* What is the best stick length for the elementary school lacrosse player?
> Minimum size for a lacrosse stick for high school players and other “big kids” is 40 inches.  These are the so-called short sticks in lacrosse.
> Most short sticks sold are either 40 or 42 inches.  40 to 42 inches is too long a stick for many munchkins.  While these sticks can help the kids pick up ground balls, they are very hard for some kids to protect and control.
> Cutting down a stick to 37 inches will greatly improve many elementary school players’ stick skills.  36 inches works well for the very smallest players.
