Yes. let him play with a short pole. To young to play with the long pole. He needs to develop footwork and body positioning. he also needs to develop better stick skills. When he can do that the long pole will be far easier to adjust to in another year or two

8 year old should not be using a long pole. Even in travel. No way before 4th grade.

Lax mom , no disrespect but at 8 you should not limit your son to defense just yet. Let him learn the skill first . Cradle , switch hands , dodge , shoot. If you want it in addition to the short stick , I suggest you go to lacrosse unlimited an ask them.

Thank you for the info. Unfortunately his travel coach wants him to start getting use to a long pole for 4th grade. So I have no choice but to purchase one.

Let me add....he is currently on 2 travel teams were he plays defense on one and middie and defense on the other. The coach has asked me to get him a long pole so he can start getting use to catching and throwing with it before he starts 4th grade. As it is now they play up against the 4th graders who have the long poles. Thanks again for any and all input.

I would question any travel coach suggesting that an 8 year old needs to start playing with a long pole. Like one of the earlier posters said - he should be working on stick skills, body positioning, and footwork. Any good coach should know that.

Long pole in 4th grade?

The coach is a fool. Ask him what benefit to learning how to play the position will he have using a long pole? Ridiculous.
