Lacrosse

Lacrosse is a team game where goals are scored by shooting a ball into a net, using a stick with a pocket on the end, called a crosse.

An Overview of Lacrosse

There are different versions of the game:

  • Men's lacrosse is a contact sport so players wear protective clothing including helmets, gloves and arm padding.
  • Women's lacrosse only involves contact between sticks.
  • Mixed lacrosse is played by both men and women or boys and girls.
  • Pop-lacrosse, is completely non-contact, even between sticks. It is mainly played by six to 12-year olds.
