I remember watching guys play lacrosse when I was in college. It was the first time I was introduced to the sport, since my highschool didn’t have a team. I remember the thrill of the game, watching the players run back and forth. It reminds me of a combination between soccer and hockey. If you know someone who plays lacrosse, then this selection of lacrosse gifts will be right up their alley. There is training equipment, gear, gifts for the team, presents for coaches, and just some cool lacrosse themed stuff.
Unique gifts for lacrosse players
Looking for something unusual for a lacrosse player? Get a flag made from lacrosse sticks, or have their home state recreated with sticks. These are great one of a kind gifts for someone special in your life.
A personalized lacrosse print with their name and number makes a unique lacrosse gift for seniors to commemorate their time on the team.
Want something really out of the ordinary? Give them some lacrosse pasta. Yes, you heard right. This pasta is shaped like lacrosse helmets and players!
Lacrosse gifts for speed and agility
Lacrosse players need to be fast. These gifts will help them build speed and agility. An agility ladder is great for all ages and can be set up in the backyard or packed for a work out in the park. Some sets even come with cones and additional equipment.
Reaction balls help improve speed and hand-eye coordination.
Speed hurdles are another way to build speed and agility. Many of these training gifts are adjustable so they can be used for adults and kids. Plus they are great ways to build skills needed for many sports, not just lacrosse. Most come with their own carrying case, making them easy to store and transport to wherever they want to work out.
Personalized lacrosse gifts
These canvases can be customized with the player’s name and number. They make great lacrosse gifts for seniors due to the inspirational phrase printed on them. These words will guide them into the next phase of their lives.
A personalized tumbler will be appreciated by a team mom or coach.
Custom lacrosse balls are good lacrosse gifts for the team. Get each player a ball with their name and player number, or have a photo printed on the ball. These make cool stocking stuffers too.
4. Gear Bag
Useful lacrosse gift ideas
All players need a gear bag to lug their equipment around. These bags are made specifically for lacrosse so there is a place to secure their sticks.
Lacrosse players will also need gloves. There are different gloves for players and goalies, so make sure you know which kind they need.
If they are just starting out, you can get them a pair of lacrosse shoes so they don’t slip on the turf. If they have been playing a while, they probably know how they want their shoes to fit and may prefer to buy their own.
Lacrosse gifts for a girl
If you are looking for some lacrosse accessories, jewelry is a good option. While she won’t be wearing the earrings while playing, she can wear them during her leisure time to display her love of the sport.
If she doesn’t have pierced ears, you can get her a lacrosse bracelet. Some of these have a unisex design making them great gifts for a coach or guys on the team.

6. Goal Targets
Lacrosse presents for practice
Goal targets and rebound nets are great items for practicing by themselves.
If they have space in the yard or street to get their buddies together for a game, get them a lacrosse net. You will need two for a game, but one is fine if they plan on practicing by themselves.
After playing for a while, they will need a new stick. They can save their old one for a friend to play a game in the yard.
Lacrosse coach gifts
Coaches put in a lot of time and effort to train, motivate, and build the team. Games are often played on weekends and into the evening hours, taking time away from their families. Show your thanks with a coach picture frame complete with a photo of the team.
Or you can get the coach an engraved whistle.
For another useful gift, give the coach a lacrosse playbook. These are filled with pages they can use to diagram plays.
More gift ideas for lacrosse players
If you know nothing about lacrosse, but still want to get them a really cool lacrosse gift, have a custom wall mount made for their sticks. Choose how many sticks you want it to hold, and have their name engraved on it.
If you’ve watched a lacrosse game, you know what a workout those athletes get. Strenuous workouts equal lots of sweat! While clothes can be washed with some heavy duty laundry detergent, shoes cannot. Give them shoe deodorizer. You can get the kind that just slips into the shoes to eliminate the stench, or get the electric kind that dries the shoes as well.
To avoid having to buy a whole new stick, string kits make a great gift so they can repair the netting themselves.
Lacrosse Christmas gifts
An ornament is an excellent way to preserve this time in their life. You can slip it into a Christmas stocking or hang it on the tree as a surprise. These are also good holiday gifts for the team.
Fitness trackers can help monitor workouts, keep track of blood pressure, sleep, and more. Some have music settings and gps.
For a fun gift, give them Slingball. This is a variation of playing catch but with lacrosse style nets. It is a great game for wannabe lacrosse players, kids, and families.
Or give them a fleece lacrosse blanket to keep them warm on cold nights.
10. Massage Gun
Best gifts for lacrosse players after practice
All athletes have times when, no matter how conditioned they are, they end up with sore muscles. With a massage gun they can work out those kinks without having to wait for an expensive massage appointment.
We know athletes get sweaty. Give them a shower gift set to get clean and stay fresh. You can also get them a cool lacrosse towel to use for drying off after the shower or to take to the beach or pool.
Lacrosse gifts for guys
For days at home, he will love lounging around in these comfortable lacrosse themed pants.
When he ventures out of the house, give him a hoodie with a lacrosse design.
Then give him a pair of cool sport socks to wear, on the field or off.
Of course, you can get him t-shirts too. For someone with a sense of humor, get one with a funny saying. Although I have listed these here for guys, girls will like them too.
