What equipment do I need?
Girls will need a lacrosse stick, goggles and mouthguard. Cleats are also recommended when playing on grass and turf.
Boys will need a lacrosse stick, helmet, mouthguard, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves and an athletic supporter with cup.
Where can I get equipment?
Local Vendors through Valley Lacrosse:
Dick’s Sporting Goods
The goal of this project is to make this sport as accessible as possible to any kid who wants to play. We are confident that we can provide each player with equipment if cost and accessibility are issues. Due to lots of generous local donations we have a lot of equipment to give to players that are relatively committed. Valley Lacrosse also loans out equipment which just needs to be returned by the end of the season.
Where/When can I play?
B&G club clinics start on July 6th every Monday and Wednesday 4:30-5:30PM @ the Central Village B&G Club (212 Van Buren St, Syracuse). This is for new players and is FREE. No experience required and equipment is provided.
Valley Summer Lacrosse will run from July 6th-31st @ Clary Middle School (100 Amidon Dr, Syracuse). Specific times for different age groups are TBD. To sign up, go to the Valley Lacrosse website at www.valleylax.org. Stay tuned for specific times of practices for different age groups.
