Frequently Asked Questions


What kid of equipment does my child need?

  • Stick
  • Lacrosse Helmet (NOCSAE approved Hockey helmet not acceptable) and attached mouth guard
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Arm Pads
  • Gloves ( Hockey gloves do not flex properly for lacrosse )
  • Athletic supporter with protective cup
  • Rib pads are strongly recommended!
  • Rubber Sole cleats (soccer cleats are fine) 


Why do I need to sign my child up for U.S. Lacrosse?

In addition to being the leading national lacrosse organization and a great resource for information on the game, U.S. Lacrosse provides important supplemental insurance coverage to our program and your child.


Why haven’t I had to sign my child up for U.S. Lacrosse in the past?

In previous years, the program included the U.S. Lacrosse fee in the overall registration fee and then registered all participants at one time.  This was a difficult administrative burden.  It also created an “arms length” relationship between parents and U.S. Lacrosse.  By having parents register directly with U.S. Lacrosse, we believe everyone will learn more about the organization and its impact on the growth of lacrosse in the U.S.


When does the season start?

During the month of March we will hold a series of optional indoor practices at the Marblehead High School Field House.  Practices will move outside in late March or early April depending on the conditions of the playing fields.


When will my child practice?

Practice schedules will be determined in March.  Typically teams practice twice a week after school.  U-9 is held on Sunday morning from 9:00-10:30.


When are the games?

Games are always played on Sundays.  There are no games on Easter Weekend or Memorial Day Weekend.
