Learn about the basic equipment you need to play lacrosse from coaches at Gameday Lacrosse in this Howcast video.

Hi, I’m Liz Kittleman-Jackson. I’m the head Lacrosse Coach at Columbia University, I’m joined by Katelyn Jackson with Game Day Lacrosse, and today we’re going to talk about basic equipment for our game. In women’s Lacrosse there are really four pieces of equipment that are necessary to play. First and foremost, every player is required to wear goggles, they come in all different shapes, sizes, and different makes.

Whatever you feel is the most comfortable for you is what you should wear in terms of the goggles. Next of course you’ve got to have a Lacrosse stick in order to play the game, also comes in lots of different colors, different makes, different pockets, different shafts. Totally a personal preference on what you like to use. Also, you’ve got to have a mouth guard, it’s just a standard mouthpiece, typically rubber, any standard mouth guard that you can find at a sporting goods store should work. And lastly, you’ve got to have a Lacrosse ball.

In the women’s Lacrosse game, the ball can be orange or yellow to be considered legal for our game. And those are the basics for equipment in women’s Lacrosse.
