Lacrosse is a team sport where players use a stick with a net to catch, scoop, and throw a ball into the opposing teams net. Considered to be the first sport in America, Lacrosse was originally invented by North American Native tribes, played by the French, and then widely adopted by the Canadians. Played on a field roughly the same size as a soccer field, two opposing teams fight for a solid rubber ball and attempt to shoot it into the opposing teams net to score. Often considered a violent game, lacrosse is a common high school and college sport.

How do you play lacrosse?

Much like soccer, lacrosse is played on a similar field with 20 players on the field. You have three attackmen, three midfielders, three defenders and a goalie. The goal is to get the lacrosse ball with your lacrosse stick and score it into the opposing net to score points.

How long is a lacrosse game?

There are four 15-minute quarters that equal out to 60 minutes of playing time. Halftime usually lasts 15 minutes in a regular-season game, but in title games, halftime is 30 minutes. Time is also affected if there are penalties/fouls or if the game goes into overtime.


Who invented lacrosse?

Lacrosse was invented by the North American Native Tribes and is the first national sport played in the United States. Lacrosse is also known as “the creators game or the medicine game” and is sought out to be a form of medicine for Native Americans when they were sick.

Lacrosse Stick
Size comparison diagram of the Lacrosse Stick compared to other similar sports equipment

A Lacrosse Stick is also called a crosse and is used in lacrosse sports for handling the ball and making a shot to score. It is also for passing the lacrosse ball or causing the opposing players to drop the ball. It is made from hickory trees and carries a unique shape composed of a head, roughly triangular woven in loose netting (also called pocket) to catch, pass, or shoot the ball. The shaft, which is the handle, can be of hollow metal. Women's and men's lacrosse sticks are similar but differ in pocket depth, which is much shallower in the former.

Lacrosse Sticks have a length of 40”-42” (101.6-106.7 cm) for offensive players, a length of 52”-72” (132.1-182.9 cm) for defensive players, widths between 6.5”-10” (16.5-25.4 cm), and pocket depths from 2”-2.5” (50.8-63.5 mm). The weight of a Lacrosse Stick is 5-12 oz (142-340 g).

Lacrosse Goal
Front elevation illustrations of Lacrosse Goal with a goalie

A Lacrosse Goal is primary piece of field equipment in the Lacrosse sports composed of a steel frame woven in loose netting protruding backward. The lacrosse goal is very portable and collapsible and forms a square shape when placed on the ground. The goalie stands guard in the front of a lacrosse goal to prevent an opponent from scoring with a shot while the opponent aims to get the ball in the lacrosse goal or net to score and receive points. Thus size, net usable, portability, and collapsibility are essential when buying a lacrosse goal.

Lacrosse Goals have a regulated inside width of 6’ (182.9 cm), inner height of 6’ (182.9 cm), and depth of 7’ (213.4 cm). The weight of a Lacrosse Goal is typically between 35-115 lb (15.9-52.2 kg).

Lacrosse Catching

Lacrosse Catching is a means of stopping a pass from going through by catching the lacrosse ball using the lacrosse stick or preventing the lacrosse ball from entering into the lacrosse goal. The objective is to take the ball and retake ball or game possession. We can divide a lacrosse catch into Cross Handed or Cross Body Catching. To perform a lacrosse catch, you must move the stick from one side of the body to the next without switching hands. A lacrosse catch is also for receiving a pass from a colleague. This technique demands proper body positioning and adequate stick grip so you can maintain ball possession.
