How to tape a lacrosse stick like a pro
Lacrosse is an all-weather sport, and when it’s raining outside, or even just damp, you’ll find that an unwrapped stick can easily slip in your hands.
Lacrosse grip tape is also useful for beginners to the game, to mark out the correct positions for their hands on the stick, providing a useful reminder while they are still learning the correct form.
And even seasoned players find the ritual of taping a lacrosse stick to be relaxing and even meditative, helping them avoid distractions and focus on the upcoming game.
How to tape a lacrosse stick
There are a few basic rules to follow in lacrosse stick taping, and once you’ve mastered them, you can try out alternative styles, or even invent your own.
- First of all, select your tape. There are many lacrosse stick wraps and grip tapes available, but if you don’t have access to these, any athletic tape will do.
- Next, prepare your lacrosse stick. You need to ensure the tape will stick firmly to the surface of the stick, so wash it down with warm water and dry thoroughly.
- Now, starting from the bottom end of the stick, unroll a few inches of your tape and start to wrap it tightly around the shaft, working upwards.
- Keep turning your stick as you go to ensure you have as tight a fit as possible. You don’t want any air gaps or wrinkles.
- When you’ve finished the shaft, tape over the butt end of your stick. This makes sure that it won’t become loose and fall off during the game.
- If you do find that there are some wrinkles or irregularities, rather than starting again, you could try gently heating the tape with a blow dryer and smoothing it out carefully with your hands.
That’s the basic method, but depending on your personal preference, you may want to try out some different styles to see which works best for you.
Lacrosse tape styles:
As we mentioned above, when you’re first learning to play lacrosse. Tapping is a great way to remind you about correct hand positioning. A typical taping style for this is to wrap a single band of tape around each of the three main positions – the non-dominant hand (holding), dominant hand (shooting) and dominant hand (catching). You can even write the relevant terms on the tape itself as an added reminder.
As the name suggests, this is a very common taping style used by players from beginner to advanced level. Starting from the butt end, you wrap the tape tightly around the shaft, overlapping on each turn by between a quarter and a half of the tape’s width. When you have reached a point about one quarter of the way up the shaft, finish by wrapping a few straight turns.
This is similar in style to the standard quarter, but extending further up the shaft. It, therefore, gives a little more control for different hand positions. As before, start from the bottom of the stick and wrap tightly, overlapping the tape as you go, until you have reached the middle of the shaft. Double or triple wrap on the last turn to complete.
Can you guess where this style of taping got its name? If you like the look of this, you’ll need to start with a few repeats, turns at the bottom of the shaft to give stability, and then turning your stick in your hands, wrap the tape at between a 30 and 45 degrees angle to the shaft. Different angles will give you more or less closely spaced “stripes”. Continue to the middle of the shaft and wrap a few times to complete.
If you’d like to stand out on the lacrosse field, the “criss-cross” might be the one for you, it’s certainly distinctive. This style is pretty much a development of the candy cane, starting in exactly the same way, but once you’ve finished, flip the stick and do another candy cane pattern the opposite way. The trick is keeping your angle consistent to ensure the crosses match up in a straight line.
At the end of the day, there’s no right or wrong style – how you tape your stick is entirely up to you. You may want to adapt one of the styles shown on this page for your own use or come up with something new. Test out your preferred style in your next training game, or on your own using a lacrosse rebounder to make sure your grip and form are correct and your shots are on target.
Lizard Skins Lacrosse Grip Tape Review
This week I’m doing another gear review for all the goalies out there. In this post I’ll review the Lizard Skin Lacrosse Grip Tape for your shaft.
If you’re not familiar with grip tape on a goalie shaft, you should be. I wrote a full post on how and why to put tape on your goalie stick.
Basically it adds additional grip and also serves as a physical reminder of where to setup with your hands in the stance and when throwing outlet passes.
So every goalie should have some kind of tape on their shaft. I don’t want to see any naked goalie shafts out there!
Lizard Skin tape is an alternative to white athletic tape when it comes to taping up our shaft. And for those goalies who are looking for a little more grip, it may be a great alternative.
Good deal on Lizard Skin Grip Tape
Lizard Skin Grip Quality
The first thing to cover here is the quality of the tape. The texture is extremely grippy and does a good job of keeping both the top hand and bottom hand stable, with little to no movement on my hands.
