The registration for the BYLA 2016 Fall Ball Program is now open. We are enthused to be offering Fall Ball, which is intended to be a standard program here in Bronxville. The focus of Fall Ball is the development of skills and we hope you all enjoy the benefits of participating with us this season.

BYLA MEETS THE VARSITY

by BYLA posted 09/18/2016
Stick Check!

With Fall Ball sessions fully under way, this is a good time for each BYLA player to make sure that the stick they are using is in good playing condition and properly sized. Players and their parents are encouraged to check the stick to ensure that all strings are firmly tied, that no strings are frayed or broken, that the head is not cracked or loose on the shaft, that the shaft is not bent or damaged, and that the shaft has a firmly attached end cap.

Click here for a video tutorial to help boys and their parents learn about proper stick size and whether or not a stick is legal.

And here are two video tutorials to help girls and their parents:

How to find the correct length for a girl's stick

How to make sure the pocket on a girl's stick is legal

Girls should frequently check the string that connects the pocket to the top of the head.

This string often gets frayed - as in the picture above - by girls picking up ground balls. If this string breaks the stick will be nearly unusable so always make sure the string is in good condition.

Always feel free to ask a coach if you have any questions about sticks or need help fixing them.
