What is Lacrosse?
Lacrosse is a fast-paced team sport and is the ultimate adrenaline rush. Equipped with a stick with a net on the end and a rubber ball, improve your fitness and build strength as you outscore your opponents. You don’t have to be tall to play lacrosse, in fact, lacrosse is great for everyone! Shorter people have the chance to bob and weave through opponents and taller players can make crucial tackles. The speed, the power, the team spirit and precision, make Lacrosse a great option for a new sport – and there are well-established men’s, women’s and mixed versions, so there’s always a way to get involved.
