New to lacrosse? Your son or daughter wants a BAMShaft and has been bothering you for a while, well here we go:
Women: one length, 33″ for the shaft and then the head on top of that. “The crosse’s overall length shall be between 35 1/2″ minimum and 43 1/4″ maximum”. So, you can cut our shafts down if needed, but it comes in 33″ lengths, then with the head, you get to 43″.
Goalie would usually use a men’s shaft, which is 30″ in length. Some will use the 40″ goalie shaft plus the head, but not usually.
For men/boys lacrosse, you have attack shafts, 30″ long. The complete crosse (head and shaft) can be 40 to 42″ long for the attack position.
For the D player, the long crosse can be 52″ to 72″ in length, again, including the head. Men’s heads are usually 12″, so the 30″ shaft plus the 12″ is 42″. D poles are 60″ long, plus the head, you are at the maximum of 72″.
To complicate it more, U-11, under 11 years of age, for the D pole, it can only be 43″ long, plus the head, makes the crosse a total of 54″. Our D PRO and D PLUS can not be cut down due to the inside design.
