Guidelines for Girls Lacrosse sticks
· Grades 3-8 use regulation girls pocket (For Grade 3/4, stick check at Umpire discretion).
· Boys’ lacrosse sticks are not allowed.
· Shooting String rule: There may be no more than two coils or twists of the shooting string “between the thongs” (vertical strings, or leather, or synthetic stringing). The total number of coils or twists of the shooting string between the thongs should be counted. Do not count the twists or coils between the thongs and the sidewall. It does not matter if the cross lacing comes between the coils or twists.
· See US lacrosse Link for description of rule and pictures of both legal and illegal stringing:
