Lacrosse season is right around the corner and as you start to pull out your equipment, you may notice that it's time for an upgrade; OR if you are new to lacrosse you simply may need to be pointed in the right direction...so we're here to help!!  Below you will find some of OUR top picks for the 2018 season...picks that we believe will withstand the test of time.

 

Please note a few things as you shop....

Little House - We ENCOURAGE your girls to have deeper than usual pockets, catching and throwing in lacrosse can be very tough to pick up.  We find that this turns a lot of kids off when they start at and early age...we hope that through the encouragement of the coaches, encouragement at home and proper equipment that our girls will grow to LOVE this game too!

Boys sticks & "Fiddle sticks" are illegal to play with in the girls game.  We ask that you invest in the proper equipment and we may also ask that if your daughter has an extra long shaft that it be cut at home.

 

3rd/4th -

Moving younger players into a better stick like the Exult 300 or Crux 300 by STX can make huge improvements in their game. The forgiving pockets on these models translate into confidence on the field for players still struggling with fundamentals. Most parents of beginners don't want to spend too much at first but this can change a girls experience with the game.

 

5th/6th-

Look for the intermediate stick at this age - if you are new to the game the picks below will be a perfect fit.  If you are more advanced and have played for a while, chances are you are already familiar with products out there and have explored your options - GO WITH WHAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH ;)

 

7th/8th-

At this point in your career you've made a commitment to the sport and higher level equipment may positively impact your game.  Make sure you get your hands on some of the newest products out there (head over to Longstreth) - or try out your friends new "wand".
