Equipment Loaner Program


JJYL will not be running a loaner program for the fall or winter of 2021 (loaner is expected to return in full in spring 2022), however if you purchase new gear after September 1, 2021 and try out our fall or winter clinics and decide lacrosse is not right for your son, we will purchase that gear back from you at our cost.  Full details below.

To qualify for the buy back program, you must provide the following:

  • You must be a NEW TO JJYL PARTICIPANT to qualify (that means you haven't participated in any JJYL season or clinics in the past)
  • Submit a receipt showing proof of purchase of the gear dated between September 1, 2021 until the end of the buy back program (if registered for fall clinics we will buy back gear until  November 15, 2021; if registered for winter clinics we will buy back gear until March 1, 2022).
  • The gear we purchase must be listed on the receipt.
  • The gear must be in usable condition (helmets will be refurbished by JJYL)
  • Helmets must be Cascade brand and white in color
  • Shoulder pads must have the heart guard protection for Commotio Cordis and be NOCSAE performance standard ND200 complaint (see details below)
  • Any gear that is a different brand than our list may be rejected, but typically if its in good condition we will accept it.
  • We will only refund to the maximum cost that we normally purchase gear at â?? if your gear costs more than the list below, we will not reimburse over these prices: Cascade Helmets ($90); Shoulder Pads with HART guard ($40); Arm Pads ($20); Gloves ($25); Sticks ($30)

To participate for Winter, please email us by November 15 letting us know what gear you are purchasing new.  If you do not email us and receive a confirmation by Nov 15, 2021 we will not buy back the gear (as we have to plan our inventory/budget).  All gear must be handed in by March 1.

 E-mail us at if you want to participate or have any questions.

Gear can be purchased at Lacrosse Unlimited in Mount Kisco.

Starting in 2022, all players participating with JJYL must follow new standards in shoulder pad gear to protect against commotio cordis*, a potentially fatal condition.

This new requirement - which is aimed at protecting our kids â?? means all shoulder pads worn by youth field players must meet the NOCSAE performance standard ND200 (read about it here) in order to be deemed legal for play. All protective shoulder & chest pads meeting the new NOCSAE ND200 standard will feature a noticeably larger and more robust chest plate specifically designed to help shield the cardiac system from ball impact. All shoulder and chest pads meeting the new ND200 standard must have an SEI certification mark like below to be considered legal for play in 2022.

JJYL has partnered with Lacrosse Unlimited to offer you a wide selection of pads to meet these new standards. Due to this new rule going into effect on January 2022 and the supply constraints manufacturers are still experiencing, it is highly recommended you upgrade to these new pads today as stock is predicted to be low or nonexistent next year.

You can order from the link below - choose the pads that best meet your needs. Note that the Maverick EKG Charger pads are great quality that we use in our loaner program. You should also know that if you participated in our loaner program in 2020 or 2021 (this past season) your sonâ??s pads should meet this standard (if you have any questions email us

We believe these new shoulder pad requirements, combined with our new AEDs (thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our community) will help keep our kids safe!


* Commotio cordis most commonly results from an impact to the chest with a hardball (e.g., a baseball or lacrosse ball) during sports activity. The sudden focal distortion of the myocardium results in ventricular fibrillation, causing sudden cardiac arrest in an otherwise structurally normal heart.
