The doc, well, I’m not really a doctor, i just string lacrosse heads, but i’ve been stringing sticks since the 80′s, so i figure its taken me a long time to learn the craft, much like a doctor, and it seems that I always end up fixxing sticks that others attempt to string…Just about anybody can throw some strings in a head and say they strung a stick, but it takes a lot of years to perfect the science… My lacrosse experience runs deep, i started playing tyke in 1974, and played on the 1979 Nova Scotia pee wee national team that ventured cross Canada, to British Columbia finishing 5th in the “C” division, that’s where I learned how the game was actually played…The big three ( Ont. B.C. and the Iroquois) quickly showed me that there was a higher brand of lacrosse out there nationally than provincially. Lacrosse kind of slept in the 80′s but not for me…you could see me walking the streets dragging my first stick around, and I really should thank a guy named Allen Blake for that one, he was the first guy i ever saw do that… I was first introduced to stringing sticks by my father, ( whom I love dearly, now and always) and a guy named Twiggy from the old neighborhood (Shannon Park). This was back in the day when all sticks were made of wood and in one piece, all sticks had traditional pockets(4 runners, and woven leather through the pocket) This is LONG before plastic heads and one piece mesh came along…I don’t do many traditional pockets any more, and actually prefer the ten diamond mesh pockets that are most common today.
