CVLA Equipment Requirements
U7 and U9 (previously Mini-Tyke and Tyke):
Players will only require some basic hockey equipment: hockey helmet with facemask, mouth guard, shoulder pads, gloves, athletic support and cup, and elbow pads. Soft volleyball-style knee pads can be used. Hockey sock tape is helpful to keep knee pads in place.
U11, U13, U15 and U17 (previously Novice, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget):
These divisions require the same equipment along with lacrosse arm pads and kidney and back protectors. Shoulder pads should have a bicep pad. Field/Box lacrosse gloves offer excellent protection and flexibility. Short cuff hockey gloves can be used, but they don’t offer the same grip or flexibility.
Goalie equipment is provided by the Association, except for helmets. Goalies in younger divisions can use a regular helmet with a dangler throat guard attached.
