Lacrosse is a team sport where players use a stick with a net to catch, scoop, and throw a ball into the opposing teams net. Considered to be the first sport in America, Lacrosse was originally invented by North American Native tribes, played by the French, and then widely adopted by the Canadians. Played on a field roughly the same size as a soccer field, two opposing teams fight for a solid rubber ball and attempt to shoot it into the opposing teams net to score. Often considered a violent game, lacrosse is a common high school and college sport.

How do you play lacrosse?

Much like soccer, lacrosse is played on a similar field with 20 players on the field. You have three attackmen, three midfielders, three defenders and a goalie. The goal is to get the lacrosse ball with your lacrosse stick and score it into the opposing net to score points.

How long is a lacrosse game?

There are four 15-minute quarters that equal out to 60 minutes of playing time. Halftime usually lasts 15 minutes in a regular-season game, but in title games, halftime is 30 minutes. Time is also affected if there are penalties/fouls or if the game goes into overtime.


Who invented lacrosse?

Lacrosse was invented by the North American Native Tribes and is the first national sport played in the United States. Lacrosse is also known as “the creators game or the medicine game” and is sought out to be a form of medicine for Native Americans when they were sick.

Lacrosse Goal
Front elevation illustrations of Lacrosse Goal with a goalie

A Lacrosse Goal is primary piece of field equipment in the Lacrosse sports composed of a steel frame woven in loose netting protruding backward. The lacrosse goal is very portable and collapsible and forms a square shape when placed on the ground. The goalie stands guard in the front of a lacrosse goal to prevent an opponent from scoring with a shot while the opponent aims to get the ball in the lacrosse goal or net to score and receive points. Thus size, net usable, portability, and collapsibility are essential when buying a lacrosse goal.

Lacrosse Goals have a regulated inside width of 6’ (182.9 cm), inner height of 6’ (182.9 cm), and depth of 7’ (213.4 cm). The weight of a Lacrosse Goal is typically between 35-115 lb (15.9-52.2 kg).

Lacrosse Field
Group of scaled illustrations of various sports fields compared to the Lacrosse Field

A Lacrosse Field is a rectangular grass field defined by three main areas of play within the sport of Lacrosse. Depending on what team is playing, the opposing side is called the attack or goal area, the home side is called the defensive area, and the center is the midfield. Along the sides of the midfield are wing areas, and along the sides of the defensive and attack areas are sidelines. Unlike most field games, the Lacrosse Goals are located in the center of the attack and defensive areas and are placed in the middle of a circular area called a crease.

Lacrosse Fields have an overall length of 110 yards (100.59 m) and width of 60 yards (54.86 m) for a total area of 59,400 ft² (5518 m²). The crease has a radius of 3 yards (2.75 m) with a goal line in the center placed 15 yards (13.72 m) from the end line. The wing line is located 10 yards (9.14 m) from the sidelines with the restraining line at 20 yards (18.29 m) from the midfield line.
