Personal Protective Equipment
Lacrosse physicality requires the WWYL Club to ensure that boys & girls are serious about protecting themselves. A player must come appropriately dressed to practice and games. At a minimum during practices when stated by a coach, players have to have helmets, gloves and a mouth piece and appropriate footwear to field practice. For any games or practices with game scenarios using men's lacrosse rules, protective gear as outlined in the USA Lacrosse is mandatory. "Boys field players are required to use a helmet, stick, gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads, a mouthguard and a protective cup. Rib pads are optional. Goalies are also required to wear a helmet with a face mask, a separate throat protector, padded gloves and a chest protector."
