Equipment

Box Lacrosse

Mini-Tyke

Helmet with Face Cage - both CSA approved.
Shoulder/Chest Pads.
Gloves - Hockey gloves are okay, providing they are not too “restrictive” (a lot more hand movement in lacrosse than in hockey).
Athletic Support - Boys must wear a "Jock" with plastic cup. Girls must wear a "Jill".
Mouth guard ("Boil & Byte" are acceptable).
Elbow Pads
Knee Pads (recommended, as outdoor boxes are asphalt). Elastic / Volleyball type are best.
