Stick Recommendation

Sioux Falls Lacrosse recommends the String King Complete series of lacrosse sticks for new players. String King sells its complete stick in age-appropriate sizes with a properly-strung pocket, which is essential to learning good technique and lacrosse habits. The String King Complete series offers sticks for both boys and girls lacrosse.


Our Girls Travel Team will be playing with Aberdeen girls to create team.  This is great way to introduce our girls to game play and build more excitement for the girls program. 



Girl's lacrosse is the same sport but an entirely different game from boy's lacrosse. The field dimensions are different, the balls are different, the rules are different, and the equipment is different from the boy's game. The only thing that is the same is the goal.  Below is a description of the equipment needed for girl's lacrosse.


  • Stick

  • Goggles

  • Mouthguard

  • Cleats


Goalies have additional required equipment which can be provided Sioux Falls Lacrosse.
