FIAA Lacrosse Equipment Programs


FI Lacrosse Club exists to introduce and develop the sport of lacrosse to youth players in North Florida.  To that end we offer options for equipping players in our programs; one for new players and a second option for returning players. 

New Players

We recognize the dilemma parents face introducing a new sport to their children.  There is a reluctance to purchase equipment given the unknown of whether a player will like the game.  The good news is that while the vast majority of players do in fact continue to play, we offer a rental program to help introduce new players to the game.

We rent a limited number of equipment sets on a first come basis. 

We offer a complete package of required equipment including;

  • Helmet, Shoulder Pads, Gloves and Arm Pads for $50.00 per season*. (Players supply their own lacrosse stick)

Equipment will be issued in January prior to the first day of practice.  We will post specific equipment dates and procedures on the website.

*Rentals are first come subject to availability and requires a $200.00 replacement deposit which will be returned when equipment is returned.

Returning Players

We are working with an equipment vendor to provide a cost effective equipment solution returning players can purchase.  We will suggest a complete equipment package that will be offered (below retail) which includes;

  • Helmet, Shoulder Pads, Gloves, Arm Pads and a complete stick. 

Players may purchase equipment from any vendor of their choice.  We provide a suggested option but players may purchase equipment from any vendor of their choice. Equipment must be certified LACROSSE equipment.  i.e. Hockey equipment is  not allowed.

In keeping with our philosophy and mission to grow the sport we believe purchasing equipment for returning players is a better alternative than continually renting from the program.  Equipment is a personal thing!  For many players, this package will be the last set of equipment you will buy.  The bulk of the cost is in the helmet (the package helmet retails for around $130.00).  The helmet we have chosen is a completely adjustable helmet and will adapt to your player for multiple seasons.  Rental fees for a complete year (which includes multiple seasons and the summer) will greatly exceed the purchase price.
