A: Not really and it depends. At the younger ages, a willingness to learn and to run is important. The most important thing to ensure an enjoyable on-floor experience for your child is for you, as the parent to get a stick as well and play catch with your son and daughter for 10-15 minutes a day. After 2-3 weeks you will be amazed at how much more fun the practices and games will be for him/her.
It is never too late to start to play. As long as the player is willing to run (and make an effort), no age is too old. Given some effort playing catch with a parent or friend or even tossing the ball against a convenient building wall, you can pick up enough passing/catching/shooting techniques to get by
A: The Ontario Lacrosse Association has put out a beginner's guide to Lacrosse in Ontario and the equipment pages are still valid. See document below for a detailed equipment and player/parent guide, an interesting read for anyone.
