We all know President Obama is a huge basketball fan, but what about lacrosse?

Five-time defending NCAA Women’s DI lacrosse champion Northwestern will be headed to the White House this fall for their annual trip celebrating NCAA champions. So Brine, which is a sponsor of Northwestern, produced a couple of sticks for the first family.

The custom stick for President Obama (pictured below) is a Brine Clutch head, featuring a patriotic red, white, and blue design. The head comes with the president’s name, Barack Obama, printed on the outer edge of one sidewall. Meanwhile, the handle is a custom “Presidential” SwizzBeat, which is anodized black, featuring a red, white, and blue pattern.

Also created was a women’s stick (below), a Brine Amonte head in Northwestern colors, sitting on a Lithium handle. Who knows, maybe one of the first daughters will pick up the sport.

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.
