REQUIRED EQUIPMENT

Properly fitting lacrosse equipment is essential to the safety of our players. No player will be allowed on the practice or game field without proper equipment and coaches will check prior to any practice or game so please come prepared. Season players and Little Laxers are required to practice and play in proper athletic attire.
