Choosing The Right Lacrosse Stick

With so many lacrosse brands and lacrosse style pockets in the market today, it can be hard to find the best lacrosse stick that meets your skill set.

One of the main things that determines which lacrosse stick you should buy is what position you play.

A lacrosse stick or crosse is used to play the sport of lacrosse. Players use the lacrosse stick to handle the ball and to strike or “check” opposing players’ sticks, causing them to drop the ball.

The three main parts of a lacrosse stick are the lacrosse head, lacrosse shaft, and lacrosse mesh.

Helpful Hints

  • To learn how to throw properly, find a stick that has a wide face for easier catching and flat scoop for ground ball pickups.
  • Wide head makes it easier to master the fundamentals.
  • Aluminum shafts tend to be more durable.
  • New players should check with their coach to see if their head needs to be broken in before play
  • A short stick is used by both attack and midfield players and is much easier to control than a long stick. Its short length makes it easier to dodge defenders and score in a “tight” situation.
  • The long stick is primarily used by defenders, which makes it much easier to poke check and keep the offensive player further away. Goalie sticks have a much larger head that makes it easier to assist in blocking shots.
  • More advanced players will want to use a lacrosse head that allows for more intricate adjustments. This will allow the player to adjust the stick to fit a changing playing style. One aspect of the lacrosse stick that can be adjusted from player to player is pocket depth. Deeper pockets allow for better ball control and shallower pockets are best for quicker release. A player’s pocket depth is up to their personal preference.
