keep an eye out for youth vs high school and college gear sizing.

If you use Sideline Swap - please make sure you are buying a chest pad that is NOCSAE STANDARD SHOULDER PADS. (required to play starting this season)  

Email us with any questions youth@lincolnlacrosse.club

Tips for Helmet Fitting

  1. Make sure the helmet is NOCSAE approved. The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment conducts rigorous tests and sets standards for safe athletic equipment, including lacrosse helmets.
  2. Always review the specific helmet manufacturer’s recommendations for proper helmet fitting either on the manufacturer’s web site or in the store.
  3. Helmets are measured in inches. Check manufacturers’ charts to show the proper size helmet for your child’s head.
  4. Padding of the helmet shall give firm and uniform pressure about the head. The skin of the forehead should move as the helmet is moved from left to right and from front to back.
  5. Be sure there is a four-point chin-strap attached to the helmet. The chin-strap should be tightened so that there is no slack.
  6. Properly fitted helmets must take into account the hairstyle of your child; if your child has a great deal of thick hair and then receives a haircut, the helmet must then be refitted.
  7. Proper helmet fit should never cause headaches.
  8. The facemask should attach cleanly to the helmet and should be replaced if it is bent.
