Lacrosse Buying Guide

Lacrosse  was originally a Native American sport which may date back to as early as the 12th century.  Though it is the oldest North American team sport known, it was not brought to England until the late 1800s, when a group of Canadians visited the UK on a three month tour with the intent to introduce the game (for a more complete account of this history, see EnglishLacrosse.co.uk).  While lacrosse is still more popular in the US and Canada, it is beginning to flourish in Europe and also in East Asia, so isn't it time to get involved?  The searches and guides below wll help you get stocked up with all the necessary equipment, and the information in our External Links will get you caught up with the rest of the details.  Happy playing!

Lacrosse Sticks

The stick is one of the key pieces of equipment for a game.  There is a good deal to know before making a purchase, and our guide can help you pick out the right one for you.

Helmets

Lacrosse is a very physical sport, and you'll want to make sure that your noggin is protected from rogue balls, checking, and tumbles.  This guide will help you find some safe options.

Balls 

You'd look pretty silly running up and down the field without any ball to shuttle around.  Use our search to give yourself a quick start (the quicker you shop, the quicker you'll be playing!)

Nets 

Much like football, lacrosse depends on getting that elusive ball into the goal.  This search will help you find sturdy nets and goals  that will stand up to whatever you throw at them.
