Every great lacrosse player needs great gear to help them perform. This doesn't just include the lacrosse head or gloves you use but also the smaller items that we may just take for granted. Its amazing how the average cost of lacrosse gear is $400 for a complete kit but if you don't have that $3 mouth guard when it comes down to game time, you won't step foot on the lacrosse field. Same goes for lacrosse tape. If you tape up your lacrosse shaft for extra grip and end up being forced to use a shaft in an emergency that doesn't have tape, your lacrosse gloves are sliding all over the place. Its the little things like this that prevent a lacrosse player from being a better player.
So what sort of extra equipment do we recommend keeping in your lacrosse bag? We always suggest an extra mouth guard, a roll of athletic tape, extra replacement screw in cleats (if you wear a cleat that has replaceable cleats), eye black, and a couple feet of sidewall string (comes in handy to fix a broken sidewall or replace the strings in the cuff of your lacrosse gloves).
