LENGTH OF LACROSSE STICK

It's come to my attention after the start of tryouts, that player's lacrosse stick lengths are not at the ideal length for the height/size of some players.

Most times, the lengths we're observing are too long for the players. When a player's stick is too long the fundamentals of passing and cradling are affected in a negative way, and bad habits are formed.

The guidelines for a player's stick are below. These measurements are from the top of the head of the stick to the bottom of the butt end. (the entire length of the lacrosse head and shaft together)

Mini Tyke and Tyke = 34" - 36"
Novice and PeeWee = 34" - 38"
Bantam and Midget = minimum length allowed is 40", maximum length is 46"
All these lengths depend on the height of the player.

For reference, most offensive Junior and Senior players (men) use a 40" - 42" stick. Defensive players sometimes use a longer stick for reach. So if your player is peewee and under, and using a 40" stick, it's too long.

Sticks can be easily cut. If you're going to tryouts at 8 rinks, they have a saw in the hockey shop right at the arena. Any hockey shop can cut a stick, or you can do it yourself if you have a hand saw.

Thank you,
Susan Kirkby

Novice Boys League Rule Changes in 2020 Season for all Lower Mainland teams.

Novice A1 and A2 teams changing to checking only of the ball carrier. There will be no off ball checking of players. (eg. clearing the house by way of cross-checking) Off ball will be place and push rules only.

Novice B and C teams changing to NO CHECKING. Place and push rules only.

This has come into affect to promote skill development at the Novice level, as well as the retention of players.

Please be patient with our referees as they learn these new rules!
