Where can I buy lacrosse equipment for my son and/or daughter?
Summer and Fall is the best time to buy when equipment is on sale! It is highly recommended to purchase equipment in stores where you can test fit equipment. (map quest the address below for directions)
Breakaway Lacrosse (www.breakawaylacrosse.com), 889 New Loudon Rd., Latham, N.Y. 12110 is the premiere lacrosse store located near Albany, NY with the largest lacrosse equipment inventory. It is a great place to test fit many brands. Every lacrosse player should visit their store!!!
Dick’s Sporting Goods on Crossgate Road in Westmere, N.Y. 12203 is an excellent choice for those who are budget minded but want to purchase good quality equipment with many brands in stock to test fit.
Olympia Sports in Bennington! Has limited equipment However, it is a good first stop to check out what they have in stock and to check prices. This is a good store to buy entry to mid-level quality lacrosse sticks.
Buy black, navy, blue, red and white gloves and elbow pads to match MALA’s and MAU’s equipment colors.
Take a trip to those stores with your aspiring player while everything is on sale this summer and fall!!! Any questions about the equipment policy, please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
