Good Info for new Lax Parents

Below is general information for new parents to lacrosse.  If you have a question please email us at covlaxpa@gmail.com!


The Lacrosse Season:

Season runs from beginning of March through the beginning of June.


Practices and Games

  • Boys (10U and up)
    • Practice 2 nights a week  
    • 1 game during the week and 1 game on Saturday
  • Boys 8U and lower
    • Practice 2 nights a week
    • Play days scheduled on Saturdays.
  • Girls (3-4 and up)
    • Practice 2 nights a week
    • Games on Saturdays
    • Typically 3 play days
  • K-2
    • Practice 1-2 nights a week
    • Around 4 Saturday games
    • Typically 1-2 play days


Note: Practice and Game days during the week are not determined until closer to the start of the season.  This is due to outside organization scheduling policies and field availability.


For new parents, Lacrosse starts in the cold of late winter and early spring.  It is typical for the first couple of practices and games to be cancelled or rescheduled due to weather conditions.


The Equipment:

For players just starting out, looking to buy/borrow used equipment is a great idea, there are online resources as well as stores like Play it Again Sports where you can get gently used equipment at reasonable prices.



  • Helmet  (hockey helmets would work for younger U8)
  • Boys lacrosse stick
    • For new players, there are many options for a starter stick.  Many large sports stores have a good selection of pre-strung sticks.  One of those out there is now is Warrior Warp Evo Next complete stick.  This is a permanently strung stick that never needs break-in or adjustments.  Players focus on fundamentals rather than the stick causing issues.
  • Chest and Elbow Pads and Gloves
  • Colored mouthguard -  Buy at least 5 of these as they will lose them!
  • Cup (optional, mandatory for Goalies)
  • Non-metal cleats



  • Regulation stick
  • Eyewear (goggles)
  • Colored mouthguard - Note: see boys comment above…
  • Non-metal cleats.
