Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. What equipment does my son/daughter need to participate?
Boys are required to have a stick, helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, mouthguard, and an athletic supporter/cup to participate. Girls are required to have a stick and goggles (gloves are optional). We recommend cleated athletic shoes as well for both boys and girls since the fields are often muddy in the spring.
