Q: What is Lacrosse?
A team sport that originated with the Native Americans. Each player carries a Lacrosse stick. Offensively, the objective of the game is to score by shooting the ball into an opponent's goal, using the lacrosse stick to catch, carry, and pass the ball to do so. Defensively, the objective is to keep the opposing team from scoring and to gain the ball through the use of positioning.
