How much better is lacrosse than soccer?

Lacrosse is way better than soccer. In soccer all you really need is athleticism and your already a pretty good competitor. In lacrosse its totally different. You get the best part of other sports. For boys, you get part of football. Meaning you get to full body check people and stick check. Girls is similar only you don't have body check and a reduced amount of stick checking. Lacrosse also takes a lot longer to fully understand. With the rules and the skills to master to be a serious competitor. Both sports require running but lacrosse is the fastest game on foot. Another reason would be the atmosphere of the games. If you were to sit in at a high school soccer game you would find that there is a significant amount of yelling coming from the parents because they know the game because they grew up with it. If you were to watch a lacrosse game, no one in the stands know the game all that well so its a much better environment. There's also not as much pressure from parents in lacrosse about college scholarships. Overall lacrosse is a much better sport. It's more fun to play and its a friendlier atmosphere. Hey trust me, if I'm a female goalie in lacrosse playing in a boys league, and I have this many good things to say about lacrosse. You should at the very least try lacrosse.

Is girls lacrosse tougher than boys lacrosse?

It depends on what you mean by "tougher." Boys lacrosse is more aggressive and they are allowed to check the body as well as the stick. However, they wear a lot of padding and have a large pocket in the netting of their stick that makes it easier to keep the ball in. Only stick to stick checking is allowed in girls lacrosse, but the only protection they wear is a mouth guard and goggles and they do not have the large pocket advantage that boys do making it more difficult to maintain possession of the ball.
