Akwesasne lacrosse stick donation is ‘something that heals’
Mar 03, 2021 — A charitable foundation in Akwesasne is donating 700 lacrosse sticks to help train the next generation of Iroquois athletes and reinforce the importance of lacrosse in Iroquois, or Haudenosaunee, culture.
The Strong Roots Charitable Foundation donated 700 lacrosse sticks to support the Iroquois Nationals Development Program for Haudenosaunee youth. (From left): Iroquois Nationals U21 Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Mark Burnam, Strong Roots Board Member Chessie Thomas, Strong Roots Board Vice President Dianna Tarbell, Treasurer, and Iroquois Nationals Chief of Officials, Compliance and Governance Mark Martin. Photo provided.
The Strong Roots Charitable Foundation is giving the sticks to the youth development arm of the Iroquois Nationals. The Nationals are a First Nations team that plays against the United States, Canada, and other teams in international championships.
Chessie Thomas is on the Strong Roots Foundation’s board and has a son who plays lacrosse in Akwesasne. She told David Sommerstein that an Iroquois Nationals official, Mark Martin, approached the charity about making the donation. Their conversation has been lightly edited for clarity.
CHESSIE THOMAS: He said, ‘we are trying to grow our development program in our clinics, and we definitely want to reach more Haudenosaunee communities and grow our pool of players and our people that enjoy the game of lacrosse throughout Indian Country.’ So we said, ‘okay, I think we can do this. Let’s work together’.
Now, seven hundred is a big number of lacrosse sticks. So I called out to the community, talked to some seasoned stringers. I said, ‘okay, how many can you do in a week?’
DAVID SOMMERSTEIN: So these are hand-strung. You didn’t just buy a bunch of lacrosse sticks from a company. You actually had community members making the lacrosse sticks?
THOMAS: Yes, we had ten lacrosse stringers within the community here who would come and they’d pick up a box, and they’d string them and they’d bring them back. These were seasoned stringers. Some have their own businesses that do them here, and a lot of them were college-aged young adults, who would do it in their spare time for some extra cash. But they all are players. These were all strung by players, community members here in Akwesasne, which I find was absolutely, just the best part of it.
SOMMERSTEIN: The Iroquois Nationals are really unique team. They’re competing on the world stage as their own First Nation, and they’re competing against the United States and Canada that have a huge pool of people to pick from.
THOMAS: Oh, yes. So in order to play for the Iroquois Nationals, you do have to be part of the Haudenosaunee, or Six Nations, Iroquois Confederacy. And so the pool of players, for all of Canada, all of the U.S…. When you get to the Iroquois Nation, your pool of players becomes a lot smaller to go from.

SOMMERSTEIN: Talk about why lacrosse is so essential and so important to Haudenosaunee culture.
THOMAS: Lacrosse is the Creator’s game. Around here, it’s a medicine game. So if you’re feeling stressed or your community is, it’s a calming effect, it’s something that you do to give back to the universe.
Around here, when kids are born, a lot of times they’re handed a lacrosse stick. They learn to hold it, and it becomes a part of them. I, as a parent, my son has slept with his stick in his bed when he was younger. It’s an extension of their body. And it’s something that heals them. It’s something that keeps them focused and helps them stay connected to tradition and culture. Especially right now. I feel our community needs lacrosse right now, more than ever.
SOMMERSTEIN: What do you mean, ‘right now, more than ever’?
THOMAS: I mean, in regards to the COVID stress, with schools on and schools off, families are hurting or losing people. So it’s just one of those things that helps the community come together. And there’s such a sense of pride when you watch them play.
The kids feel that, too. I feel when they’re out there and they’re playing, it’s an extension of themselves. They have to all work together. They have to have a sense of pride when they play.
CoachUp Nation | Choosing Your First Lacrosse Stick + Maintenance
Choosing Your First Lacrosse Stick + Maintenance
Unsurprisingly, gearing up for lacrosse can be an expensive activity, considering that any athlete will need the correct pads, helmets, and cleats before even considering the non-standard stick. So, after all those costs add up, it’s important to make that you’re getting a lacrosse stick that’s a good fit and will help you elevate your game and performance. And, more often than not, many athletes go into their stick-buying completely blind — a decision that may end up hurting them in the long run.
