Hi, I’m Taylor Nissi, Director of Operations
for Game Breaker Lacrosse. I’m here today with Nick Schmidt who’s one
of our great regional directors. Please visit our website www.laxcamps.com. The
various positions in lacrosse require different sticks. For goalies, this stick is characterized by
a larger head and the pocket can have as much depth as the player prefers. This is the same for both men’s and women’s. For field players in men’s lacrosse, you’ll
have a stick with a deeper pocket. Women’s lacrosse, as you can see, does not
have much pocket. And that’s the main difference between field
players. Additionally for women’s lacrosse, sticks
are all generally one length, whereas men’s lacrosse, defenders typically have a longer
stick that is about 72 inches long. Men’s lacrosse players are required to wear
protective gloves to protect their hands from stick checks and the ball flying around. Women’s players aren’t required to do that. There’s two different types of gloves used
during a men’s lacrosse game. You have the goalie glove. You know it’s the goalie glove because it
has the additional padding on the thumb to protect from shots in the upper 90’s. Traditional field player’s glove will be similar
to the goalie glove as far as protection, but it will lack the big pad on the thumb. Some of the more recent features on lacrosse
gloves are floating cuff. This protects your hand from a stick check,
but still allows you the full range of motion that helps you to cradle, shoot and pass. Protective headwear is an important part of
lacrosse protective gear. For men’s field players, everyone should have
a basic helmet like this. You know a helmet fits properly when you put
it on your head and you can shake it around without the cage jarring too much. For all women’s field players, they’ll just
have protective eyewear. They don’t have the full helmet like men’s
gear does. For goalies in the sport of lacrosse, it’s
important that they have a full helmet, along with a neck protector to protect them from
any shots that might slide in under the main helmet protector. And those are the various types of protective
headwear that we have in the sport of lacrosse.

    @centerstatehockey If you play attack you need to get an arm guard. Attack players take more checks and that means that they require more protection and an arm guard offers more protection.
