The best beginner lacrosse stick on the market for those smaller players who are just picking up lacrosse for the first time. Stringking is a high end, elite level company that prides itself on products that are used by the best high school ad collegiate players in the nation. These guys really know their pockets so based on the release of their first complete stick last year, they decided to come up with a starter stick designed to specifically enhance the growth and development of youth players.... here's the deal.
Ask any coach worth their weight and they will tell you two critical things about youth lacrosse players and their first sticks. 1) They need a good pocket. This is the most critical piece of the puzzle. Young players are primarily working on basic skills, and without a decent pocket, they are doomed for bad habits right off the bat. 2) The whole stick needs to be as lightweight as possible to make it easy for them to handle.
Stringking nailed em both with this JR which is prices about $20 higher than the big box junk or stuff that they are peddling at the local lacrosse store. So for an extra $20 why wouldn't you get your kids the technology that gives them best chance to learn ??