In basic terms, every lacrosse head and shaft is built for a specific type of player and you should consider these four factors before making any purchases:
First off, what position do you play? It may seem silly, but this will directly impact what you buy. Obviously, a goalie needs a specifically wide-shaft and altered stick to play in net. If that’s your position, than phew, that was easy, wasn’t it? However, for the other positions, it’s a little bit more complicated.
Per usual, field players are divided into three lines: defense, midfield, and attack — so it’s crucial to look for a lacrosse head built for your position. Heads for attack-men are designed for accurate, quick passing, and shot power, and thus, theirs will have a tighter throat. Midfielders should find more versatile heads that can be both effective for offensive purposes but also withstand defensive checks. Then, defensemen should buy wide heads as it makes body checking, collecting ground balls, and occupying passes lanes easier as well.
Got it? Great because it only gets trickier from here.
Now that you’ve narrowed the decision down to your position, you need to decide what you want your role on the team to be. Are you a goal scorer? Find a head with shot power. Are you a feeder? Find a head that boosts passing accuracy. It can be hard to recognize your strengths, but it’s an important step to take when finding a lacrosse head. Make sure you take your time to choose the most fluid head. Thanks to the head’s shape, size, build, and pocket, there are many possibilities for you out there, you just have to figure out what type of player you’d like to be!
Believe it or not, this can be a make-or-break factor in your stick creation, but it’s also a detail that many young athletes and parents don’t understand. Furthermore, the stringing of lacrosse heads is just as important as the head itself — so we recommend avoiding pre-strung heads. These heads, generally speaking, are strung in factories and are usually awful. Boasting shallow pockets and lower quality strings, you might find yourself disappointed if you use hem. Most places that carry lacrosse gear will have somebody that will string heads for a reasonable price — it’s worth it.
Some things that a professionally strung stick can do for you: create a deeper pocket for protection, ensure passing accuracy, or allow for quick, tight releases on shots. Once you’ve figured out your role, the strings should be easy.
Then, to wrap it all up, you’ll need to find a shaft that matches the head that you’ve decided to buy. Usually, finding a match means determining the balance that you want for your lacrosse stick. The balance is entirely a preference, but very few players are happy with a stick with a heavy head and a light shaft or vice-versa depending on their role and responsibilities. Lacrosse shafts vary in grip, raw material, and durability. When buying a shaft you should also consider your level of play: a younger athlete doesn’t need the highest quality and expensive shaft as these shafts are meant to withstand college level checks.
Now that you’ve got your stick — the struggle doesn’t end there! In fact, you’re just getting started. Taking care of your stick and giving it maintenance it is key for success. After each winter, many sticks go completely untouched for six or more months! Unfortunately, any proper lacrosse player can’t get away with hiding it away during the off-season and you’ll pay in the long run.
Your stick is an extension of your body and it deserves respect. This means cleaning it after practice, making sure the mesh isn’t warped, and that your string isn’t damaged. It may seem inconvenient, but it will only take a few minutes each day to do and it is so important! for longevity. Don’t be afraid to just dunk it in water and clean with your fingers, your work now will help bring glory and avoid embarrassment in big situations later on.
Lacrosse is the fasting growing sport in the country and more kids start playing every year. Unfortunately, buying equipment for the sport is not cheap, but with those tips, you can build a stick to last. Whether you’re a parent preparing for a first lacrosse season or a senior in high school looking for a new stick, spending your money wisely when buying a lacrosse stick can make a world of difference come game time, especially if you take the time to clean it afterwards!
From Beginner to Pro – When to Upgrade Your Lacrosse Stick
When shopping for a new lacrosse stick the options may seem endless and overwhelming. If you’re shopping for a beginner, the task can seem even more daunting when navigating the varying price ranges. It can also be tough to figure out when it is time to upgrade your gear for the next level. That’s why we’re here to help!
When your young one is just picking up the game of lacrosse it’s imperative to gear them up for a positive experience. On one hand you may be unsure if they will stick with the sport so you lean towards cheaper equipment options. On the other hand, you will want to suit your kid up with the best gear possible which can come with a hefty price tag. The important thing here is to focus on the value and ease of purchase which is why we highly recommend picking up a complete stick. These come ready for action right out of the box. At LACROSSE.COM we’ve done our research and make sure to only stock complete sticks we believe will give your youth player a great experience on field.
