What are the key parts of a lacrosse glove?
The main components of a lacrosse glove are the palm, the padding on the back of the hand, and the thumb/fingers. You should look for the right balance of feel between palm and stick, amount of padding, and movement that fits your preferences. Using gloves that have more movement and flexibility will sacrifice some protection, and bulkier gloves will provide that extra padding but lose out in range of motion.
Why do lacrosse players wear gloves?
Lacrosse gloves are required to play (in men’s lacrosse and for all goalies). They protect the player’s hands from stick checks, body contact from other players, and help prevent blisters on the hands.
