Important Notes Regarding Lacrosse Sticks:
Your daughter must have a girl’s lacrosse stick (not a boy’s stick).
If at all possible, please provide her with a stick with at least some leather stringing. The all nylon strung sticks that are often marketed toward beginners and can be very frustrating for players at any level to catch and throw with. The nylon strings do not break in easily and do not have the same give nor grip as those with some leather stringing. See photos below for examples.
Most stores will accept returned sticks in an unused condition.
Stick length is longer, however not too long, especially for the smaller players. Have your daughter place her hand on the stick or shaft touching the plastic head of the stick. Run the stick down her arm so that the bottom of the stick protrudes past her armpit. There should be about 4-6 inches sticking out beyond her armpit. Please cut off anything longer than that with a hack saw, lightly sand it, and then cap it with the rubber or plastic butt the stick came with. If you want to verify length before cutting it, we can mark the shaft with permanent marker where the cut should be made during the first practice.
We attempt to place every girl interested in playing on a team. However, registration is solely limited by the number of coaches we have. Therefore, if you would be willing to volunteer to coach or assistant coach a team, please let us know. We would love to have you! The more coaches we have, the more teams we can have, and ensures that every girl that wants to play lacrosse can!
