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 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.

Lacrosse Throwing

Lacrosse Throwing or Lacrosse shot is a way of passing a lacrosse ball to a teammate quickly or shooting the ball to score. In a lacrosse throw, your leading hand will do most of the work. To do a lacrosse throw: hold the tail of the stick with your non-dominant hand and your feet and chest to the side and positioned towards your teammate; step forward while maintaining the stick at a parallel position to the ground; and force your hand carrying the lacrosse stick to thrust it forward creating the throwing motion forcing the lacrosse ball to travel towards your target. Follow through with the head of the lacrosse stick pointing toward your target.

Lacrosse Cradling

Lacrosse Cradling refers to maintaining ball possession in a lacrosse game while moving with the lacrosse stick without the ball falling. The players are protecting and handling the ball while moving around the field. To effectively master this skill, you must grasp how to duck, check, escape hitting, shooting, and passing. You must hold the lacrosse stick with both hands, with the dominant hand holding the stick near its head and the other almost at the bottom. While performing a cradle, the stick needs to be in a parallel position to the body.
