What Equipment Do Players Need to Provide? What Does the Club Provide?
Lacrosse is not an Arizona Interscholastic Association ("AIA") sanctioned high school sport which means schools do not provide any financial support or equipment. Players are responsible for their own equipment. Fortunately many options exist regarding equipment purchases. Great used equipment can be found from players already in the program so ask your friends. Below is a list of standard equipment each player (other than goalie) will require:
Helmet (ALL PLAYERS are required to wear the following helmet color scheme: Shell Color: RED, Chin Color: WHITE, Chin Strap: RED, WHITE, or BLACK) We can place an order for you at a discounted rate. The club provides the Firebird and number decals to all new players to apply to their helmets prior to the regular season.
Stick - Shaft and Head
Rib Pads (optional)
Mouth Guards (2)
Where Can We Buy New Equipment?
Opportunities exist either on-line or locally. Dick's Sporting Goods is a good option for beginner equipment packages. Additionally there are web-based retailers; such as LacrosseMonkey, Lax.Com and Lacrosse Unlimited. Also, check out our online store on the website for some great deals! Feel free to reach out to the Club President if you have any questions on purchasing.
Does The Club Provide Uniforms?
The club provides game day uniforms for the regular season. You are required to pay a one time refundable uniform deposit of $150 for the duration of your time playing with the club. Game uniforms are handed out at the beginning of the regular season and returned to the club in May. Players are responsible for purchasing their own practice uniforms which consists of red shorts and a gray shooter shirt. All players are required wear a practice uniform (gray shooter and red shorts) to every regular season practice starting in January. You might consider buying more than one set as these are worn 4-5 times a week. In addition, ALL PLAYERS MUST also purchase the Red Game Day Shooter. You can find these items in our Squadlocker Store under "Essential Gear" https://teamlocker.squadlocker.com/#/lockers/chaparral-lacrosse.
