Lacrosse Stick: we suggest that less experienced players avoid sticks that have narrow (“pinched”) heads as these sticks are designed for extremely advanced players.
Regulation "short sticks" (used by attackmen or mid-fielders) must be between 40 and 42 inches long (measured from the bottom of the shaft to the top of the head).
Regulation "long sticks" (used by defensemen) must be between 52 and 72 inches.
The shaft may be constructed of wood, metal or synthetic material and must have a cap covering the bottom end.
The head may be constructed of wood, metal or synthetic material shaped in a roughly triangular or slightly hour-glass shape, and has a pocket made of gut, rawhide, linen, or synthetic material to hold the ball. The head of the stick must be 6½ to 10 inches wide.
The pocket of the stick shall be deemed illegal if the top surface of a lacrosse ball, when placed in the head of the stick, is below the bottom edge of the side wall.
