Lacrosse Is The Fastest Game On Two Feet!
Lacrosse, the fastest-growing team sport in the country, combines some of the best aspects of other sports into one sport, allowing players of all sizes and skill sets the ability to contribute.
The fundamental concepts of men’s and women’s lacrosse are the same – players try to score goals by using a stick, which features a plastic or wooden head with netting at the end, to shoot a ball into the goal. The are various rule differences between men’s and women’s lacrosse which makes each game unique.
