Traveling With Your Lacrosse Stick

When you are traveling by plane, you’re going to want to make sure you know what the rules are about bringing your lacrosse stick along with you.

Bringing Your Lacrosse Stick As Individual Carry-on

As of the time we are writing this article, a fully assembled lacrosse stick is not allowed on a plane as carry-on but this is worth checking on frequently as the TSA has changed this rule before.  The closest you will get to bringing your stick as carry-on is to unscrew the head and put it inside a small bag that is permitted.

Your shaft will have to be checked but could probably go in any decent size suitcase.  Make sure you get an old butt cap to put on the exposed in of the stick to protect it as well as anything that could touch it and become ripped or punctured.

A nice added benefit of doing this would be to use the time on flight to inspect your stick head and make any stringing adjustments and if you are really ambitious and don’t care about ticking off your seat neighbors, how about restringing!

It seems that the TSA is constantly evolving its stance on this issue so it is best to check their website before every flight.

Baggage Check Your Stick

This is the only way you are going to get your lacrosse stick on the plane as a whole stick.  You have to decide the best way to pack your stick so that it is well-protected, easy to find at luggage pickup and doesn’t cost you anything extra to check  in.  A shaft is more easily replaceable so think about unscrewing the head and tossing it in your carry-on for reassembly at your destination.

Traveling as a Team or a Group


This can make things less complicated because sticks can be checked in bulk.  A golf travel case works excellent for carrying multiple sticks.  Try to stick with ones that have a hard shelled exterior.  If you are the equipment manager for a team, it is probably a good idea to invest in a hard shell case.  Make sure to have the team put painters and/or masking tape on the shaft and sharpie their name.  Don’t forget to have the players tape their head screw into the screw slot on the head so you aren’t scrambling for screws when you are reassembling.  You might as well bring a bag full of extra screws just in case.

I think what you composed was very logical. However, what about this?

what if you added a little content? I ain’t saying your information is not solid.,
but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
I mean Traveling With Your Lacrosse Stick –
Read Before You Fly is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s front
page and note how they create article headlines to get people interested.
You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
In my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing which I
believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely large for me.
I am looking ahead on your next post, I will try to get the grasp of it!