So while the grip of the tape is fantastic, there is one issue. The tape doesn’t stay onto the shaft very well.
When I first rolled on the tape, it took only about two days of playing to start to unpeel and ravel off.
Then, when I played in some heavy rain, a new tape job didn’t hold up really at all to the wet conditions. I was a bit disappointed in its ability to hold to the shaft.
There is a pretty good workaround though which is to use standard athletic tape around the top and bottom ends of the Lizard tape to keep it from unraveling.
The workaround kept the Lizard tape in place for the most part but it seems like this product should just hold to shaft by itself.
I went with a single revolution tape up and probably should have gone for at least at little overlap since it started to show wear kind of quick.
Lizard Skin Grip Performance
In terms of actually performing, the Lizard Skins tape does a pretty good job of actually giving you more control and grip on the shaft.
It fits nicely into gloves and doesn’t really add any weight.
I did like having that extra control, as I felt it helped prevent my stick from rotating on shots that hit the head frame or outer parts of the mesh.
When it comes to transitioning your hands to throw a crisp outlet, the Lizard Skin isn’t too grippy to where you can’t slide your hands down. That’s nice.
For weather performance, the tape actually stays just as grippy in the rain as it does in sunshine. But as the tape starts to peel off the stick water only enhances as the getting the adhesive wet makes it stick less to the shaft.
This tape definitely looks better than normal athletic tape. It comes in a lot of different colors and also comes in 4 different camo colors.
I would have liked to seen a little more endurance out of the Lizard Skin Grip Tape.
Lizard Skin Grip Application
Applying the tape itself is a breeze. It should be applied at a slight angle, and you’ll quickly find a pre-made path you follow to finish off the tape job.
I would say the Lizard Skin is no different from regular athletic tape when it comes to the application.
Most goalies like a double or at least 1. 5 layer of athletic tape. Because the Lizard Skin is thicker you can easily get away with a single rotation as I did.
But you should probably overlap the tape a little. I didn’t because I didn’t want the feel to be too thick but check out the photo below. The strength didn’t hold up and it’s probably going to be time for another tape job pretty soon.
Lizard Skin Grip Price
You can find Lizard Skins Grip tape for around $10-$12 depending on the design of tape you choose.
Find it here on Amazon.
That’s not a bad price considering that a roll of white athletic tape is going to set you back about $3 per roll.
I do wish the Lizard Skin tape came in a longer length. If you like a deep tape job or want to double up in certain areas, you’ll barely have enough length to do so.
It also starts to show wear after awhile and the $10 price per tape job is a lot more than a $3 roll of athletic tape that lasts for a long time.
Granted, it’s a thicker tape so you don’t need to do lots of revolutions like a standard tape job.
If you’re looking for additional grip on your goalie shaft, you should give the Lizard Skin Grip Tape a try.
I think the product has some flaws that are frustrating like the fact that the tape peels off the shaft very easily. But if you’re ok with MacGyvering it with regular athletic tape you should be ok.
I hope Lizard Skins improves that flaw in the next iteration because the grip it provides goalies is very nice and can help eliminate stick rotation when a fast shot tags the side of your goalie head.
Considering the price of a roll is only $10, why not give this grip tape a try?
Until next time! Coach Damon

STX Blog | How to Tape Your Goalie Stick for a Stronger Defense
How do you tape your stick to get it game day ready? Like stringing, everyone’s got their own preference based on their style of play and feel. Some patterns might look random from a distance, but there’s a science to it.
The trick is learning how to tape your stick properly to achieve an enhanced grip for optimum delivery and to control the impact. Team USA goalie Liz Hogan swears by her technique, so we tapped Syracuse’s all-time leader in saves (660) for a few tips.
Check out her taping tutorial, featuring the Eclipse II head and Outlet shaft:
1. Start strong with the new Eclipse II head’s ergonomic throat and the Outlet shaft’s rounded grip for a firm hold.
2. Safety first! Pop the end cap off and tape the butt end of the stick, with half of the tape resting on the metal and half exposed, folding it inwards to create a cushion and avoid hurting yourself and other players.
3. Find your sweet spots — the places along the stick where your grips falls most often — and be sure to tape those up too. Mimic your hand motions while taping to get the right placement. Hint: Sometimes for these spots, it’s best to only use about half the standard width of the tape.
