Learn to Play Lacrosse

Lacrosse is a fast moving sport.

There are 10 people from a team on the field at a time (20 people on the field total). There are 3 attackmen, 3 middies, 3 defensemen and 1 goalie.

Much like basketball, there are 4 quarters in a game, and the team with the most points at the end of the games wins.

A player scores by shooting the ball from their stick's pocket into the opposing team's goal.

The lacrosse ball is about the size of a baseball. It is a solid rubber ball.

Tip: Practice Cradling. Good ball control is one key to successful play.

Control The Ball

The other team can try to get the ball out of your stick by: hitting you with their stick, hitting you with their body. To prevent the ball from falling out, a player must cradle the ball.

Outside shooting is also important for a middie. A good outside shooting threat can cause the defense to completely shift their game.

The player carrying the ball can get past the defenseman by using different dodges. Some of these dodges include: Face dodge, Split dodge, and Bull dodge.
