About Quick Stix

 

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.

Know the basics
  • Two teams play against each other.
  • Each teams has 4 players on the field at a time.
  • Each team tries to invade the other team’s space, and score a goal!
  • The unprotected goal is 1.2 metres x 1.2 metres. Or, you can use a ring, hoop or bucket that isn’t bigger than the standard goal size.
  • Kids need to think quickly and move quickly to outwit their opponents.
  • Kids can use slightly different techniques (for different skill levels) to play the game.
  • The idea is to enjoy the tactics as well as the physical play.
Enjoy the best bits!
