Quick Stix is modified lacrosse for primary school kids. It is fast. It’s exciting. And it’s sneaky too! Kids catch and throw a ball with a modified lacrosse stick, and shoot the ball into an unprotected goal.
Let’s get kids into Lacrosse
Quick Stix is a free flowing form of lacrosse for kids to start learning the game. It is simple to teach and learn, and a perfect sport for primary school children.
Quick Stix focuses on the three basic lacrosse skills: scooping, catching and throwing. From this starting point, kids can move onto team play and game rules. In other words, kids learn to love the sport before they take on its technicalities.
Our teaching guide is a big part of the success of Quick Stix in schools. Instructors may use the guide to make sessions easier or harder, to suit what their kids can do. The guide explains different skill levels and tactic variations. And it gives examples of how to keep kids engaged.
Let’s get playing!
