We have incredible stringing gurus on the site, Greg Rose and Max McCool, who have given us all tricks and tips of the trade when it comes to stringing a lacrosse stick. But I actually never learned how a stick is strung! So, I turned to my old neighborhood store, Lacrosse Unlimited (at its Norwalk, CT location), and asked Kyle “Fletch” McClure to show me how Lax Unlimited gets their heads strung.
This basic tutorial should make it easier for beginners to stringing to do their own sticks, and if not, you can always go to Fletch and the crew over if you’re in CT (until Fletch gets too Hollywood, so I’d hurry if I were you). Also be sure to check out the antics of the Lax U peeps at LaxUNation.com.
Many thanks to Fletch and crew from the Lacrosse Unlimited in Norwalk, CT. Such a fun gang, if you’re ever up there!

I’m Sammie, and am not A “lax babe”, I’m THE “lax babe”. My first big-girl crush was on a laxer, who let’s just say is still on the field (and in the box) today, and it’s only expanded from there. I live and work around bros, who I love and could hang out with all day every day. One could really even call me a “bro in babe’s clothing”. While lax is (with a bullet) my favorite sport, it’s not the only one I follow, growing up a diehard NY Giants/Yankees fan. If all I had was YouTube clips of MLL skills championships, my aviators, my Ipod, Summer days, pinneys, and laxers, I’d be one happy chick.
