Below is a list of equipment required for the both the girls and boys game. Keep in mind that Dick's Sporting Goods and Monkey Sports are great places to try pieces on but it is always best to price out your options.
Dick's Sporting Goods does have this coupon for the month of January.
Saturday April 8th 2023 is Opening Day for Nashua Blast Lacrosse. Most Blast games run on a Sunday schedule, but due to the Easter weekend, our first game of the season WILL be on Saturday April 8th. Times and locations TBD.
Many retailers offer "starter" packages which include most gear and a helmet. This can save you significantly and is a nice option for a new player to the sport.
Note Com Lax/Pure Hockey of Nashua and Dick's Sporting Goods run several discount days and coupons that benefit Blast.
Feel free to go to Com Lax and ask for help to pick out the right type of fit for your player (whether you buy it there or not they are very helpful on fitting).
USL EQUIPMENT FITTING GUIDE is a good reference for details on what the gear looks like for both boys and girls.
BOYS REQUIRED* GEAR:
Helmet (lacrosse specific, not football or hockey)
Shoulder Pads (EKG Certified)
GIRLS REQUIRED* GEAR:
Spandex shorts (for under the kilt)
Tank top/Sports Bra (for under the top)
*Goalies will require additional gear. New players interested in trying goal keeping, please express that interest to your coach. Do not purchase goalie specific gear ahead of time.
**Soccer cleats may be worn in lacrosse (not vice versa). However, there are lacrosse specific cleats you may find provide better support based on the nature of the running and dodging in lacrosse.
***Do not buy a new player an expensive stick. There are many suitable and affordable lacrosse sticks for beginner boys and girls. Do not feel compelled to purchase a high end/high price model to start. There are differences between boys and girls sticks so please make sure you buy a boys model for a boy or a girls model for a girl.
Blast Magnet and Sticker Sets are BACK !! Keep an eye out at indoor practices !!
Nashua blast alumni Kirsten McIntire along with her parents John and Ciki McIntire
It is our absolute pleasure to announce the signing of yet another Nashua Blast alumni. Nashua South High Senior Kirsten McIntire (seen in photo) signed her National Letter of Intent to continue her lacrosse career at Merrimack College in the fall.
Kirsten has been a member of the Nashua Blast since as far back as 2008 when she started playing at the 11U level as only a 2nd grader. Kirsten has grown to become an extremely hard worker on and off the lacrosse field and her recruitment by Division 1 Merrimack College is a testament to that hard work.
Kirsten didn't end her Nashua Blast involvment once she moved on to play at Nashua South, she has always come back to the program to help coach the youth of the city and give back to the sport she loves.
Thank you Kirsten for all that you have done for the Nashua Blast and we want to wish you all the best of luck as you continue your student / athlete career at the next level.
