Stickhead Closing Retail Store

Stickhead Lacrosse & Sports has been the only lacrosse specific retailer in the state of Kentucky for more than fifteen years. They have also been on the forefront of the club scene in the city of Louisville. The retail side of Stickhead will be closing on September, 30th, but the club and leagues they have created are here to stay. 

It is sad to see Stickhead go as there will be no place for lacrosse or field hockey players to get the right equipment. Dick's Sporting Goods has upped their service in lacrosse but there is just something about the "neighborhood" lacrosse store that hits home with many lacrosse players across the country. I remember when I got my first lacrosse stick and gear in the fifth grade. My mom took me into Stickhead and they fitted me for equipment the proper way and then helped me choose a stick that would be suitable for me at that beginner stage. I also remember that we got a discount because I played for a local middle school team. 

That is the kind of service that these store like Stickhead can offer, Personal and Professional. Unfortunately these kinds of places don't always last forever. The Stickhead owners posted a letter on their website on September 14th to let everyone know they were going out of business on the retail side but their clubs and leagues would stay intact.

Here is the letter:

To Our Friends & Customers,

Additionally, we are selling all retail fixtures, tables, audio and video equipment and more. As a bonus for Sept 14th & 15th anyone who comes in and mentions this email will get a bonus 10% off, so that means 40% discount. This is our thank you to you our friends and customers.  

Our programming will continue.....Team Stickhead, Leagues, Clinics, Tournaments will be continuing, so keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates.

Please see our attached letter concerning our store closing. All good things must come to an end, 15+ years was a good long run. Again, we ARE NOT going out of business, just closing the retail store. Mr. Stickhead is alive and well.......see you soon, probably on a field somewhere. Thanks for the years of support. 

All the best,

Shawn & Scott

They also posted another letter on their Facebook page as well.


  1. Its a shame that locals don't support the local retailer.

    1. They did, but money was an issue among other things. It's hard for anyone to compete in this age with the internet taking over.

  2. They really didn't. Love to see a show of hands of teams that used their local lacrosse store as their main source of equipment, jerseys, and gear...
