Due to the cost and administrative complications, North Kingstown Youth Lacrosse no longer provides players with equipment. There are various local businesses that offer little-used equipment at a discount, as well as most of the major national sporting goods stores offer new package deals. If you are requesting financial assistance for the season the form will ask if the equipment is needed. We do from time to time have equipment swaps and "Try it on for size" events.
List of necessary equipment:
The following equipment is required:
NOCSAE-approved helmet. No hockey helmets.
Lacrosse Shoulder Pads As of 2022, all must be EKG certified.
Lacrosse Arm/Elbow Pads
Lacrosse Gloves No hockey gloves.
Mens Lacrosse stick There is a difference.
Cleats are optional but are really recomended. Cannot be metal spiked. Keep the Baseball stuff at home.
The following is required:
Protective lacrosse eyewear
Any non-metal spiked cleats are optional. Girls' lacrosse gloves are also optional (these are more for warmth and grip, than protection).
