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 Scooping

Lacrosse Scooping is a way of gaining ball possession when the lacrosse ball drops to the ground. Usually, the athlete bends the knee while facing the ball, aiming low, and moves the stick close to the ball where he or she scoops it quickly and forces it into the pocket of the lacrosse stick and at the same time preventing the ball from rolling back. Once the ball is in the pocket, the player can now cradle, make a pass, or shot to score. When executed correctly, scooping can determine who may win the game. Nonetheless, avoid scooping with one hand or while standing straight.
