What is lacrosse?

Lacrosse is a sport played with sticks and balls with the goal of advancing the ball into the opposing net. Some call it the fastest sport on two feet. It's got a lot in common with hockey, and was invented by the First Nations people of Canada.

What kind of equipment?

Sticks


There are three types of lacrosse sticks. There is the regular lacrosse stick, a 40-42 inch stick meant for passing and scoring with. This is what the man in the front is holding. The "D-Pole" is what the defender is carrying behind the man, it can be anywhere from 52 to 72 inches, but most defenders will prefer as long a stick as possible for poke checking and hitting. There is also this guy.



I really don't know what the protocol is on goaltender's sticks. They have huge heads for catching 90-100MPH shots.

Protective Gear

Here are my sick MS paint skills.



Some players will wear shin pads, but they get made fun of, so most don't.

Positions

ATTACK



These guys linger on the opposite end of the field, and just bomb sick shots all day. That's pretty much their job description. Set up for a sick goal.

Midfielder



These guys take faceoffs and run around everywhere on the field, they often advance the ball up the field from a defensive position. They have to be pretty well conditioned and are asked to do jobs that both defenders and attack players would do.

Long Stick Midfielder



These guys do the same duties of the midfielder but are more defensively oriented. If a midfielder is switching out for a line change while the team is backed into their zone, an LSM will typically come out. For some teams, these guys are unicorns and are only out there rarely. They sometimes take shots and look goofy as hell.

Defense



They hit, stop, and block the attack and middies from getting the ball into their net. They will utilize poke and body checks to keep them out. Sometimes they will block shots. They're pretty crazy.

They stop the ball??? They don't wear shin pads. They're weird.

Rules

Many of the same rules as hockey are shared. In Box Lacrosse, you can even fight. But this entire OP is about Field Lacrosse so eh. You cannot go offsides, and you can have a maximum of four people in a zone. You can't go crazy and swing your stick around with one hand, and if you hit someone in the head with a two hand slash you're in bad shape. Head contact is illegal.

College Teams

If it's an east coast school, they probably have a lacrosse team. Denver is the most westerly lacrosse team.

Well that OP sucked, and you do too OP

Thanks! If you want to check out college lacrosse, you can often find it on ESPNU or streaming online. Pro lacrosse is harder to find, and might be on weird niche channels or streaming. Box lacrosse games are hilarious.

I've always wondered why there was no Lacrosse thread on SA, and am happy that this is a thread that exists now.

It is fun as poo poo and I'm getting back in to it after a few years away from the game.
Always good to see the game growing too, hopefully not too long before we see some D1 West coast schools.

You sauce some passes broh

Was just lookin' for something rec. Most search results are for dudes named Dallas. Floorball was easy, with all the Nokia campuses we used to have around there were a lot of Swedes and Finns. I'll keep looking.

Lacrosse has a very poor online presence. I can call some friends who live in OK/North TX and see what they know

e: I would do what DJExile said, checking online it's a lot of "D1-D3 PLAYERS ONLY", which is hilarious, even though Texas is huge, there isn't exactly a glut of lacrosse players.

Also I blocked a shot off my inner thigh that was absolutely whipped by an LSM. It looks as bad as you think it might :stonk:. The limp today is real.
