What is Lacrosse?

Lacrosse is a sport played with a ball and netted stick: 

A sport in which two teams of 8 to 11 players use sticks with a net pouch “ a Crosse”  at one end to throw and catch a small hard rubber ball. The objective is to score a goal by throwing the ball into the opposing team's goal net. Lacrosse was originated by Native North Americans.

The Sport has been played in North America for over 300 years first witnessed in 1630!  Making this the oldest sport in North America!

The sport today is played by both Boys and Girls.  Most leagues in Wisconsin have teams from U9 grade thru High School.
