• Princess Field Hockey Sticks: What’s All the Hype?

    You requested, we answered! A Chic with Stix, NJ has finally added Princess field hockey sticks to the inventory line-up for 2015. Princess offers a wide array of sticks for the advanced to elite level player and we are so excited to introduce them to you!

    princessPrincess Sportsgear indicates the power of the sticks using “stars.” The higher the number of stars, the higher the percentage of carbon used in the stick. The number of stars (2-7) is indicated on the outside of the stick, which creates more striking power. The sticks are high quality, particularly because they are made of Japanese carbon (Toray). Within a star level, players have several options on the mould, or shape of the stick.

    The different moulds are labeled SG1, SG2, SG5, SG9, and T14. The moulds all have different features to meet the needs of each player. Mould 1-SG1 has a thin grip, bow in the middle of the stick, and above average curve. Mould 2-SG2 offers a thick grip, bend in the middle of the stick, and maximum curve. Mould 3-SG5 has a thin grip, bow falls lower on the stick, and bending close to the head of the stick. Mould 5-T14 has a thick grip, combination of a rounder lower hand profile and uniform rounder rear blade profile for both technical flicking and dribbling. Last, but not least Mould 9-SG9 provides a thick grip and special low curve. This stick is specially created for the short corner, in particular the drag flick.

    Interested? These sticks are waiting for you to try out! Stop by the store TODAY!

  • Lizard Skins: Lacrosse Wrap

    There are grips for tennis racquets, baseball bats, softball bats, field hockey sticks and NOW Lizard Skins presents Lacrosse Wrap! You tend to see girls wrapping their lacrosse handle with cloth tape or duck tape, so it’s about time Lacrosse wrap was added to the mix.

    Lizard Skins: Lacrosse Wrap is a durasoft polymer grip that you can wrap on a lacrosse IMG_1006handle. It’s 0.5mm and designed to improve the performance of any Lacrosse stick. Lizard Skins has an optimized feel and control with slip resistance. The grip is approximately 39 inches long with pre-cut ends and includes finishing tape, both with a full adhesive back. Most importantly, it comes in a lot of cool colors/designs: black camo, phantom camo, blue, red, and green.

    There are easy application directions available in the casing of the wrap. However, if you need some help, we would be happy to grip the handle for you. Don’t hesitate to ask!

    Interested? Contact us through our contact form, stop in the store, or give us a call today to place an order!

  • Four Year Anniversary Sale!

    IMG_1002Four years and still going strong! A Chic with Stix could not have come this far without the support of our loyal customers, staff, and family. We love being able to continue spreading our passion for field hockey and lacrosse to such dedicated female athletes from beginning to end. The last four years have been very exciting and we hope to keep serving the field hockey and lacrosse communities for many more years!

    We can’t believe it has been four years since our Grand Opening! This past year, we IMG_1001sponsored many charity events and added a partnership with Synergy Performance Coaching in Central NJ! To beef up our presence on social media, we started using Pinterest. There are lots of boards to check out for every field hockey and lacrosse fan out there. We have also provided many players with the proper equipment and have serviced/equipped many local teams. Most importantly, we have started progressing toward some pretty big goals of ours that we want to achieve in 2015.

    New this year, our website is being redesigned and we hope to make it more user friendly so you can purchase directly from the website if you don’t live in New Jersey. We will also be adding Princess field hockey sticks and Asics turf shoes to our inventory line-up. Next, we will be upgrading our point of sale to make your experience quicker and more efficient at the check out line. We promise to keep growing and we thank you for being such great customers.

    IMG_0999To celebrate four years we will be having an Anniversary Sale starting the weekend of April 25th and continuing until the end of the month. Everything from field hockey/lacrosse equipment to apparel will be on sale. We will also be giving away coupons for $10.00 OFF, Frequent Buyer Cards, and A Chic with Stix bracelets with every purchase.

    We’d absolutely love for you to come join us at A Chic with Stix in Fair Haven, NJ to celebrate four years! Our store hours are Monday-Friday 3:00PM-6:00PM and Saturday 10:30AM-5:00PM.
