Lacrosse is also known as the fastest game on two feet. It is a sport in which speed, agility and communication are important components.
Lacrosse is a sport where men and women are separated. The differences between the male and female rules are very clear. Men are wearing head-, shoulder-, elbow- and hand protection due the fact that it is a full-contact sport. Women are only obligated to wear a mouth guard during this fast, tactical game. Men’s lacrosse is more related to ice hockey, but then through the air. Women’s lacrosse is alike field hockey and again through the air.
