Lacrosse has its origins in a tribal game played by eastern Woodlands Native Americans and by some Plains Indians tribes in what is now Canada.
The game was and is intense and physical.There were hundreds of Native Americans playing a ball game with sticks.The game began with the ball being throne into the air and the two teams go to catch it. Players swarm the ball and slowly moving across the field. Passing the ball was thought of as a trick, and it was seen as cowardly to dodge an opponent.Today lacrosse is a lot like hockey .The game is played by you shoot the ball into the opponent's goal and to keep the other team from scoring. The team scoring the most goals wins.In Lacrosse you score a goal by throwing the ball in the other teams net This counts for one point.
Penalties in lacrosse are slashing,tripping,cross checking,Unsportsmanlike Conduct,Unnecessary Roughness and Illegal Body Checking.
The lacrosse sticks originally had one or two shooting strings and were made out of wood. The pocket was normally made from "cat gut", or leather that was strung through holes created on the side of the wood to make a web that Indians used to catch the ball with. Now a days Instead of being made of wood, most sticks are being made of metal ranging from titanium. The heads have changed from being part of the whole stick and made of the same wood to being created out of plastics and molded into different shapes for better handling or faster shots or better ball scooping.
