Girls Equipment Overview

Equipment for girls lacrosse is different than boys lacrosse and gear cannot be interchanged between the two. As with any sport the prices and quality of equipment varies. Each player is required to have certain items for the position they play. 

For equipment purposes we have two positions in girls lacrosse:

Field Player
Goalie******* Please note that we as a club have limited loaner goalie gear for the ES & MS teams. Please contact a board member if your child is interested in playing goalie ASAP

The gear for these positions is very different and we have listed out the minimum gear needed below for each position. If you have any questions about what brand/style of gear please contact a board member of Oak Park Lacrosse before you purchase your gear. 

We are also very lucky to Lacrosse Unlimited in our area. The team at Lacrosse Unlimited knows lacrosse and can advise you on what gear to purchase. Starter packages are available and they price match the box stores. When you go to LAX Unlimited please ask for Tommy and let them know you child is playing Oak Park Lacrosse. They will take care of you:

If your child is a goalie or is considering being a goalie please contact an OPLAX board member ASAP to discuss goalie gear before you buy or visit Lacrosse Unlimited and ask for Tommy.
