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.

 

 

 

Fun Lacrosse Facts

Lacrosse was invented by North Native Americans!

Lacrosse traditionally had many different purposes. Conflict resolution and training of young warriors was only one part of the game. Games could be played on a pitch over a mile wide and sometimes lasted for days.

Lacrosse is currently the fastest growing sport in the United States.

However, Lacrosse is growing worldwide with teams throughout North America, Europe, Australia, etc.

The amount of field players has changed throughout history.

The Native version of Lacrosse was often played by large number of players with the numbers capable of rising from anywhere in the region of 100 to 1000 players.

First women's game!

In the year 1890 the first women lacrosse game took place in Scotland. A nun from the convent school St. Leonards read about lacrosse and practiced it as part of their education!
