University of Virginia Lacrosse Renews Partnership With Stylin Strings

As you might recall the dyeing/stringing gurus, Stylin’ Strings, partnered with the Virginia Lacrosse team last Spring. What started as trading emails with head coach Dom Starsia and receiving Virginia’s blessing to use the school’s logos (to dye on heads) soon grew into an official partnership. Lacrosse Playground contributor, Peter Carey, stopped by UVA’s campus yesterday to get an exclusive preview of the team’s custom stringing for 2013. Co-Owners Justin Skaggs and Dustin Dohm give us some background on how the partnership came into fruition as well as showing some of the custom pockets UVA players will be playing with in the 2013 season. The pockets are strung by the 2013 NCAA Stringing Rules and are strung on Gait Lacrosse heads, UVA’s equipment sponsor. Heads include, but aren’t limited to the Saber, Flow, Showtime, Vault, Sentinel and Torque 3. Stylin’ Strings will officially release the entire line of custom stringing next week. View images below.

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.
