The main reason the sport still maintains right-handed sticks is to do with the rules governing danger. If a ball carrier is met by a defender head on (an ideal situation) if both players have right-handed sticks their bodies should not collide.

The modern game sees this situation less and less, but it is a fundamental aspect that continues to influence even the games tactics. It is unlikely there will be an introduction of left-handed sticks in the foreseeable future, just as it is unlikely that the shooting circle is removed. They are what make the game unique.

Because left hand stick with majority right handers may create danger for players.