4. Put your shaft to work. Save energy and time by spinning the shaft instead of walking around it in circles with the tape. Bonus: You’ll end up with a straighter line.
5. It’s all about #ThatGrip. Enhance your hold by twisting the tape to create a solid ring around the stick.
Now that you’ve got a grip on your stick, catch Liz’s stringing hacks for ultimate play. Play like Liz with the Syracuse alum’s full set-up: the Eclipse II head, Outlet shaft, and Shield 500 gloves.
There’s a reason Liz is one of our all-time favorites. Not only is she an incredible goalie, but she has an incredible story and she’s always willing to get real about it. Learn more about Liz’s journey in her reflection I Started Out Playing on the Boys’ Team…Here’s what I Learned.
Lizard Skins Review – Lacrosse Playground
Pretty much every lacrosse player tapes up their shaft in some way to add some grip and more tactile feel on their stick. But tape wears out quickly, looks ugly, gets ruined in the rain, can cause your gloves to get worn out and ruined and has to be re-done pretty often. Tape is also not weatherproof and for some players could be a pain to apply, taking a while to get it perfect. Lizard Skins has come up with a new wrap to fix the issues of typical tape and I put to the test.
Lizard Skins are made of a polymer blend and is only 0.5mm thick, which doesn’t add much more bulk or weight to the stick than standard tape will. Aesthetically speaking, the Lizard Skins are available in several different colors including flat colors and various camo colors , so they match with pretty much any color design you want on your stick. For my review, I installed my neon green Lizard Skins wrap on my limited edition neon green STX Alliance shaft, which the color matched well.
Lizard Skins come with instructions which are pretty easy and the installation only took me about 5-10 minutes and came out perfectly on the first try.
- Lizard Skins wrap
- electrical tape
Step 1: Make sure the butt end is on the shaft and the shaft is completely clean and dry. Take off any old tape on the shaft that. I added a bit of electrical tape over the butt end to keep it in place and prevent it from sliding, but this is optional.
Step 2: Take the Lizard Skin out of the packaging, set the small finishing tape segment to the side and take off the plastic covering on it.
Step 3: Start taking off the paper backing and begin wrapping one of the pre-cut ends, tight to the base of the butt end onto the shaft. Keep a bit of tension on it (just like tape) to keep it tight, but don’t pull too tight for it to get wrinkled or ripped.
Step 4: Slowly start wrapping the skin around the shaft, overlapping the last layer you put on a tiny bit (I just covered the Lizard Skins logo on the top part of the skin and that spaced it perfectly. Still, keep the right amount of tension on the skin, and move your way up the shaft.
Step 5: Once you’re getting to the end of the wrap, make the pre-cut end wrap around so the skin makes a clean circle at the top. This doesn’t need to be perfect.
Step 6: Cut a small piece of electrical tape and wrap it around the shaft over the top of the wrap to keep it tight.
Step 7: Wrap the included finishing tape around the electrical tape to clean up the look and finish applying the Lizard Skin.
The Lizard Skin has a soft feel while still being tacky enough to give a nice grip. I’d best compare the feel of this to the grip on a brand new tennis racket, but thinner. The “lizard skin” pattern on it gives you a nice grip which helps your hand stay tight on the shaft, as well as helps keep your hand in place in any weather conditions, unlike tape, which your glove will just slide right across when wet. The feel and grip of the Lizard Skin is very nice both with gloves on or off. Also, unlike tape, it won’t leave residue on your gloves as it gets worn it, making the palms on your gloves last longer. It is also washable so you can keep your stick looking fresh, even when the skin’s been on there for a while.
Your hand won’t really be able to slide on this, so it will give you a tighter grip for better cradling and more accuracy and control when you’re shooting and passing. Since you can’t really slide your hand on it, I’d only really recommend putting these on the butt end of your stick, where your hand shouldn’t be moving. I could also see face off guys putting these at the top of their shafts to give them more grip when clamping the ball, although I personally wouldn’t since I usually stay on the field after my face offs instead of just going off after the draw (Editors note: Anthony is what you call a ball hog).
