there are two types of checking: body check and stick check
with stick checking you can hit your opponent as hard as you like but your hands have to be together on the shaft
with body checking you can ram into anybody as hard as you like but both of your hands have to be on your Lacrosse shaft
Body Check, Stick Check. Playing without a stick is also allowed in Box Lacrosse but not in field lacrosse. Cross checking is legal in Box, but not from behind. Poke checking is illegal.
All forms of checking in lacrosse are illegal, unless you announce to the world that you are a dirty, dirty boy. And than hit them.
Body checks and stick checks
Usually there is a screw and you can screw the head through the hole in the shaft so the head will not come off during the game or when you are poke checking or throwing.
they played lacrosse to work out problems
In lacrosse you where cleats. You can buy lacrosse cleats, but many people, including myself, where soccer cleats because they are lighter and work just as well.
hard work and dedication
it shouldn't be. and no it will not work
women's lacrosse is the truer form of the game. they play with minimal padding (only goggles and a moth guard). there are very specific rules for checking (hitting) the the ball out of another players stick. men's allowed far more contact and checking. they play with padding from the torso up (ribs, shoulders, helmet, mouth guard, elbows). that is because of the difference in checking.
cross checkin, hit from behind, hiting a person with your dtick below there waist or on their head
You can basically get it at any sports store..... but if that doesn't work try comlax.com or lacrosse unlimited.com good luck :)
they are related because there is field lacrosse and field hockey which are both played on fields. The object of the game is the same score the most goals by the end of the game to win. In both sports there is body checking.
