The reason lacrosse is a "country club sport" beside the lack of scholarships is that in the pal or towns team like football, most towns, you're given all the equipment to play when you sign up for a reasonable price. And travel cost 3K - 4K . Lacrosse, you have to supply the helmet, stick, the shoulder pads, elbow pads and any other equipment you need...HS gives you the helmet and a uniform. When my son started to play, there were only a few spots around me where I could get the equipment...now at least you can get starter at Dicks, even some Walmarts.
The game must be grown to lower the cost of initiation agreed. Have to support those who are growing this great game.
