The lacrosse community is probably one of the tightest groups with in sports and every now and then we hear things that just make us want to flip out. Here are some of those things…
Do you have an aspiring young laxer joining the family this year? At ComLax we understand that Lacrosse is a growing game in both Boys and Girls games. On the Boys side we worked with Maverik Lacrosse to create a starter package that includes everything your new laxer will need for the season, and on the Girls side we have a couple options from Maverik, STX and Brine. We understand lacrosse can be an expensive sport but we don’t want that to stop the game from growing so we figured out a way to pass along great deals to everyone!
Just For the Boys:
We worked with Maverik Lacrosse to release the new Charger Starter Package for 2014 that includes everything you need to play for only $179.99.
The Maverik Charger line is great for the young players who are new to lacrosse and want to hone the basic skills of the game. The Charger stick offers their GRIP ZONE technology that helps beginners learn where to place their hands on the stick when passing and catching, making it easier to learn.This deal is great because the helmet alone can run you $119.99 on its own, so with the entire package you save well over $150 which is great for family budgets.
But say you have already had a laxer in the family and you don’t need the entire package setup, we also have other packages that include just the pads and stick which includes:
A great deal at only $99.99 you can get everything you need except a helmet. But say you also already have a stick in this package you can get a backup stick as well at only $25!
Say you have already got a starter set from us in the past but your young laxer has outgrown his pads. We also just offer the protection options in a package that includes:
This is great for families who may already have a helmet and stick for the young laxer who is growing but still needs to get the full protection setup.
But while you’re at it here are a couple things that we recommend that you may want to purchase as well:
Equipment Bags: Do you really want to be carrying his stinky gear in your hands NO WAY!
Mouth Guards: These are required to play and they get lost often …so get a couple TRUST US!
Cleats: Why not get everything in one stop we offer great deals on lacrosse cleats!
Socks: He can now match his uniform to complete the look or go wild and stand out!
Reversible: Get him a reversible so that he can show up ready to pick a side!
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun:
We also offer a couple different options for girls who are just starting out lacrosse as well. Girls have significantly less equipment than boys do where they are only required to wear a set of goggles, a mouth guard and a stick though gloves are optional.
We do offer a couple different options for our girls starter packages:
Maverik’s Twist Package includes the Twist Complete Stick, Cascade Poly Pro Goggles and the Twist backpack.
STX’s Level Starter Package that includes STX Level Complete Stick, STX 4Sight+ Youth Goggle and the STX Essential Stick Bag.
While you are at it we also recommend the following:
Mouth Guards: PLURAL! They get dropped on the ground, lost, or they end up being chewed apart.
Cleats: We offer great deals on girls cleats so why not get everything in one stop!
Socks: We have tons of socks to complete the look or match their team colors!
Consistency is what every lacrosse player is working hard to achieve, you want to throw the exact same way over and over again. Any lacrosse player who has ever played hates playing in bad weather conditions not just because you could be cold, wet or extremely hot; they hate it because it messes up your pocket. Consistency is the name of the game and in terrible weather conditions this goes right out the window.
In the early days of lacrosse wooden sticks were hand carved and strung up with what we now call “traditional” where natural animal gut was used along with stringing and leathers to form the pocket on the stick. Yes you did read that correctly natural animal intestine was used to string the sidewall of sticks because it is extremely durable, most sticks you see still have original gut along the sidewall. In the early days of lacrosse sticks didn’t necessarily have fully formed “pockets” like we do today, instead cradling was a skill necessary to maintain posession of the ball.
Cascade has been the gold standard for lacrosse helmets for the past 20 years. With every new helmet Cascade releases, they put in thousands of hours of research and development to produce the most advanced helmets on the market. In addition, Cascade manufactures updates on their equipment that are going to help protect players and deliver that high-quality performance and style that all you lacrosse players are looking for.
In 2014, Cascade applied technologies that they have designed previously and tweaked them to create the best helmet ever, essentially if the Pro7 and CPX-R had a baby, the Cascade R is what you would get! The Cascade R has the most advanced impact management system to date, utilizing features like a new Dual-liner system, R series Monoshell, Hardtail SPRfit and the R series components.
The Seven Tech liner was originally released when the Pro7 helmet released and it is the revolutionary impact management system that is designed to cushion high-energy impacts and spread out the energy throughout the seven tech pods in the helmet. When the Seven Tech liner is impacted the pods compress laterally to spread out the impact and reset within seconds to allow for protection against any further hits to the head.