I really like the Lizard Skins and plan on switching to using one of these on my game stick. At the end of your stick, not only does this give you all the benefits to tape, but it improves on many of the issues that typical tape has as well as having its own benefits. I would recommend Lizard Skins to anyone looking for an upgrade to the standard tape that we’ve been using for years on our lacrosse sticks.

90,000 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis), Actress: photo, biography, filmography, news
First Lady of America from 1961 to 1963, wife of the 35th President of the United States John F. Kennedy , assassinated on November 22, 1963 during his election trip to Dallas.
Being one of the most popular women of her time in America and Europe, a trendsetter of fashion and beauty and a permanent heroine of the gossip, Jacqueline Kennedy made a huge contribution to art, fought for the preservation of historical architecture, made a brilliant career as an editor, working in a number of publishing houses.
The iconic pink Chanel suit worn by Lady Jacqueline became a vibrant visual of the 1960s.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Biography
Jacqueline Bouvier (Jacqueline Bouvier), better known as Jackie (Jackie), was born on July 28, 1929 in the suburb of New York Southampton (USA) in the family of the Frenchman John Bouvier , who worked as a stockbroker and Janet Norton Lee , of Irish descent.In 1933, Jacqueline had a sister, Caroline. In the second marriage, Jackie’s mother, who divorced John Bouvier in 1940 and a couple of years later married a wealthy tycoon, heir to Standard Oil Hugh Ochincloss , had two more children – Janet and James Ochinkloss .
The full name of the former first lady of the United States is Jacqueline Lee “Jackie” Bouvier Kennedy Onassis . Kennedy (Kennedy) – surname for the first marriage, Onassis (Onassis) – for the second.
Jacqueline’s mother was fond of horse riding.An experienced rider was her daughter, who, at the age of 11, won a victory in a junior riding competition and retained a passion for equestrian sport for life. In addition, Jacqueline loved to draw and read, loved the team game of lacrosse.
Since her mother’s second marriage was very successful, Jacqueline from childhood got used to luxury and prosperity, and received an appropriate education. First, at a private school for girls in Connecticut, then for two courses she attended the prestigious New York College Vassar, and in 1949, in order to familiarize herself with European culture and further study the French language, she left for the Paris Sorbonne.
Returning from France to her homeland, she transferred to George Washington University in Columbia, from which she graduated in 1951 with a bachelor’s degree in French literature, and immediately got a job as a correspondent in the daily newspaper The Washington Times-Herald . Among her most intriguing reports were interviews with Richard Nixon , who was then Vice President of the United States, the inauguration of the American leader Dwight D. Eisenhower (he ruled the country from 1953 to 1961), the coronation report of Elizabeth II , etc.
Jacqueline Bouvier subsequently studied US history at Georgetown University in Washington.
During this period Bouvier was engaged for about three months to a young stockbroker John Housted , but this relationship did not lead to the creation of a family.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Family and career of the first lady of the United States
In 1952, at a dinner party in Washington, Jackie met the then Senator from Massachusetts John F. Kennedy , whom she married a year later.Their lavish wedding took place on September 12, 1953 at St Mary’s Church in Newport, Rhode Island.
The first years of Jacqueline’s family life were darkened not only by the loss of a child, but also by the betrayal of her husband, who, according to rumors, had affairs with famous models, actresses, and secretaries. But the most striking and lasting was the connection between Jacqueline’s husband and the legendary Marilyn Monroe (“There are only girls in jazz”, “How to marry a millionaire”, “Gentlemen prefer blondes”). Knowing about John’s intrigues, his wife resignedly endured it, forgiving and never ceasing to love him.
On November 27, 1957, the couple had a daughter Caroline Bouvier Kennedy , and on November 25, 1960 – John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. . In addition to these children, Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy had two more: Arabella Kennedy , born dead on August 23, 1956, and Patrick Bouvier Kennedy , who died of respiratory distress syndrome on August 9, 1963, on the second day after birth.
Shortly before the birth of his son , John F. Kennedy , who nominated his candidacy for the post of head of the United States in January 1960, was elected the 35th President of America. It happened on November 9, 1960.
