no the pocket is to big
The actual stick of the lacrosse stick is called a 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.

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.
