Lacrosse Equipment Maintenance Guide: Storing Gear for the Off-Season

When the lacrosse season ends, it’s time to start thinking about how to properly store your gear for the off-season. Taking a bit of time now to clean and store your equipment correctly can make a big difference when it’s time to hit the field again. 

Not only does it help your gear last longer, but it also ensures you’re ready to go when the new season starts. In this latest blog update from, we will explore how to take care of your lacrosse gear in the off-season.

Clean Your Gear

The first step in off-season storage is to thoroughly clean all your equipment. Dirt, sweat, and grime can cause wear and tear over time, so a good cleaning is essential.

Lacrosse Helmets

Remove any removable pads and liners and wash them with mild soap and water. Wipe down the helmet shell and facemask with a damp cloth. Make sure everything is completely dry before reassembling to prevent mold and mildew. Check out our range of lacrosse helmets if you need a new one for the next season.

Lacrosse Sticks

Clean the head and shaft separately. Use warm water and mild soap to clean the head, making sure to remove all dirt and debris from the pocket and strings. Wipe down the shaft with a damp cloth. Once dry, consider restringing the head if the pocket is showing signs of wear. If you’re looking for new options, browse our collection of lacrosse sticks.

Lacrosse Pads, Gloves, and Protective Gear

Machine wash any removable liners and wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth. For gloves, pay special attention to the fingers and palm areas where grime can build up. Lay them out to air dry completely.

Inspect for Damage

After cleaning, inspect each piece of equipment for signs of damage or wear. Look for cracks in helmets, worn-out pads, frayed strings, and any other potential issues. Addressing these now can save you from unpleasant surprises next season.
