SockGuy Lacrosse Socks $9.99 – $12.99
Wearing crazy socks during a lacrosse game is like wearing ugly sweaters during a holiday Christmas party, it’s just lax bro culture. Players of all ages love them, and the more they clash with the jersey the better! Don’t ask me why, that’s just the way it goes. They believe that one’s skill is directly correlated with how awesome their socks are, and they have studies to prove it.
Gift Ideas for $25 – $50
Lacrosse Shorts $24.99 – $49.99
You can never have too many lacrosse shorts! (Just make sure they have pockets) lacrosse is not just a sport, it’s a lifestyle and one’s personality is shown directly through the artwork of their shorts. Although they were designed primarily to be worn at practice, Kids will wear them to school everyday and they will become a main part of their wardrobe. That is why you need them to have pockets or else the recipient will use the waistband of the shorts to hold their smart phones and then they will inevitably drop and shatter their screen. Trust me; pockets are a big deal when it comes to shorts. My college team boycotted practice unless the school agreed to put pockets in our game shorts.
Gift Ideas for $50 – $75

Bounce Back $199
I am sure you have all heard of the phrase “ball on wall’ before? If not, that is okay because you will hear about it soon. Playing “ball on wall” is the number one practice technique used by players and coaches to get better stick skills by throwing a ball up against the wall and catching it repeatedly. The only difference between that and this product is the Maverik Bounce Back will prevent your son or daughter from breaking the stucco and making loud banging noises up against the side of the house. LONG story LONG; the Maverick bounce back “WILL” make you a better player, as long as you put the time in. Good players practice when the coach tells them to, great players practice when no one is watching. The bounce back is fun and beneficial for all and we highly recommend it here at Monkey Sports.
