Benefits & Rules of 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, which is used by the players 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.
This section will talk about all of the different lacrosse position on the field.
Lacrosse gear is important to your child’s protection and the game. Gear can be very expensive and comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. Helmets are the most expensive piece of equipment out of all the gear because it protects the most important/ vulnerable part of our body. Shoulder pads are fairly cheap and protect our chest and collarbone area. Elbow guards and gloves are also important because that is where defenders are allowed to hit the offensive players. Mouth guards are required for high school and are a cheap way to protect those expensive smiles. A cup is also highly recommended to wear to prevent some horrible injuries. Cleats are functional shoes that provide added traction for quick movements.