When purchasing one of these sticks, keep in mind the size of your young player. If your athlete falls on the shorter side, you will want to cut down the shaft so that it is not taller than them standing up. Being able to comfortably handle the lacrosse stick will help ensure a positive playing experience.
Your young athlete is moving up from the beginner stages and that’s great! They may also now be getting into social media and following pro lacrosse players which will expose them to the latest and greatest gear in the game. Even though they may beg for the newest head and handle, their game may not be ready for it. Most manufacturers make sticks explicitly for intermediate players that offer upgraded technology without a massive price tag. Depending on their level of commitment to the game, sticking with a complete stick may still be the best option so you can get the most bang for your buck. So at this stage it is important to consider their commitment level alongside your budget.
At this stage in the game it will likely be necessary to use full length shafts even up to the 60” length for defensemen. With the 60” handles, if you son still lands on the shorter side it would be beneficial to cut down the shaft while staying within the legal length of their league.
They have made the move from playing lacrosse just for fun to committing to the sport. They have taken the steps to put in more time and effort into perfecting their game. So, now is the time to really upgrade their gear so they can truly excel on the field. At this level, buying separate components in the head and handle will be the route to go. You may even need to pick up stringing materials so that your athlete can craft a pocket that fits their game. Now when it comes down to buying a new stick for your advanced athlete you have to keep in mind more than just your budget. This time around you will want to consider the position they play (Attack, Midfield, Defense, Goalie) and their style of play (Speedy, Big-Hitter, Outside Shooter, Primary Ball-Carrier,etc.) as most manufacturers have designed products tailored for specific types of players.
We hope this Beginners to Advanced Lacrosse Stick buyers guide has helped you navigate the lacrosse equipment market as you look to upgrade your athletes gear.

Main Features of Stick for Each Position in Lacrosse
Every field position has its own duties; so, the stick features are different for each position.
Defense lacrosse stick
Defense sticks are also called d-poles and they have a longer length as compared to others to help in offensive playing. They are great equalizers. The longer shaft allows reaching the far away ball and gives the ability to throw it farther. On the other hand, added inches means more weight to the shaft that makes the control harder as more force is needed to handle the stick. However, the stick should not be taller than the player.
The stick is long but the head is interchangeable with attacker stick. However, the defense players give preference to the durable and strong head to throw hard. Flat scoops are also liked because they make it easy to play the ground balls along with wider pockets as they offer extra blocking area.
Middie / Attack lacrosse sticks
The middie/ attack lacrosse sticks are shorter to allow the player to have full control over the stick in the field. The short length makes it easy to pick the groundballs. It also improves ball security. Middie and attack sticks have the same properties. Both of them use the same stick, known as a shortie. It is short to provide the optimal control but long enough to have the power to shoot better.
The shaft is basically lighter as well that allows the players to show agility while moving. The attacking lacrosse shafts mostly have the length of 30”. Usually, defense and the attack heads could be changed, but attackers find it convenient to have the head that has lighter weight along with the maximum scoop. Further, they want to have the maximum offset with narrow pockets to enhance shot accuracy and ball retention.
Goalie lacrosse stick
A goalie stick is unique in many ways because of the work it needs to perform. It has the properties of the defense stick as well as the middie stick. It also has the extra length because it requires clearing the ball further than the normal player. But again, the extra length means the stick will be heavier. It is totally the choice of the goalie. Many goalies go for the short shafts as it helps them to respond quickly because they are lighter in weight.
The goalie stick heads are nothing like defense and attack heads when it comes to the shape and size. They have the larger circumference and can be over 12” wide. The shape is designed to have better ball retention and shot blocks.
Lacrosse Stick Length Rules
The length of the lacrosse stick should abide by the game rules. Here are the lacrosse stick length rules that depend on the playing positions.
Defense Stick Length
Defensemen are allowed to have the total stick length between 52” to 72” and the shaft length 42” to 60”. The length of the pole should match the player’s height. For instance, if the player is 5 feet 8 inches, then the shaft length should be 58 inches and the head should measure 10 inches that makes the total of 68”.
For the youth player, the same rules are applied but the stick length varies; the allowed combined length is between 37” to 72” and the shaft length is 26” to 60”.
