This can be daunting if you're new to the sport. It is incredibly important that we make sure players are wearing the appropriate gear, not only to follow BCLA regulations but for player safety.

U7/MiniTyke - helmet, shoulder (lacrosse or hockey), elbow & knee pads, gloves, jock/jill, and mouth guard.

U9/Novice to U17 - helmet, shoulder, elbow, & kidney pads, gloves, jock/jill, and mouth guard.
