Lacrosse originated in England in the year of 1867.
Rules of lacrosse:
For each team, you must have four players stay on the defensive side and three players on the offensive side. The length of the game is 4, 12 minute quarters. Only the goalie can touch the ball with their hands. Fouls consist of tripping, unnecessary roughness, cross checking (making contact with another player with the stick between your hands), slashing (a stick check not on the opponents gloves or stick), or illegal body checking.
Scoring consists of flicking the ball out of the lacrosse stick into the goal.
The field dimensions of lacrosse are 20 yards from the middle of the field and 20 yards long, parallel with the sideline.
The basic strategy of the game of lacrosse is to always move, make sharp and short passes to the outside of the defense men, and catch every pass moving toward the ball.
The equipment used for lacrosse is the crosse, the ball, the helmet, the mouthpiece, the glove, and other protective equipment.
The types of leagues that exist in lacrosse is mens, womens, girls, and boys. The sport has changed since it originated. The lacrosse ball was originally made of deerskin balls, now they are made of rubber. Lacrosse used to be played to toughen warriors up for war but now it made to play for fun.
