What is Lacrosse
The sport of lacrosse is a combination of basketball, soccer, football and hockey. Anyone can play lacrosse--the big or the small. Lacrosse is played with a stick, the crosse, which is used by the player to throw, catch and scoop the ball. An exhilarating sport, lacrosse is fast-paced and full of action; long sprints up and down the field with abrupt starts and stops, precision passes and dodges are routine in lacrosse.
Benifits of Lacrosse
Lacrosse is an active team sport played across a long, rectangular field. The way the game is played provides a substantial aerobic and strength-building workout, as players run up and down the field to get the lacrosse ball into the goal. The intensity of the sport provides a wide range of physical health benefits both internally and externally, and also improves your mental health.
Field Lacrosse, sometimes referred to as the "fastest sport on two feet," is a full contact outdoor men's sport played with ten players on each team. The sport originated among Native Americans, and the modern rules of field lacrosse were initially codified by Canadian William George Beers in 1867. Field lacrosse is one of three major versions of lacrosse played internationally.
