AbstractA method and apparatus is disclosed for providing a replaceable pocket netting for a damaged lacrosse stick. The weaving lacing process of this invention is similar to the traditional pocket methods for maintenance of lacrosse stick. The button system is used on the leather thongs so that the pocket and its integrity can be salvaged from a broken lacrosse stick and used again with little effort. To take out this invention from the head of a lacrosse stick in which the pocket can be removed, it is necessary to untie and remove the side wall strings, untie shooting (throw) string at single hitch knot and at the correction attachment, untie the leather thongs at the bottom of the head. Then the pocket may now be removed from the unwanted head. To re-use the invention, it is necessary to rebutton the leather thongs at the top of the head, then the side wall strings and shooting string are applied. Finally, the leather thongs are retied at the base of the head at a desired pocket depth.
