Description
Description

Lacrosse is a team sport played with a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick. The objective is to score by shooting the ball into an opponent's goal, using the stick to catch, carry, and pass the ball. It's played typically by two teams of 10 players (men's field lacrosse), 6 players (box lacrosse), or 12 players (women's lacrosse). Skills involved include agility, coordination, speed, and strategic thinking. Points are scored by shooting the ball into the opponent's goal.

The game is fast-paced, combining elements of basketball, soccer, and hockey. Major lacrosse-playing countries include the United States and Canada, with growing popularity in Australia and the United Kingdom. Premier leagues include Major League Lacrosse (MLL) and the National Lacrosse League (NLL) in North America, hosting top-tier professional competitions.

History
History

Lacrosse originated as a tribal game played by Native American communities, particularly in the eastern woodlands and Great Lakes regions. Originally, it involved large numbers of players on expansive fields and had deep spiritual significance. European settlers observed and gradually adopted the game in the 17th century, modifying it to its contemporary form. By the 19th century, lacrosse had been formalized with set rules and organized into clubs. It saw significant growth in Canada, becoming its national sport.

Over the years, the game evolved, splitting into different versions like field lacrosse, box lacrosse, and women's lacrosse, each with distinct rules and playing styles. Today, it's a recognized competitive sport with a global following.

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 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 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).
