Stick Purchase Program - If you are new to lacrosse and not sure what stick would be best let us get one for you! Beginner sticks are much harder to play with although, we realize a good stick is a financial investment. Not to mention, hard to figure out what to buy and where to find one. We are purchasing some high quality sticks for the program and will sell them for $185. Should you decide the stick is not for you, we will buy it back at the end of the season you purchased it for $90. We can only buy them back are one season of use. If you would like more information on our stick purchase program please contact email@example.com.
