Note about boys Shoulder Pads
Beginning in 2022, US Lacrosse boys’ field players, NFHS boys’ field players, and NCAA men’s field players must also wear chest protection that meets the NOCSAE ND200 standard. Some manufacturers have already begun to introduce chest protection for boys’ field players into the marketplace. US Lacrosse encourages field players of all ages to begin using protection as soon as they can, rather than waiting for the 2022 mandate.

For your use, here is a Lacrosse Equipment Fitting Guide provided by US Lacrosse.



The Berkeley Lacrosse Club believes access to gear should not be a barrier for families whose children want to try lacrosse. As such, the club invests in a supply of quality gear and makes it available for economical rates to club families. The club relies on the goodwill of its families to rent and renew gear with full payment in a timely manner and currently does not have a late fee for rentals that are not returned on time. Please help us keep this program thriving by renting and returning gear efficiently.

NEW 2021! Girl Helmets will be available to Rent as part of the Spring season! There is no clear consensus on an increase in player safety with helmets in girl's lacrosse. Both the national US Lacrosse and local NCJLA have decided girl's helmets are optional. However, some of our players do use an approved lacrosse helmet with integrated goggles. 

OUR SUPPLY IS LIMITED: While we make every effort to anticipate supply needs based on registrations, there is no guarantee that sizes or supply of any rental item will be available.

Additionally, discounted Sticks available for purchase directly from the club! Players who are looking to elevate their play are encouraged to invest in their own gear, starting with a stick. In an effort to make sure kids have a solid stick of their own to use, BLC has arranged for a bulk purchase discount on well-functioning beginner sticks for girls and boys for only $40. Order one from our Online Store and pick it up in Berkeley so your player can start getting the feel of the stick before Spring Season starts.

Your coach would be happy to discuss gear recommendations.
