Brownsburg Lacrosse

Equipment

  • Brownsburg Youth Lacrosse players are responsible for providing their own basic equipment - required pads (noted below) and a short stick.  Specialized equipment (defense/long sticks and goalie gear) will be provided by the club.
  • Through U.S. Lacrosse's First Stick Grant we have approximately 24 sets of equipment available for rental. This offers youth a chance to try out lacrosse without a major investment. Please contact Brownsburg Youth Lacrosse for details and availability.

  • PROTECTIVE  EQUIPMENT
    •  All equipment listed below comes in multiple styles, sizes and as players develop, their preferences change.  The only required items are noted below, but for beginners, starter packages will include gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads.  Other items are purchased separately.
      • HELMET (required) - Goalie helmet will have additional throat protection added
      • GLOVES (required)

      • SHOULDER PADS (required) - solid breastplate preferred

      • Goalies have a larger chest protector and sometimes wear shin guards and padded undergarments.
  • CLEATS
    • There are specific lacrosse shoes, manufactured by traditional lacrosse suppliers, but any soccer or football cleat will work as well. 
  • BALLS
    • Balls are solid rubber and while they bounce, they are much harder than most people imagine - that is why helmets and chest protection are important.
  • GOALS
    • Field lacrosse goals are 6' high by 6' wide and 7' deep.  There are foldable and portable versions available if you are interested in purchasing one for backyard use as well as smaller, flexible pop-up versions that can serve as training aids as well.
