North Gwinnett Lacrosse Association
All players MUST have a lacrosse stick and wear the following pieces of protective equipment during practices and games. NO EXCEPTIONS. This equipment must be professionally manufactured and not altered. Each player must always have a properly molded mouthpiece, that is NOT white or clear (must be a color).
Helmet: Designed for lacrosse and meeting the NOCSAE test requirements. The helmet must have a face mask and a chin strap that is firmly attached.
Mouthpiece: All players must wear a professionally manufactured intra-oral mouthpiece that fully covers the upper jaw teeth. It can be of any color, except white or clear and may not be altered to decrease protection.
Gloves: Padded gloves with unaltered palms are worn for protection that are made specifically for lacrosse.
Shoulder Pads: Shoulder pads that are made specifically for lacrosse, and in no way are altered from manufacturer’s original construction.
Arm Pads: Since the arms are usually near your stick, they may be exposed to contact making arm protection vital. (Pads must be made specifically for lacrosse.)
Cleats (recommended, not required)
Rib Pads: Protection for the rib cage is recommended (not required)
Protective Cup: It is highly recommended that a protective cup be worn both during games and practices.
NGLA provides goalie equipment but players wishing to focus on the position may wish to purchase their own.
