Choosing the correct lacrosse stick..
There are several criteria to consider when choosing a lacrosse stick. The follow will attempt to
First be assurred that while the differences in lacrosse stick head design can make a difference
in play, these differences depend greatly on the level and strength of the player. First some
basic physics. During the throwing or shooting motion, the ball starts to moving up the pocket
and as it continues it begins to meet "resistance" from the pocket and shooting string and
starts to slow down. In addition, as you continue through this , we'll call it shooting motion,
the head of your stick picks up velocity, starting at zero and increasing as you get farther and
farther into your motion. So with this in mind, if you look at a head from the side and look at
the back shape where the pocket is attached you will see that some heads are designed to
hold the ball longer in the pocket, making it release later and, remember your head gains
speed as it continues through the motion, so these heads will give you more velocity.
Conversely, other heads are designed with a shorter pocket thus releasing the ball
more quickly. If you're a crease attackman and shoot relatively close to the goalie then
velocity is not an issue but quickness is where as a middie is looking for velocity and accuracy
so "holding" the ball in his head longer will help.While this applies both to boy's and girl's
sticks, boy's have a little more flexibility in release point than girl's do because pockets rules
are not as restrictive.

The use of Lacrosse Helmets
Lacrosse has become increasing popular these days. From a sport being played only in boarding schools, to a
sport being played in every college and school, Lacrosse has come a long way. Choosing equipment for your
game must be done carefully. Be it helmets, heads or handles; each of these equipment should complement
your style and help in improving your game.
Helmets are the foremost protective gear a lacrosse player needs. Before you buy a helmet, you need to
understand the various parts of the headgear.
Shell covers most part of the helmet and is the integral part of it as well. It protects the player from the blows to
the back of the head.
Visor is the protective area above the eyebrows.While buying a helmet if the visor properly fits your forehead,
then it can help in getting a clear view.
Chin as the name suggests, protects the lower jaw.
Facemask is the most important part of the helmet. It is a grid-like structure with a metal bar running from the
top to bottom in the centre of the helmet. It protects you during falls and accidental hits.
