The Wahoos will be sporting Orange helmets with an Orange visor, Blue chin, Orange/White chin strap and Blue decals on top of the helmet.

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.

i believe virginia was forced to leave gait due to the university’s contract with nike. they may be in stx or nike gear in the next year or two, same with Duke

Ha wow I think is some of the best news in years for UVA lacrosse. I strongly believe that those ugly Gait helmets actually discouraged players from going to UVA. This is a big step for the program!

Wouldn’t be surprised if this was the only season Gait supplied teams used Pro 7’s. Sounds like a temporary thing to me.

Heard Gait had a defect with their helmets for this spring so they had to supply Pro7s instead
