Lacrosse can be played out doors on a field (similar to a soccer field) or in a indoor stadium. The standard lacrosse field is 110 X 60 yards. There are 10 players per team: 3 midfielders, 3 attackmen, 3 defensemen, and 1 goalie. Lacrosse is very similar to Hockey, Lacrosse is played with a lacrosse stick and a hard rubber ball. The object of the game is to gain possession of the ball after the "face-off", pass the ball around to other team mates until there is an opportunity to shoot at the goal. Every goal scored is worth one point. When a team is in possession of the ball they are playing offense and try to score a goal (while the other plays defense), if they lose possession to the other team they play defense while the other team tries to score on their goal. After a goal is scored the teams face off again. Lacrosse is a full contact sport. Check out for more information.

Better from Someone who obviously plays

there are2 ways to play.but im only going to tell you the first one. it is on an out door field. about the size of a soccer field, with 2 goals on either side of the field. but there is a space between the end line and the goal line extended(a line that verifies where you put the goal). then there is a line in the middle of the goal line extended and the half line. this line tells the attack men (the playres who try to score goals) and the defence man the playres who try to stop them.

At the beginning of the game, the apposing centers "face off" for position of the ball. This happens after each goal is scored and after every quarter. There are four 15-minute quarters to make up one 60 minute Lacrosse game.
