Are you already familiar with Lacrosse? Besides ice hockey, this is the sport of choice in Canada. This sport can be played in both contact and non-contact versions. The contact variant of lacrosse is seen as a mixture of basketball, American football and ice hockey (including physical contact) while the contact-poor variant of lacrosse is compared to hockey where the ball is moved through the air
All players have a stick, the ‘crosse’, with a net at the end that is used to throw, catch and scoop the ball off the ground. The stick is also used in defence to stop the ball or to ‘check’ the opposition. Checking is done by hitting the top of the opponent’s stick with the ball with the stick. This ball is made of hard rubber and is the size of a tennis ball. The aim of the game is to get the ball into the opponent’s goal using the stick. Each goal scores one point.
