Gear Recommendations

Lacrosse Heads:

Although lacrosse heads can be expensive, Sentry believes a quality head can be very beneficial to players of all ages. Also, different heads translate better to different positions. For example, a defensive head should be wider than an offensive head due to an easier ability to pick up ground balls. Offensive head should be slightly narrower to protect the ball better against checks. Below you will find Sentry head recommendations.

Depending on the age of a player the $50 shafts work just as good as the $100 - $200 shafts. The key is finding a shaft that looks good based on personal preferences. Once a player enters high school or the college level of play, we recommend selecting a stronger lighter material. From experience we would recommend any type of scandium or titanium shaft.

The most important feature of the lacrosse glove is flexibility. The player should try out different gloves to find one that fits him well, where he is able to move his fingers easily and grasp the lacrosse shaft with no issues. Here are a few pairs that I believe work very well.

Offense/Defense Gloves  Goalie Gloves
Maverik Rome RX3  Warrior Regulator
Brine King 5 Warrior Burn
Warrior Rabil  
STX Cell 3  

Arm pads:

Arm pads usually vary by position as well, but again it comes down to player preference. For offensive players, we recommend getting larger arm pads to cover as much of the arm as possible to protect against stick checks. For defensive players, we recommend arm pads that are slightly smaller for greater mobility.

 Attack Elbow Pads  Middie Elbow Pads  Defense Elbow Pads
STX Cell 3 Warrior Rabil STX Cell 3
STX Stallion STX Cell 3 Maverik Rome RX-30
Maverik Rome RX-3 STX Stallion HD  

Shoulder Pads:

Like arm pads and gloves, shoulder pads are all about personal preference. However, we believe having a light pair of shoulder pads with protection are the two most important factors you should look for when choosing the right pair. Below are a few recommendations for shoulder pads.

  Maverik Rome RX-3   Midfield 
Rabil Ultralyte  Defense 


As for helmets, We fully support any type of Cascade helmet. They have been in the game for decades and we believe they make the best helmet today. Any type of Cascade helmet will be great for all ages.
