Celebrate the original American sport by playing lacrosse. Stock up on all the lacrosse equipment you need at Academy Sports + Outdoors' lacrosse store, where you'll find lacrosse sticks, lacrosse shafts, lacrosse heads, lacrosse balls, lacrosse bags and more. Lacrosse sticks vary based on position and player style, so be sure to choose one that fits your particular needs. Lacrosse balls are usually made of solid rubber for durability and bounce. Training is crucial if you want to perform well on the field, so it's recommended that you check out some of the training gear, which is generally designed to help develop fundamental lacrosse skills and may be used to help improve your ability to accelerate, decelerate and quickly change direction with precise timing and body control.
Every lacrosse player needs a complete set of protective gear to play safely, which should include a pair of gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads and a helmet. Other items, such as goggles and throat protectors, are available as well. Arm pads are generally made of dense foam, and shoulder pads generally feature shoulder caps to keep you well-guarded during plays.