For the adult midfielders, the shaft length of 30” is allowed with the head length of 10”-12”; that makes the total stick length of 40”-42”. On the other hand, for the youth players, the shaft could be cut short to 26” minimum. The allowed combined length varies from 36” to 42”.
Goalie Stick Length
When the head isn’t involved, the perfect considered shaft length is 40 inches and the combined stick length ranges between 40” and 72”. For the youth, the stick length can vary between 37” to 72”.
Things to Look When Choosing Lacrosse Sticks
Choosing the right stick can totally alter the end results of your game. The right selection can create a win-win situation when it comes to the hands of an elite player. The wrong choice, especially for the first time, can totally alter the game perception of the new player. There are many things to consider when choosing a lacrosse stick.
How to Select the Right Shaft?
The shaft may simply look like a stick to hold the head but it has a great diversity as well when it comes to selecting the right one. The shaft provides power, control, and accuracy.
When the shaft is heavier, it will become bulky and slow the player down. On the other hand, lighter shaft improves agility and reaction time. The expensive shafts are usually stronger but very light in weight.
The weight depends on the length of the shaft and the material used in the construction. Carbon components and metal alloys are used usually because they are strong yet light weighted and don’t hinder the performance.
The most common shafts are made using any of the following materials:
- Aluminum Alloy: Aluminum-based alloys are strong and don’t have much weight. They are affordable and versatile. As they don’t have a natural grip, sticks made from aluminum have added grip pattern to enhance control. Considered ideal for young players, the strength is not as good as other advanced materials.
- Composite: The whole carbon construction gives great strength with lighter weight. This material offers a solid natural grip for enhances control. When the temperature is high, it feels cool, and when it is low, it feels hot; this makes it an efficient material to select. Attackers mainly prefer composite sticks and it is usually the choice of intermediate and above players.
- Titanium: A sturdy, tough, yet very lightweight material to construct a shaft. The strength is flawless and can be used to enjoy some great hits. Advanced players go for it as they are a bit expensive but the construction is flawless.
- Scandium: Another famous but very light-weighted material that has the unmatchable strength and durability is scandium. It is the one-time investment in the game as it lasts really long. The ideal weight makes the movements very easy. Because of the high-quality manufacturing, it is the love of many pro-level and elite players.
No matter which material you select, it is always the personal choice of the player. The construction of one shaft is different from others and has a built-in grip and texture. The topmost thing to consider is to go for the shaft that feels great in your hands.
How to Select the Right Head?
The shaft’s construction will produce no results if the head is not right. There is a great variation in the lacrosse head. Heads are available in diverse designs, shapes, and sizes but the functions remain the same. The head should meet all the demands of the game and provide enhanced ball handling, accuracy, and shot speed.
Selecting the right head is essential for the game. The player must select the head according to the playing position. Even for the same playing position, features of the head can vary greatly as it depends on the player’s personal choice as well. Knowing the functioning of different parts of the head helps in making the right selection.
It is the topmost part of the head that touches the ball and pulls it off the ground. It is also the place where the ball is passed or thrown. The dip in the center of the scoop is known as ‘drop’. The measurement of the scoop is done in drop and width. Scoop with maximum drop offers ideal accuracy; on the other hand, the flat scoop is good to pick the ball off the ground.
The sidewalls of the head can be hard or flexible but their aim is to provide strength to the head. It shapes the head and holds the pocket. Stiff heads are the choice of the defensive players because they deliver the ball hard – they are heavier in weight as well. On the contrary, flexible sidewalls don’t weigh much and offer fast movement. They are also great at picking up the ground balls. Their height impacts the pass accuracy and shots greatly; they can be mid, low, and high and determine the depth of the pocket.
It is the place of the head that keeps the ball. The pocket comes in two ways; either it is strung by the company and called complete or it is unstrung. Mainly, the veteran players want to go for the later one as they want to customize it using their experience. On the contrary, the company completed heads are recommended for the players who don’t know the game very well or considered intermediate players.
Narrow pockets are great when accuracy is needed along with the best ball retention as they make blocking harder but throwing and passing become hassle-free. Wide pockets are the choice of defensive players and newbies as they are not too accurate and make it harder to hold the ball. Also, the wider area allows blocking passes and shots very quickly.
As compared with the midline of the handle, the offset is the lowered sidewall that keeps the scoop behind the handle line. Offset function is to enhance ball retention and cradling.
