the clearance section and get some decent gear for a good price. Great gear for a defensemen would be:Defense arm pads, OG Cells or Jolts, or Empires, Gloves: I'd go to world lacrosse shop and get some silo's there. Flexible gloves for a cheap price. Helmet: This is something you would want to invest in the most. Go on ebay and get a CPX or Pro 7 for around a hundred bucks or lower and you should be good. Shoulder pads: they don't matter too much, so I'd just get a liner or something. Head: Franchise X. Shaft: Warrior Platinum Alloy (the older ones are cheaper). You can always look on ebay for cheaper equipment. That's where I get all my stuff and it saves me a good amount of money. Hope you enjoy lacrosse, and I hope this helps!
If you decide upon joining lacrosse, to practice, I'd play wall ball as much as possible. Develop stick Nike Uptempo Light Bone skills early, and practice as much as possible. For your build, it seems like you would fit into defense. Take a look at some lacrosse websites and look at Nike Air More Uptempo Og Footlocker
For example, we often hold new player clinics that include adults as well as kids. Although we typically require players to purchase a stick beforehand, we realize that we are limited to about a dozen or so on the local sporting goods stores' shelves. So I bring my extra sticks, as do the other volunteers. First sessions are typically non contact so pads and helmets are not required. We do require them for pick up games, but allow hockey gear to be worn since it is much more accessible here. After playing a few times, most guys decide to stick with it and then invest in equipment. I cannot speak for all associations, but I know a lot of the newer areas have similar practices as the Central Iowa Lacrosse Association.
I had been a fan for over a decade at that point. I've also played hockey my whole life, which actually led to my interest in lacrosse. What I lack in skill I make up for in knowledge about the game, its rules, its strategy, its Nike Uptempo Qs
So I have spent the past few months thinking about taking up a new sport and I think I have decided on lacrosse. I figured this would be a good place to ask for beginner's advice. I am a soon to be college grad. I cycle and row in the summer, I wrestled in high school and I work out and try to stay reasonably active. I think a new sport will also be a good addition to the new chapter of my life that will begin upon graduation, I am just not sure how to get started since I did not play in high school or college when I had the chance. Are there adult leagues out there where I could play? And how much money should I plan to throw down for equipment (Doesn't have to be brand new or top of the line)? Any other advice anyone can give to a late starter in this great sport would be much appreciated!
Not knowing where you live, it is hard to give specific advice. The first thing I would do is look for local lacrosse programs. Most organizations have websites now which makes things extremely easy. Start by contacting them to find out if they have beginner clinics, loaner gear, etc especially if you are in an area without a strong history of lacrosse. Some areas have a major shortage of used gear and it is easy to end up with garbage on EBay if you really don't know what you are doing. Depending on the local organization, you may be able to get started without unloading a lot of money on equipment before you even touch a stick.
Regarding your age: It is a great time to pick up the sport. I was nearly 30 before I started laxing. We had virtually nothing here, so I worked hard to find other laxers and was prepared to drive to Omaha or Kansas City (2 3 hours) to learn to play. Before long there was enough interest for me to formalize my attempts into CILA. The organization is beginning its third year and has become the primary lacrosse organization in Iowa. All it took was some dedication, hard work, and time. I'm telling you this not to brag, but to highlight the possibilities that lie ahead.
23 and looking to get into lacrosse
out here on the west coast, if you don't go to private school, lax programs are not easy to come by. use your sports backgrounds to decide where you might fit in best. i have a hockey, basketball and soccer background and seem to fit into the midfield fairly well. as far as developing skills, like any sport, you're gonna have to make all the improvements on your own time. find a wall to hit EVERY DAY and work on scooping up balls and shooting wherever you can find a net. now is an awesome time! a lot of college programs are doing the off season fall ball thing and if you have a good relationship (or if you can create one =) ) with the local school team they might let you practice with them like my school did when i started!
im in the same boat as you bud. i started playing lacrosse post high school because Nike Air Uptempo 96 2016
