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