Complete Stick or Customized Stick – Which One Is Better?
Both work great but the selection is mainly the matter of the personal choice and the level of the player. The head is detachable and can be customized with any shaft. You can either buy the shaft and head separately and then join them to play, or you can go for the complete stick that is assembled by the company.
The new players go for complete sticks because they are pocket friendly and offer great value and performance. There is no trouble to separately look for each item. However, on the other side, the elite and advanced players like to customize their stick and buy shaft and head separately. It costs a bit extra but their experience helps them to experiment correctly. They know what is best for their game, thus, they can make the right choice. For the new players, only the complete stick is recommended.

Times Union boys’ lacrosse Athlete of the Year
The National Lacrosse Federation ranks Behrman as the No. 12 player nationally in the Class of 2022. The junior attack, an oral commit to the University of Notre Dame, displayed his lofty status among the top players in the country was justified as he delivered 56 goals and 50 assists in his second varsity campaign for the Silver Warriors.
A key competent to Niskayuna winning a Section II Class A title during his freshman season, Behrman’s 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. His exploits during his second varsity season proved even more impressive because he competed while playing with an injury.
“It was a two-year jump, not freshman to sophomore but freshman to junior,” Niskayuna coach Mike Vorgang said. “He grew in size and was much stronger than he was his freshman year. He has always had the confidence and the skill set. That was never questioned. This year, he was so much stronger and played with an injury. He just had shoulder surgery (June 24) on a torn labrum. He played the whole season with that, so he is a pretty tough kid. The thing that never seems to change with him is his competitiveness.”
Behrman, selected as Niskayuna’s Most Valuable Player, and sophomore attack Greyson Vorgang proved to be the area’s most prolific scoring tandem. The two always practice together during the offseason and their tight bond and chemistry manifested itself during games as each standout produced big numbers.
“(Greyson) is the most efficient player I have ever coached with regards to the number of shots he takes and the shots that go in or off the post,” Mike Vorgang said. “When you take that and couple it with Brock’s dynamic abilities as a playmaker, you have a special combination. “
Behrman’s speed, remarkable change-of-direction abilities and crafty stick work set him apart. The junior adding 15 to 20 pounds of muscle since 2019 further aided his development. The season, however, did not end the way Behrman and the Silver Warriors wanted. Shaker stunned Niskayuna 9-7 in the sectional semifinals, denying the program an 18th straight trip to a Section II final.
“I think we have a lot to build on and I am hoping what happened to us lights the fire under each guy on the team,” Mike Vorgang said. “I know Greyson and Brock are not going to stop working. They get up at 5:30 in the morning and go shoot together. They are best friends and are always trying to get better, so I can only imagine what they are going to do next year.”
“We took that loss really hard,” Behrman said. “We wanted to send the seniors out the right way. It was really heartbreaking not to see them go out with a win, so I think our goal is to do everything we can now so that when we hit (the field for the 2022 season) there is no doubt we will be sectional champions. “
HC Avangard | News | S. Shumakov: every hockey player can easily score a lacrosse goal
Avangard forward answers the questions sent by the fans Sergey Shumakov . He told about everything that was asked, and also chose the best question. The interview was conducted by Pavel Lysenkov.
– Which country is more successful in hockey – Great Britain, the USA or Russia?
– It seems to me that the question was asked with humor, and if you answer in the same vein, I will say “Great Britain”, because the idol of Omsk fans, Nikolai Lemtyugov, played there.But I really don’t know much about British hockey. I like watching British football more, sometimes including top matches. Although there are no particularly favorite teams. But seriously, Russia is, of course, the most successful in hockey. And I am a patriot, and I will always support our country.
– Let’s imagine that the Russian national football team urgently needs athletes, and we need to take three from Avangard in order to apply for a match, for example, with San Marino – who to take?
– Let’s take it like this – Denis Zernov, Kirill Semyonov, well, me. All three of us will rush to the attack! Let Sam come out in the center, Zenya – on the right, I – on the left. And let’s go ahead!
– It so happens that your opponent plays roughly, and you don’t answer him because you’re scared?
– I try not to answer in such situations. But not out of fear, but because it’s better this way. Let him grab the removal, and we will realize the majority. This will help the team win. Remember how last year we played in the playoffs with Ufa. Then their defender Alexei Semenov climbed on our Nikita Pivtsakin.He did not answer, and Semyonov received two minutes, but Pivtsakin did not. And we played in the majority, and we took that series from Salavat Yulaev.
