In Lacrosse, you have 3 defense, 3 attack, and like 4 midfielders. 1 person from each team starts off in the middle and does the draw. Then the midfielders try to get the ball and make it down the field toward their attack players. Where team A's attack players are standing, team B's defensemen are standing trying to prevent the ball from going into the goal, while the attack are trying to do just the opposite. The team with the most goals at the end, win. It helps to cradle the ball when running down the field. You do that by holding the stick with your dominant hand on top and you turn your wrist back and forth and run. Try to avoid defensemen and keep the ball and stick as close to your body as possible. Good luck! Lacrosse is my favorite and I'm sure you will love it too!
Lacrosse has two differing styles of play; box lacrosse, played in an arena similar to a hockey rink, and field lacrosse, which is played in an open and unrestricted field.
Many sports have aspects of them that are similar to lacrosse, although they are all quite different - except for pop lacrosse, which is often played in schools as it's easier and safer (plastic sticks, ball is like a whiffle ball) or lakross in the Czech Republic, which is played with small metal sticks about 40 inches long. Other than that, I live in Germany and describe it as field hockey in the air.
The sport of Hurling http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurling is popular in Ireland and has clear similarities with lacrosse.
Its a total opinion but my opinion of it is strong. THE most exiting sport on earth. If you don't like contact sports DONT do lacrosse. Definiatly not only a contact sport but a fast pace incredibly fun sport putting your reflexes to the test. I strongly recommend lacrosse to anyone who has a passion for sports like I do.
yes although in germany many people think it is a religios quality