While expecting a baby, Jacqueline was unable to travel everywhere with her husband, but she took an active part in her husband’s election campaign right at home: she recorded commercials and gave interviews to print media and television, answered letters and ran a column in the newspaper Campaign Wife …
The most ambitious project Jacqueline Kennedy in the post of first lady was the restoration of the White House, which she personally supervised overhauling.It was she who insisted that a bill was introduced to Congress, according to which the “presidential office” received the status of a museum. With Jackie’s participation, many of the residence’s historic rooms not only changed color (the Red room became dark cherry, the Green took on a chartreuse shade, and the Blue Oval Room turned white), but also got the best examples of furniture from the 18-19th centuries. The first lady also held talks with American museums, which eventually presented the White House with one and a half hundred old paintings. Mrs. Kennedy herself chose the fabrics for curtains and draperies, lamps and so on. In a word, everything that could be modernized was restored in the presidential building.
In February 1962, Jacqueline Kennedy hosted a television tour of the renovated White House from the CBS news channel, which was watched by over 56 million American viewers. The first lady herself won an Emmy award.
In the White House, the Kennedy couple received not only world leaders, but also famous writers, musicians, dancers, etc.In addition, Jacqueline Kennedy , as the first lady, has made more international travel than her predecessors. In 1961, Jackie traveled to France, England, Austria, Greece, Colombia and Venezuela. In 1962 she visited India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Italy, Mexico, and in 1963 – Morocco, Turkey, Greece, France, Italy.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The assassination of John F. Kennedy
November 22, 1963 John F. Kennedy , during his election trip to Dallas, was shot in the head while driving with his wife in a motorcade surrounded by guards and a large crowd. Wounded, the president fell on Jacqueline, who was sitting next to him, dressed that fateful day in her favorite pink suit, which later became legendary.
The Kennedys were taken to hospital where John died. Jacqueline, as if in a dream, went with her husband’s body to an autopsy, then brought him to the White House. Over the next few days, she showed incredible fortitude by planning a lavish funeral ceremony for her husband, the president. Jacqueline continued to demonstrate incredible composure, taking care of children and moving from the White House, welcoming the new head of the United States and fulfilling the duty of the first lady to the very end.She fascinated the whole world with her strength of spirit.
Some time after John’s funeral, Jacqueline left the White House and settled with her children in New York. Having put on mourning, she stopped going out. Grieving, coping with the pain of loss and finding meaning in what was happening, she spent a year, while rarely speaking in public, paying more attention to her husband’s legacy, participating in the creation of the John F. Kennedy Library and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, working for the public initiatives and relationships.
On November 29, 1963, Jacqueline Kennedy invited the journalist Theodore White, who always sympathized with her husband, to her family estate in Heinnis Port to talk about the day of the tragedy and her experiences, since she had to speak out. An article with Jackie’s revelations was published in Life magazine on December 6, 1963.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Life after the death of John F. Kennedy
Five years after the death of John F. Kennedy , in October 1968, Jackie remarried.Her choice was the richest Greek ship owner Aristotle Onassis , who managed to ensure his wife and her children safety and protect their privacy. In the new marriage, Jacqueline continued to actively engage in social activities, tirelessly advocated the preservation of Greek historical monuments.
Her second husband died in 1975, and Jacqueline became a widow for the second time. She was 46 years old.
Jacqueline: Aristotle Onassis saved me at a time when my life was full of ghosts.He meant a lot to me. Together with him, I found love and happiness. We have experienced many wonderful moments that I will never forget and for which I will be forever grateful to him.
At the end of mourning, Jacqueline resumed her editorial career in New York. Having always devoted her free time to her children and loved ones, she worked in this position for publishing houses such as Viking Press, Doubleday and did not forget to defend American cultural heritage. So, she managed to save the Grand Central Station in New York, which they intended to destroy in the 1970s.
It is known that after Onassis left for another world, Jacqueline had several hobbies, but her second half, her life partner, became the financier Maurice Templeman , whom she met back in the 1950s, when he worked as a freelance consultant for one of the politicians.
Rosa Schreiber, Maurice’s cousin, said in an interview: Jacqueline married for the first time in order to acquire a high social status. The second time she got married for guaranteed security.Her third bond is based on great friendship and mutual respect. In terms of their depth and essence, these relationships are the cleanest and saneest of all …
In January 1994, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was diagnosed with lymphoma. At the insistence of her daughter, she, being an inveterate smoker, gave up the addiction. In April, Jacqueline’s condition worsened.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died May 19, 1994 in her sleep. She was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, USA.
