F.A.Q


Below are options for complete beginner gear packages.  SFLAX does have loaner gear available for FIRST TIME players, cost is $50 per season. All players MUST have a mouth guard, protective cups are strongly encouraged especially for 12U and 14U players. Mid-ankle or better yet, High-ankle cleats are strongly recommended for superior ankle support. Contact us with any questions.

Starter packages are available from:
Lax.com
Lacrosse Monkey

Loaner sticks & eye gear are available for FIRST TIME players!

MOUTH GUARD:
Thin, moldable mouth guards are the best for protecting those pearly whites and they’re the most comfortable. We recommend definitely buying a case so the girls don’t lose it!

Aero Guard Youth/Adult by SISU

CLEATS:
While cleats are not required to play, please consider getting them for your player. They offer superior traction & safety, especially when the grass fields are wet. Mid-ankle or better yet, High-ankle cleats are strongly recommended for superior ankle support. Anything we can do to minimize those ankle injuries!
High-height Under Armour Cleats

EQUIPMENT/GEAR PACKAGES:
You can save $ by buying a package that includes a stick, eye gear & carrying case:
STX Lacrosse Exult 200 Youth Pack (includes stick, eye gear & a carrying case) w/ Crux Mesh Pocket

Often there are a few packages in a certain color being offered for a great price through Amazon Warehouse Deals. These are brand new – only issue with them is their original external packaging was damaged, so Amazon can’t sell them as “new”.

STICKS:
You will need a girl’s stick – not a boy’s stick – so be careful what you buy! We highly recommend you get an STX Stick with a Crux Mesh Pocket. This new mesh pocket is a HUGE game changer for all players, but especially for younger, beginning players. It really helps them keep the ball in their pocket!

 – STX Rookie
5th grade & up:
 - STX Women’s 4sight +S
 - STX Women's 4sight Focus Titanium (lightweight)

With the growth of our boys and girls participation, your help is needed more than ever.
A great way to support your child’s lacrosse experience is by becoming a volunteer for
the lacrosse program. It’s best to get started when your child first signs up for lacrosse,
so that you both can start together.
Volunteers are always need to do the following:
• Coach or assist the coach
• Keep score
• Run the clock
• Line the fields
• Manage equipment and uniforms
• Chaperone trips
• Organize a booster club and manage booster activities
• Organize coach and player clinics
• Hold cookouts and social events
• Organize carpooling and practices and games
• Assist in making schedules
• Assist during registration
• Photograph players and games
• Create a yearbook or program
• Take children to local and national lacrosse games and event
Or anything else you can think of!!

We welcome you to inquire about helping with SFLAX or becoming a member of the board.

SFLAX sets a high standard for sportsmanship from our coaches, players, and parents.

We ask specifically for parents’ active involvement in making our sidelines a fun and positive place to be on game day. We will not tolerate unsportsmanlike conduct from members of our organization.

Please review the following guidelines for appropriate parental behavior:
  • ALL parents must sit on the opposite sidelines from the team boxes. This includes all photographers and videographers
  • CHEER— DON’T COACH— from the sidelines.
  • Parents do not have the right to address any player who is not their child, except to compliment him.  Regardless of what occurs on the field, parents should not be speaking to players, opposing coaches, or officials.
  • Be a role model for the young players you are watching.  Display your enthusiasm and composure, by supporting both teams on the field positively.
  • Honor the game by respecting our opponents and officials.  “Without an opponent, there is no game.   Without an official, it’s just a scrimmage.”
  • Leave fields better than you found them, and obey all posted rules about parking & pets. Please make sure that players clean up all trash, water bottles, etc. from sidelines & team areas after games.  Alcohol is not permitted at any sflax game.
  • Just as importantly, parents must recognize the difficulties involved in officiating a lacrosse game.  Officials have a tremendously tough job and often receive unwarranted criticism.  They are doing the best they can and the growth of lacrosse in New Mexico depends upon them!
US Lacrosse in collaboration with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) writes the rules for high school lacrosse. US Lacrosse writes and publishes a stand-alone youth rule book for ages 14U and below. The rule sets in this book align with the principles of the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM), helping to ensure age-appropriate rules that allow athletes to progress and reach their maximum potential. US Lacrosse also publishes rule sets to govern box lacrosse.
