Shipping Sports Equipment London to US

<p>My son will be in England for a sporting event next month. He will have a large gear bag plus lacrosse sticks. The sticks generally count as a second item beyond the gear bag. He's then going on to Spain for a vacation and doesn't want to haul his stuff around Europe.</p>

<p>What's the best way to ship it from England to the US? I'm looking for something cheaper than excess baggage charges ... it would be possible, but unwieldy for us to bring it home as our excess baggage as we'll be there for the games.</p>

<p>We are flying American Airlines if it matters.</p>
