We have many families asking about the availability of equipment for their children due to financial hardship or because they are first year players and want to be sure that their child likes the sport before making more of an investment.
Please go onto the Equipment Exchange and post any equipment that you have available for sale, to borrow, or to give away. To ensure the safety of the players, please ensure that any equipment has not been damaged or involved in a significant collision (specifically helmets). When posting, please change the expiration date of your posting to June 15, 2014. And if your equipment gets spoken for, please take your posting down from the Exchange.
Thank you for helping us bring lacrosse to a broader group of players by helping those who are trying it for the first time, or who might not otherwise be able to afford the cost of equipment!
DISCLAIMER: All equipment and other goods listed on the MLAX Equipment Exchange are offered by third parties and not MLAX and are offered “as is.” MLAX accepts no liability in connection with the sale or purchase of these items and disclaims any and all warranties express or implied.
MLAX would like to provide guidelines on what is needed for Lacrosse Equipment
All Instructional players are encouraged to provide their own stick and helmet & gloves (boys) or goggles (girls).
Through the generosity of US Lacrosse and The Acme Wire Company of Mystic, CT (makers of the wire facemasks on Cascade helmets), MLAX is able to offer the following loaner equipment to players:
MLAX received a US Lacrosse "First Stick" grant for girls lacrosse. We can offer sticks and goggles for girls lacrosse players to use for the season.
MLAX received 32 Cascade CS helmets to offer our younger boys players from instructional through U11 that can be loaned for a season on a first-come first-served basis.
Please email our Equipment Manager, Todd Frechette at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to use MLAX equipment. A $50 deposit check and loan waiver is required. The loan waiver form can be found in "Documents" in the main menu.
