Is girls lacrosse tougher than boys lacrosse?

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.

What are lacrosse pocket regulations?

For guys lacrosse, the ball cannot be below the sidewall at the very bottom. If it is, its illegal. So the head itself has a sidewall, and the lowest point on it is where the ball cannot below (depth-wise). Also, is you hold your stick straight up with a ball in it, and keep tilting is so the pocket would be upside down and the ball doesn't come out when its upside down, it's illegal. And if you put a ball in your pocket and tilt it so the scoop is parallel with the ground (about a 90 degree angle if touching the ground) and the ball doesn't come out then it's illegal. Also, you cannot have any rips in the mesh.

How do you cradle a lacrosse ball?

Hey! Haha well i am a lacrosse player, so i should know. You hold the stick straight, and use your wrists like hinges to twist the stick. This motion is not only for wrists, but arms as well. They should be moving back and forth in the same motion as the wrists. Everyone cradles differently though, some people cradle the stick back and forth acrosse their body, other like to keep the stick on one side. However you choose to do it is fine. The best advice i can give you though, is practice! The best way to teach yourself is to get some experience! Hope that helps! ~superfluffa~

How do you make a good pocket in a lacrosse stick?

Loosen your sidewall strings and your string at the bottom of the stick. Push a ball in as deep as you need it and wedge something in there to hold the ball in (a piece of wood might work well). Tighten your sidewalls and bottom string just enough to keep that pocket and remove the wedge holding the ball. You might also have to play with your shooting strings, as your throw might go a little down now.

What is the best describes the Lacrosse sport?

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!

When its cold outside should you keep your lacrosse stick inside the house or in the garage?

If it's wood it doesn't matter. However if your head is plastic it is better to keep it inside because the cold makes the plastic brittle and more likely to break.
