What kind of protective equipment do I need?
**All players are required to have National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) certified equipment.**
- Lacrosse Helmet (a hockey or football helmet will not work)
- Lacrosse gloves
- Shoulder pads
- Slash guards (elbow pads)
- Athletic cup
- Rib protectors (not required, but recommended)
Where can I buy lacrosse gear?
There are many places to buy gear. Play it Again Sports, Dicks Sporting Goods, and Breakaway Sports (Bellevue) all carry Lacrosse gear. There are many online retailers that you can order from. You can also rent gear from Marysville Play it Again Sports for the season.
Who can play for the Mukilteo Lacrosse club?
Well that depends on the age of the player. At the high school level, the league has very strict team boundaries. All varsity and junior varsity players must attend school in the Mukilteo school district. There is some grey area for kids who go to private schools or are home schooled. The younger levels of play are much less strict, players can pick where they want to play based upon convenience. However, it is good to start playing and developing friendships with players from the same school district.
How much does the season cost?
Unfortunately, lacrosse is an expensive sport and since we are a club team there is no funding from the school district. There are fees for the fields, jerseys, insurance, and referees to name a few of the team expenses. Each player is responsible for supplying their own gear, in addition to team dues. This may seem high, however Mukilteo Lacrosse charges well below the average of teams in the area.

- High School Boys – $550
- 7th and 8th Boys – $350

- K – 2nd Boys and Girls – Free Registration (Players must provide their own gear. Marysville Play it Again Sports offers season rentals for $100)
- In addition to the team dues, every player is required to be a member of US Lacrosse . Players can register for $30.00 on the US Lacrosse website. Membership is valid for 1 year.
Can girls play on the boy’s lacrosse team?
Absolutely! Girls are welcome to play on the boy’s co-ed 3/4 & 5/6 teams, however they will not be given special treatment in drills or in games. Boy’s lacrosse is a contact sport and the other teams will not take it easy on female members of the team so we would be doing a disservice to the girls by doing so.
