Lacrosse stick info
Lacrosse stick length - Girls that play with too long of a stick will not be able to cradle or throw the ball effectively. Sticks can be cut to any length to fit players at the youth level, but I would also advise against cutting too short as your daughter will continue to grow and you don’t want to purchase new sticks every year. Please see your coach if you aren’t sure what length to cut your stick too and if you need a place to cut, let us know.
Girls lacrosse pocket size varies for age groups:
U9 (1st/2nd grade) - NO limitation on pocket depth, make deep pockets for the girls this age, will help so much in catching and cradling.
U11 (3rd / 4th grade) - Modified pocket, this is still a pretty deep pocket. Just make sure that you cannot see more than half of the ball below the sidewall. Again, the deeper the pocket at this age level, the more success your daughter will have.
U13 (5th / 6th grade) - Regular pocket rule - you must be able to see a portion of the ball above the sidewall - please see this video for help
U15 (7th / 8th grade) - Regular pocket rule - you must be able to see a portion of the ball above the sidewall - please see this video for help
