Apparel: A Closer Look at Traditional Strings

As the sport of lacrosse continues to grow, so does the market for lacrosse-inspired apparel. As a result, we’re starting to see more and more companies start to cater to the lacrosse player and the lacrosse culture.

Last fall, UMass-Boston laxer Aaron Pollock started Traditional Strings, an apparel company that puts out lacrosse-inspired clothing, currently ranging from t-shirts to shorts.

All of the apparel that Traditional Strings makes is related back to what a lacrosse player finds familiar. Shirt styles include “Rip Some Rope” and “Time and Room”, nods to those of you who might be shooters, and “Endless Season”, which any laxer understands who ends up playing, spring, summer, fall, and indoor ball.

The apparel is currently available online at A sampling of some Traditional Strings apparel is below.




Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
