The game was played in fields, with no boundaries and no padding of any kind. In the game, the only rules were you couldn't use your hands. Women were not allowed to play lacrosse, as the game often got very physical. Goals were spread anywhere from a half a mile, to several miles apart. There could be anywhere from 50 to 1000 people playing at a time.
