BYLA’s Winter Program is just around the corner – time to make sure that your equipment is in good order. Make sure your stick has no frayed strings or leathers, that all knots are tightly secured, that the screw holding the head to the shaft is secure, and that the ball stop is fully in place at the bottom of the head. Make sure your other equipment fits well and is not damaged in any way. If your mouthguard has seen better days, get a new one and fit it properly. If you have any questions about equipment needs, or if you have questions about stick repairs, please email us at
