MLAX Equipment Exchange!
MLAX Equipment Exchange!

Dear MLAX Community,
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.
We know that there are many lacrosse families who likely have outgrown equipment that is still in very good condition and could be reused. We have made an "Equipment Exchange" available on the MLAX website in the menu to the left of the Home screen at this link: http://montvillelacrosse.org/Exchange.asp?n=111973&org=montvillelacrosse.org
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 extend the expiration date of your posting. 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.
