What is it?
Lacrosse is a team sport, which uses a stick with a net on the end and a rubber ball. The objective of the sport is to outscore the opponent by throwing the rubber ball (with your lacrosse stick) into your opponent’s goal. The stick is used to catch and carry the rubber ball.
Why is it good for me?
- A great form of aerobic exercise
- Builds strength as it is a physical sport
- Builds team spirit
How much does it cost?
Clubs will lend sticks until you feel ready to buy your own. Lacrosse sticks can be purchased from as little as £30, whilst club membership is unlikely to exceed £50. Your local club will be able to let you know what you’ll need to get started.
What equipment do I need?
Each player needs to obtain:
- A lacrosse stick
- Gum shield
Normal sportswear should be fine, enquire at your local club
