Your child should bring their gear to the first practice. The club provides a game uniform / practice jersey for all players and specialty gear for goalies. All additional gear is the responsibility of the player. You have two main options for outfitting your player with lacrosse gear; renting and purchasing.

 

Rental Options:

When you visit either store below, tell them that you are with Bothell, Inglemoor, or North Creek youth lacrosse and would like to rent gear. The clerks will size your player for helmet, gloves, and a set of shoulder and arm pads. 

Play It Again Sports (Woodinville): $75/fall, $90/spring |  If you decide to keep the equipment, your payment will go towards final purchase. Visit website

Superior Seconds (Issaquah):  $40/fall, $100/spring, $125/year, $10/week  | Visit website

 

Purchase Options:

There is a wide range in quality and price for gear. We recommend that you don’t spend a lot for your introductory equipment. A starter set with a good helmet and basic set of pads will serve you well. Ask for a "lacrosse starter set" in local stores and online.

Local stores such as Dicks (most selection), Play It Again Sports (used and new), and Big 5 Sporting Goods (limited stock).

Internet suppliers such as LaxWorld.com, SportStop.com, Lax.com, LacrosseMonkey.com, and many more.

 

Contact the following club members if you have rental or purchase questions:
Bothell: Todd Suckut   |  Inglemoor: Tim Pearce   |  North Creek: Mark Elwell

Coach Recommendations:

Print the gear checklist for your child to use when getting ready for each practice/game. If your child shows up to a practice or a game without the required equipment, they may need to sit out. Please have your player arrive at the field with sufficient time to get fully dressed and ready to go when practice starts.

As with all boys starter sticks, the mesh will need to be broken in. Most starter sticks come with mesh that stretches when wet. This has a tendancy to change the way that the stick throws. Simply changing to a coated mesh helps with pocket consistency in wet weather, providing more relaiible ball handling and passing. Coaches can help parents select restringing options for the wet weather play we have in the northwest. Girls sticks do not have this issue because they use traditional lacing instead of mesh.

When purchasing a helmet, ensure that you are selecting the correct size. Cascade, for example, provides a helmet-sizing chart in their online Helmet Safety Book. While many helmet models are fully adjustable (one size), a few models come in multiple sizes.
