2) Refresh your mesh. Offensive players, its cheap and easy, but it is the most important thing you can do right now to change your level of play. East Coast Dyes Vortex semi-hard and semi-soft lacrosse mesh is literally changing playing styles and dodging. The StringKing 3X and 3S performance lacrosse kits are still screaming off the shelves, and the East Coast Dyes Hero semi-hard and semi-soft and Hero-Striker lacrosse mesh are still the top choices for those that are weather challenged. Spend the few extra bucks, and get the best technology in mesh that there is to offer - so you look your best at those initial practices. Either string it up yourself, or see what it’s like to have a real pro do it and you will be happy you took the time and effort to get it right at the beginning of the season.
3) Proper footwear that fits properly for the field conditions you play on. So many people go through all the trouble to dial up all of their equipment and then reach for the bag only to realize that their cleats or turfs are sloppy, nobbed out, broken down relics from last year. Whether your young or old, there is no excuse for bad ankle support, bad traction and bad planning. Check out our blog posts and videos to learn about the best 5 lacrosse cleats and turfs for 2017 and see what everyone else is lacing up from Nike and Under Armour.

Freshly strung head on your current shaft, freshly strung and broken-in back up stick, new mouthguard and proper fitting footwear. By having these essentials you will be ready to start your Spring season off in the right direction.
5) Consider a complete stick as a back up stick. All players, no matter what level should have some type of back up stick.
