Miscellaneous Girls Equipment Information:

  • Goalie Equipment is issued to the goalies by the club and returned to the coaches at the end of the season. 
  • Lacrosse Sticks:
    • The minimum stick length is set by US Lacrosse rules
      • Most sticks, when purchased are long for our younger players. When the butt of the stick is placed in the player's armpit, the player's fingers should be close to the base of the stick head. If they are too long, the coaches will cut them down at practice.
      • 1st~6th grade may shortened to accomodate smaller girls
      • Overall length must be between: 35½” min and 43¼” max
    • Optional:  Sticks can have grip tape on them. Using hockey/trainers' tape, wrap the bottom 6”~8” of the stick. Place a second wrap on the stick about 6"-8" down from the head. These mark the normal hand positions for the player. If you are unsure, the coaches will tape sticks at practices.
    • Pocket adjustment. Loosen the “Gripper” strings of the pocket at the bottom of the head. “Gripper” strings are the center strings running parallel to the shaft. A looser pocket helps keep control of the ball while catching and cradling. A legal lacrosse stick pocket is one where by the lacrosse ball just barely clears the top of the side stick side rail. If you are unsure, coaches can adjust pockets at practice.
    • When your stick gets muddy, rinse it off at home. Fill a bucket with warm water and dunk the stick a few times. Mud stiffens the pocket and makes it harder to control the ball
