Are you already familiar with Lacrosse? This is next to ice hockey one of the biggest sports in Canada. This sport can be played in both the contact and the low-contact variant. The contact variant of lacrosse is seen as a mixture of basketball, American football and ice hockey (including physical contact) while the low-contact 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 with which the ball is thrown, caught and scooped from the ground. The stick is also used in defense to stop the ball or to ‘check’ the opponent. 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 object of the game is to get the ball into the opponent’s goal using the stick. Each goal scores one point.
