lacrosse actually is an olympic sport as of now
Because lacrosse is only played in America, not many countries are able to pay for all the equipment.
It started in 1904 and 1908, they made it a medal sport. It was also in the 1928, 1932, and 1948 Olympic games but has not been competed in the Games since.
If ice skating is than by all means. Lacrosse is just as challenging or more compared to the other sports.

there are criteria for each sport to be an olympic sport....i don't know all of them but one is that it must be played/practised in 4 continents!! that is why lacrosse is not an olympic sport....because it is not played in 4 continents!! Anyway...rowing is an awesome sport, perhaps the best to watch in the olympics...it totally deserves to be an olympic sport!!
Not enough countries play lacrosse nor are there enough governing federations associated with the International Lacrosse Federation for the International Olympic Committee to consider adding lacrosse to its list of sports. The popularity of lacrosse is growing ... at the start of 2010 there were 36 countries that were members of the Internation Lacrosse Federation. 40 countries are needed in an international federation before the International Olympic Committee will consider the sport for the Games. And after getting the 40 countries it is a minimun seven year wait before the sport will be added to the Games by the IOC. The IOC will probably add lacrosse to its list of sports in this decade and, possibly, add lacrosse to the Olympics in the 2020s.
Yes, lacrosse is a team sport.
