FEMALE Goalie Stick Setups for the Top 20 NCAA Teams

Yesterday I posted the goalie stick setup of the top 20 NCAA ranked teams on the men’s side. Now it’s only fair that we do the same post for the women’s game.

Here are top 20 NCAA D1 ranked teams as of March 27, 2017. Like the men’s post the top 20 on the women’s side will surely be different if you’re reading this in the future.

Listed below is the team, the female goalkeeper, and her stick setup.

There you go! The complete list of top 20 female goalies along with their current stick setups.

If you notice any mistakes that I made in putting this together, let me know in the comments down below.

Here’s the final tally:

Heads –

  • STX Eclipse – 12
  • Under Armour Headline – 3
  • Brine Eraser – 2
  • STX Shield – 2
  • Warrior Nemesis 2 – 1

Mesh –

  • 12 Diamond – 15
  • 17 Diamond – 3
  • 20 Diamond – 2

Shafts –

  • Attack Length: 16
  • Mid Length : 4

Similar to the men’s side the most common stick setup appears to be the STX Eclipse head strung up with 12 diamond mesh on an attack sized shaft.

Until next time! Coach Damon

  1. My favorite female goalie right now is Caylee Waters. I got to see UNC win the ACC in Blacksburg VA last year

      1. Yes- we are still pretty new in LAX, and I hadn’t seen anyone with different shaft lengths, so I was wondering about it.

        Now my little one is also wanting to be goalie for her U-11 team, and they are using mini heads [fiddlesticks?], with short shafts, because they are little and can’t manage the full sized heads yet.

  2. Thanks for providing the woman’s goalie stick setups. Are the sticks each goalie uses a direct result of school sponsorship?

      1. If the school is sponsored by STX, then they get any STX heads for free, but if they really like the Eraser, they can still use it, but they have to pay for it.

  3. I know this post is a little old now but Megan Taylor is defiantly my favorite goalie right now. Also, do you have a recommended shaft? I’m looking to buy a new one but I can’t decide. I currently use the ECD Carbon.
