About Lacrosse



  Lacrosse is a game that looks a lot like field hockey and soccer, played on a large rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object is to score goals by getting a small, hard rubber ball into the goal, and the ball is carried and passed using a stick with a triangular pocket or basket at the end.


Lacrosse players develop speed and stamina. Passing is essential to the sport, so strategy and teamwork are also very important.
