Lacrosse is a fast-paced sport, equally enjoyed by boys and girls, where players use a net on the head of the lacrosse stick to carry, pass, and catch a rubber ball. Lacrosse teaches kids concentration, coordination and the camaraderie of being part of a team. It is a very athletic and active game, so it offers great aerobic exercise. Since there is so much running in lacrosse, speed and endurance are great assets for a player.
Lacrosse can be played either indoors or outdoors. All players wear protective eye gear, while goalies wear helmets and protective pads. Intercrosse is a mixed gender sport and uses an all-plastic stick, a softer ball, and it is non-contact.
