Lacrosse Practice Packages Your Players Can Actually Afford

February 25, 2014

Luckily since lacrosse is a growing market, even the more entry-level brands are stepping up their game when it comes to affordable performance (and even the top tier brands are offering more affordable options).

Whether your school eats the cost of the practice gear, or the players themselves are responsible for paying for it, you don't have to spend as much as on your game day apparel.  Here are some affordable package options all around the $50 per player range.

Augusta

A typical practice package includes a shirt, shorts, and a reversible pinnie for scrimmages, costing in the $40-$50 range per player.

 

Badger Sport

A shooter shirt/pinnie/shorts package will come in at around $45, which can be lower if your team dealer offers additional discounts.

 

Champion

Its Reversible Lax Pinnie is quite popular and, along with a shirt and shorts, costs only $50. Champion is well-regarded because it offers a ton of discounts to team dealers (buy 3 get 1 free, etc), so even schools with tight budgets can afford Champion’s practice gear.  Make sure to ask your dealer if they are currently running any promotions, especially if you are ordering off season.

All of these brands produce gear that players can boast about, but that doesn’t mean they’re the best option. Many schools opt to wear these brands on game-days and sport budget brands during practice. Players who are brand-conscious may push to wear the prominent brands all the time, which is certainly acceptable—as long as they’re willing to pay accordingly.

If your school is looking to purchase lacrosse practice apparel, you should contact a team dealer, which can help you build a custom order that will maximize your practice apparel’s quality at a discounted price. Team dealers can facilitate your apparel order and get you a steep discount on top brands’ gear, ridding you of at least one headache as the season approaches.