– How long did it take you to complete the Granlund feint, the so-called lacrosse goal? And how many goals have you scored this way?
– When I started playing hockey at school, there was a fashion for such goals. I tried, learned this trick. I tried to score like that in training. So far I have scored three goals in lacrosse in official matches.One – when he played for CSKA, and two more – for Avangard. I will say that every hockey player can safely do this trick. It just takes a little time and confidence.
– What is the happiest arena for you? And where do you like to play away?
– I like to play in Kazan, and also in Magnitogorsk and Ufa. I cannot describe exactly what is special there. But the atmosphere at hockey in these cities suits me very much.
– Pavel Datsyuk said that he would like to end his career in Yekaterinburg – and now plays for Avtomobilist.In which city would you like to end your career, even if it will not be at all soon?
– Most likely in Siberia. I would like to play again in Novosibirsk.
– Do you believe in omens, and what traditions do you observe before the match?
– Of course, I have signs. But the main thing here is that you cannot talk about signs. In general, for hockey players, the most typical thing is with which foot do you start lacing the skate, with which foot you step on the ice, how you swing the club.
– What language do you speak with Bob Hartley? And who speaks better: you speak English or he speaks Russian?
We probably speak equally badly in foreign languages. But hockey terms are universal and I understand Bob easily. And if you need to talk more deeply about something, then we have an interpreter at the club.
– At one time your teammate was Alexander Ovechkin himself. What is he like in life – a simple guy or an arrogant star?
– Ovechkin is an absolutely normal person.Easy to communicate. We also went to his birthday. A very cool guy, he has many friends in America. We can say that Ovechkin in Washington is like a dad. Everyone there knows and loves him.
– You have had a coronavirus. Share your experience – maybe, thanks to your advice, someone will be able to avoid infection.
– No one is immune from this disease. You can just be on the street and catch this virus. On the first day I had a fever, my throat sore.I passed the test, it showed a coronavirus, and I was quarantined for two weeks. For the other 13 days that I spent at home, nothing hurt me. I was not treated with anything special. You just sit at home, and the main thing here is not to infect anyone. Now we take a PCR test every four or five days. So far so good and no cause for alarm.
– What’s your favorite YouTube channel?
– Program “What happened next?” There are many cool episodes out there. For example, it was funny with Mikhail Shufutinsky, the series turned out to be funny when Dmitry Guberniev came.
– Which TV series from the last you saw hooked you?
– The best thing I watched was The Paper House. This is the name of the Spanish crime drama series. I also love the American TV series Escape.
– Probably, you also like the series “Fizruk”? Otherwise, why did you buy yourself a Gelendvagen, which was driven by Dmitry Nagiyev’s hero?
– Well, I bought the car much later than the Fizruk TV series came out. It has not been shown for a long time.But if you think that I am leaving the “Gelik” to the sounds of “Gorky Park” – “Moscow Calling”, then so be it.
– How do you see your ideal weekend?
– This is the day I spend with my parents. I don’t see them often. It would be nice to go home. Maybe somewhere to give up on nature. It depends on what time of year. If the days are warm, then why not go to the lake or the forest.
– It used to be that Avangard’s most fundamental rival was Dynamo Moscow.And now?
– I think that the most important hacks we now have are with Salavat Yulaev and Barys, rivals in the division. And we have often met in the playoffs lately. Why not Ak Bars? So Kazan has its own green derby with Ufa.
– What is the most interesting penalty in the Avangard locker room? So, in “Vityaz” at one time they took $ 500 if you use a mobile phone in the players’ room.
– This is ours too. There are a lot of these fines.For example, for a broken stick on the side, for unnecessary removal. This is exactly what I paid for the club when I smashed it against the side. I had to pay the cost of the club, plus a certain amount. The desire to break the clubs was completely gone.
– Tell the story of your tattoos. How do you come to the idea that you need to fill it?
– Yes, I was just sitting at home, and suddenly I saw a tattoo in the form of open wings on one person. I think it’s cool. I always wanted this, but my hands did not reach. Then time came: why not? I went and did it.I assumed that this year I will do something. But since the tattoo parlors are closed, he postponed the idea until better times.
