Lacrosse Sticks/Head recommendations for Beginner Youth 

(IMPORTANT) The WARRIOR WARP (brand and model) sticks tend to lend themselves to being some of the more expensive but remain the best choice as they come prestrung and are great for mastering the basics. If you splurge on anything, let this be it. 

The Evo Warp stick comes in a Warp Jr and the Warp Next (intermediate).  These are without question the best introductory sticks and will help teach the proper throwing and shooting form with little to no maintenance required. Some of the cheapest sticks have poor pocket formation and will discourage kids because they cannot catch or throw properly.

You would then have to get a sports store like Dick’s located next to the mall and Shilito park to place a new pocket which can cost 25-30$ extra. You might as well start off right (Especially if you are new to lacrosse)
