Best Answer

A Lacrosse goalie wears a chest protector not normal shoulder pads however, a chest protector typically has pads for your shoulders. Some people choose to get a chest protector with removable shoulder pads so you could take them off but I wouldn't take them off. Trust me on the not taking it off part it's coming from a goalie, it kills getting hit in the shoulder.

What gear do you wear in lacrosse?

In Lacrosse you use a stick, consisting of two parts, the head and the shaft. You also wear protective equipment such as a Helmet, Shoulder Pads, Arm Pads, Gloves, and sometimes rib pads. Rib Pads are not required. In mens there is generally the shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, the cup, the helmet, and the stick which is either the short stick or the defensive pole. In womens the equipment is basically a stick the length of a mens short stick, optional gloves, and goggles. Both have to wear mouthguards because no one wants to lose teeth. Both have goalies that wear chest pads and helmets with thigh pads. The shin guards are preferred but are mainly up to the goalie or the coach as well as any other pads. I'm not sure about mens lacrosse but for womens all you need is an approved stick, mouthguard, and eye protection goggles. Men use helmets, gloves, elbow/arm guards/protectors, chest pads, a stick (made up of the shaft and head), a cup, and optionaly rib guards (very useful for midis and attack because you get slap and poke checked a lot). Men's and women's lacrosse require different equipment, since the rules for the sport are different. Men's lacrosse equipment: Lacrosse cleats or an athletic tennis shoe An athletic supporter and athletic cup Chest and shoulder pads Arm guards Helmet with full face mask Lacrosse stick with head Lacrosse ball Mouthguard Women's lacrosse equipment: Lacrosse cleats or an athletic tennis shoe Lacrosse goggles Lacrosse stick with head Lacrosse ball Mouthguard


Why don't goalies wear elbow pads in lacrosse?

Goalies don't have to wear arm pads because they don't need to (unless the league u play in requires them, but that is rare) and the pads limit they're range of motion. But really the goalie himself makes the decision as to wear them or not and some like and some dislike.

What are the smallest lacrosse shoulder pads?

There are many types and brands that advertise "liners" or "speed" versions of pads, but I have found that only a few are worth the dollar. First, I recommend the Maverik Maybach Speed Liners. They are light and comfortable, as advertised. Second, I recommend the Warrior MPG UltraLyte 8.0 Lacrosse Shoulder Pad which are your best bet for some protection, but less than the Maveriks. Lastly, I recommend this unconventional method of getting comfortable, but compact pads: Warrior MPG 4.5 Lacrosse Shoulder Pad. Don't "diss" this idea just because they are "beginner" pads. I actually still wear these because they are so small and compact. When you get them in, you need to cut the shoulder sum and plastic piece off nearest the neck. This oprion is the cheapest and in my opinion, most comfortable way to go.
