History Of Lacrosse: The Indians On Cornwall Island (Ontario, Canada) In The St. Lawrence River Produced 30,000 “HANDMADE” Hickory Lacrosse Sticks In 1965, Accounting For 90% Of World’s Supply (Sports Illustrated, June 21, 1965)


The sport of lacrosse is booming, and the Indians on Cornwall Island in the St. Lawrence River are rejoicing. The Indians on Cornwall provide 90% of the world's lacrosse sticks. In addition to supplying Canada and the U.S., the Cornwall stickmakers are now filling orders from hotbeds of lacrosse such as Australia, Ireland and Hong Kong as well as from new centers like Mexico, Switzerland and Italy.

“…Lacrosse sticks are handmade; no way has been devised to speed up the process of shaping a hickory frame and fastening a net of gut or leather to it…”

The sport of lacrosse is booming, and the Indians on Cornwall Island in the St. Lawrence River are rejoicing. The Indians on Cornwall provide 90% of the world’s lacrosse sticks. In addition to supplying Canada and the U.S., the Cornwall stickmakers are now filling orders from hotbeds of lacrosse such as Australia, Ireland and Hong Kong as well as from new centers like Mexico, Switzerland and Italy.

Until this year 30 Indians working for the Chisholm Lacrosse Manufacturing Company on Cornwall Island could meet the demand. Now 48 are working full time, and they will turn out somewhere around 30,000 sticks before the year is done.

Easton-Bell Sports, a leading manufacturer of sporting goods equipment, acquired privately held lacrosse equipment manufacturer Talon Lacrosse – prompting the development of a new Easton Lacrosse division. Together with Talon, the new lacrosse division will incorporate Easton’s innovative design, materials and technology into the tradition and culture of America’s fastest growing field sport.

Lacrosse sticks are handmade; no way has been devised to speed up the process of shaping a hickory frame and fastening a net of gut or leather to it. The Indians have tried mass-produced aluminum frames, but players would not go for them. When belaboring each other in the heat of play, as they are wont to do, lacrosse players feel there is nothing like a good hickory stick fashioned by Indians as of yore.

NCAA Men’s And Women’s Lacrosse: Goals Scored In Men’s Lacrosse Levels Out At 20 Goals Per Game (GPG) While Women’s Lacrosse Declines To 24 GPG


 

Overall scoring changed little this past spring compared to a year ago across the three NCAA men's divisions. However, a 1.2 goal per game increase in Division I was offset by a similar drop in Division II. In fact, the average – about 20 goals per game – was almost identical in all three divisions for the first time since this analysis has been done. But that level of scoring in Division I lacrosse hasn't been seen since the 2001 season.

After a four-year rise in scoring in the women's lacrosse, the average declined slightly (0.4 goals per game). There was little change in any of the three divisions, and scoring in Division II continued to be the most prolific at 25.4 goals per game. Women's matches continued to result in about 4 goals per game more than in men's matches.

Trends In Lacrosse: Sporting Goods Association Lists Lacrosse As #3 Team Sport For “First-Time Participants” (24.8%) And #1 Most Affluent (48% Have Family Income Over $100K)


Emerging Team Sports.  The three team sports which had the highest percentage of first-time participants in 2009 were rugby (31.6%), field hockey (28.2%), and lacrosse (24.8%).

 Lacrosse is the team sport played by the rich. Nearly half of all people that play lacrosse (48 percent) make $100,000 or more. The richest individual sport is scuba diving, with 50 percent of its participants making $100,000 or more.
