Free does not mean cheap. We don’t give our free shipping orders 2nd rate service. Like our paid shipping orders and express orders, placed by 3:00pm Eastern Time will ship the same day. Since we warehouse the majority of the items we sell, if the item description page says “Order by 3:00PM EST Monday-Friday for SAME DAY shipping from SportStop.com in NH”, you can count on it getting out the door quickly.

The 2010 NCAA lacrosse specifications are a new set of standards for measuring the dimensions of a lacrosse head used during a game where NCAA men's lacrosse rules are in effect. Specifically, it outlines four points on a lacrosse head that must conform to a set of minimum dimensions found in the 2009-10 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Rules and Interpretations book, appendix iv, p. 108-109:
|Measurement from the throat (inches)||Minimum distance between narrowest point of head|
|1.24" up||3.0" across (all measurements)|
|3.0" up||3.0" across (all measurements)|
|5.0" up||3.5" to 4" across on front; 3.5" across back|
|Widest point||6" to 6.5" across on front; 6" across back|
From the 1.25" measurement to the top of the head, the minimum distance between the sidewalls is 3"
For all youth and the vast majority of high school teams, there is no change. You can double check with your coach to find out if they play under NCAA or NFHS rules. If you are still in doubt, you can always use a universal head that meets BOTH specifications.
For the legal pocket, the top ball must be at least a bit above the bottom edge of the sidewall. Or, put another way, the pocket is illegal if the top surface of the lacrosse ball, when placed in the pocket, is below the bottom edge of the sidewall. Lacrosse heads are one of the most varied pieces of equipment. There are over 100 different models on the market today. The heads are made of a polymer and have many different features. For the beginning player, the most important factor is the mesh. A beginner should have a soft mesh and they should use a low-to-mid priced head. After playing a couple of years, they can move up to more specialized heads and to stiffer hard mesh which will give them more control with passing, catching, and shooting.
Beginner - 1st year or younger player
Intermediate - 2 or more years playing
Advanced - High School or experienced player
Beginner & Intermediate - 1st year player or looking for better than basic
Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced - All levels
Intermediate & Advanced - 2 or more years playing through elite level
