NorthWest Lacrosse Association (NW Lax) has boys’ lacrosse gear to rent out. For a fee of $50 a youth can rent a helmet, stick, shoulder pads, gloves and elbow pads for the season. A fee of $25 will be charged for all rentals that do not include a helmet. All rentals will require $150 deposit (in the form of a bank check only). All gear must be returned at the end of the season, or the deposit check will be cashed.
Please be advised that the lacrosse gear will be rented out to U7 and U9 boys first based on the order in which they registered; boys from U11, U13 and U15 can rent out gear only after all U7 and U9 requests have been satisfied. The purpose of the rental program is to let younger kids try the sport for a season without having to make an investment in gear. However, as they advance to higher teams, they do need to obtain their own gear.
Gear will be rented out on Sunday afternoon, March 5th, from 1:00 to 5:00, at West Valley School for all registered players. Bring one check for a $150 deposit. Your son/daughter needs to come with you for sizing of gear. We have a fair amount of rental gear, but cannot guarantee gear for all of the participants that need gear. If you are looking to purchase gear, you can purchase complete sets online for less than $200 at www.sportstop.com, www.lacrossemonkey.com or www.lax.com
Chuck Reeves is looking for several parents to help with the equipment committee. We have scheduled March 12th as an additional gear rental day.
All gear needs to be collected at the end of the season. Gear will be re-rented for summer camps. If you would like to help, please contact Chuck Reeves at 212-6042. If you can help Chuck rent out the gear on March 5th, it will give you a good understanding of how the program operates, making it easier to manage at the end of the season. Please contact Chuck with any questions…we are looking forward to a fantastic season!
