Quote from Aaron White;
"Growing up as an indigenous player, I've embraced the teachings that our lacrosse sticks are an extension of us with wooden sticks being living beings from living trees and the leather and gutwall coming from the animals. I treat all my sticks with care, whether plastic or traditional. Passing on the importance of stick care to the next generation in Nanaimo is close to my heart.

DM for stringing inquiries, and if you're keen on learning the art of stick care and stringing, don't hesitate to reach out 🪶🥍"
