Onondaga: The Lacrosse Stick Makers (Video)

An Onondaga father and son make lacrosse sticks in the traditional way. Filmmaker Jack Ofield filmed famed stick maker Alfie Jacques while he was only in his 20’s. It’s a remarkable video that sends us right to that moment in time. Alfie’s father Lou Jacques makes a cameo. Among divulging methods of stick making Alfie also adds integral lessons that cover a life span. “If u can do what you want in life, have a good time… it’s alright”, Alfie proclaims. Reminds us how pure this sport truly is and how special each and everyone of us are to be a part of it.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
