What features make the Best Lacrosse Shoulder Pads?
Lacrosse shoulder pads for players come in variety of options and protection levels. For the most part all offer full torso protection with shoulder caps and bicep pads. We recommend that Youth Players wear full Shoulder Pads designed to offer the maximum protection possible. Lacrosse is a Full Contact sport, players run into each other recovering ground balls, lacrosse sticks can swing around, and players can get checked on the back and sides. Ideally players should wear a lot of protection, playing at any level. As a lacrosse player gets older and more experience, they start to get more position specific. A defensive player and the offensive midfielder will start to reduce their pads for more mobility or shooting ability. These types of shoulder protection are labeled as speed pads or shoulder pad liners. This is most common for high school and collegiate players. Men's Lacrosse Shoulder Pads often come with the ability to customize for extra protection or minimal, so the player can feel free to make the choice as needed. Youth Lacrosse Shoulder Pads are commonly paired with Lacrosse Rib Pads for added protection. Rib Pads are more common for Box LacrossePlayers.
