This question is impossible to answer because women's lacrosse sticks are measured as an overall length (including the head). According to US Lacrosse and NCAA rules, a woman's lacrosse stick should measure between 35 1/2" to 43 1/4". These are overall lengths and NOT just shaft length.
Lacrosse sticks are measured with basic tape measures. There are three different positions that have acceptable lengths. Attackmen and Midfielders can have a minimum stick length of 40 inches, and a maximum of 42. Defensemen and Long Stick Midfielders may use a complete stick anywhere between 56-72 inches. Goalies' sticks have the same regulations as defensemen.
No the fourth person they are referring to is a LSM or Long Stick Midfield so a long pole that can run on either side of the field
Generally, the best stick length is for the shaft to be the length of your arm; however, just a standard stick length seems to work best for most people. If you cut it to your arm length, it makes it easier to maneuver. But, a really good lacrosse player can maneuver the stick regardless.
Around 60 inches.
