Someone at the hockey shop should tell them to try a lefty stick first, so that their dominant hand is on top.
The guy at the hockey shop was great, he handed me a stick and told me to hold it. Didn't tell me what kind of stick it was, didn't ask if I was L or R handed. It felt better to hold it with right on top, so that's what I went with. The other way just felt (and still feels) wrong.

I can see why people would assume that R=R and L=L though.