At the end of the interview, Sergei Shumakov named the most interesting question from the fan, which hooked him the most. The winner was Dmitry Prilipko, who asked: “What is the happiest arena for you? And where do you like to play away? ”

How to choose a hockey stick
Hello again everyone! In the last article, we figured out what parameters are available for hockey sticks, and now we will consider how to choose a stick for yourself .
First, you need to understand which side you are playing on. Left or right. There is a very simple way to check. Whichever hand you have upper when you vacuum, mop the floors or dig a hole with a shovel (which is preferable to whom) – that hand will be the upper one on the stick.
So let’s define what exactly you need?
First, let’s figure out the growth of the club. This point is the most important of all of the above. Sticks are: YTH – 45 inches (115 cm), JUNIOR – 50, 52 and 54 inches (127, 132 and 137 cm), INT – 57 inches (144 cm), SR – 60 and 64 inches (152 and 162 cm). The club is measured from the heel of the feather (base of the stick) to the top end. To understand how long you need, you need to: bring your feet together and stand up straight and put the club in front of you on the tip of the feather.The stick should be strictly upright.
Depending on the length of the club, the fit and manner of play change. There is one regularity: the lower the stick, the better the technique. But then the area of your influence on the field suffers first of all. How far from your current body position you can interact with the puck in the 360 areola. Secondly, the effective throwing range is reduced. That is, the further you are from the goal, the less accurate and weak the shot will be.
Conversely, if the stick is long, it will be easier for you to knock it out of your opponents, give passes, and click more conveniently.It is also possible to give long passes very accurately and strongly. In this case, it is better not to resort to beats, fast dribbling and feints. As a rule, such clubs, regardless of the pen, are chosen by those who know what the defenders want. They clearly limit their responsibilities, but perform them perfectly.
I recommend that you always cut your club based on your current height. For beginners, I recommend sawing the club along the bridge of the nose. So they will not have to bend too much when the club is in two hands, respectively, the riding technique is mastered without flaws. In children, it is not necessary to saw off too much with a margin (often the clubs are sawed off for growth), a maximum of 2 centimeters, otherwise this may negatively affect the teaching of the technique. It’s easier with adults. Growth is already stable and you can gradually pick up the club using different options. The best option is if a knowledgeable trainer tells you, taking into account your data and riding technique, coupled with the technique of hand control and their movement. It is widely believed that the club should be sawed off under the tip of the nose. My opinion is that it is necessary to saw off, especially for beginners, up to the chin.In this form, the club, when moving, does not hinder the movement of the hands, and the technique will “lie down” more correctly.
It was not in vain that I paid such attention to the length of the club, as I believe that this is the most important thing for a hockey player. For a professional, even millimeters matter. A small deviation and you will no longer get exactly the same throw that has been practiced for a long time. I have personally played for many years so long that the tip is exactly at the level of the upper lip line (yes, so picky), or 58.7 inches. But I recommend starting with a little longer than necessary, because you always have time to saw off, the main thing is not to be afraid to experiment.
In the next article we will look at what feathers are. That is, their forms are options for bends, and at the same time we will understand their numerical designations.

RULE 75 – High Stick Play
1. If a hockey player touches the puck with a high stick above shoulder level and either he or his teammate is next to gain control of the puck, or the puck goes out of bounds, the referee must stop the match.
2. If the offense is committed in the attacking zone, causing the offending teammate to gain possession of the puck in the attacking zone, then the next face-off will take place behind the blue line on the side closest to where the offending teammate took possession of the puck.
3. If this violation is recorded in the attacking zone, as a result of which the offending teammate takes possession of the puck in the neutral zone or in the defending zone, then the next throw-in is taken at the point closest to the place where the offending team got possession of the puck, which does not give this team a territorial advantage.
4. If this violation is called in the neutral zone, the next throw-in will take place in the defending zone on the side closest to where the offending teammate took possession of the puck.
5. If this violation is committed in the defending zone, the next throw-in will take place in the defending zone on the side closest to where the offending teammate took possession of the puck.
6. High stick play during a match is determined by the position of the hockey player’s shoulders (while the allowed height for the puck to ricochet into the goal is determined by the height of the crossbar).
7. If a hockey player touches the puck with a stick raised above shoulder level, and the opposing player takes possession of the puck, the match continues.
