How does lacrosse start?

It starts when two midfielders face off in the middle of the field. Once they start two teammates rush in from both sides (east to west) to help. Then the ball is advanced to one side of the field.


How does a lacrosse game start?

as you know there are 3 attackmen and defenders on each side of the field, both behind the restraining line. There is also a goalie on each side of the field. There will be 3 middies on each side of the 50 yard line with both teams having their own side. two middies, 1 from each team, will line up on each side of the field crouching down. They will have the outside of their pocket facing the ball with the pocket punched inside out. Not one part of the lacrosse stick can touch the ball as also their sticks must be parrallel. The ref will tell you to go down and when the whistle blows they will both go after the ball. As the other middies can help everyone else must stay behind the restraining line until the ref calls possession.

But the above is just for men's lacrosse. In women's lax, there are 5 middies per team: four around the circle and one in the middle per team. Then there are three low defense and low attackmen behind the restraining line per team. The backs of the heads of the sticks of the two girls in the middle (one for each team) are pressed together with the ball in between. On the whistle, the heads are pulled or pushed up and away, sending the ball through the air. This is called the draw. The ball can go anywhere depending on the skill of the centers; usually it is drawn to a teammate waiting on the circle, but you can draw the ball to yourself; you just have to be tall so you can grab it and gain possession.

If you don't know how to loosen sidewall strings then you can soak your head and mesh in hot water. Then wedge a ball in the pocket as deep as you like using a pencil or knife to keep it in place. Then let dry. You can also soak it and take a metal pole and push it on the pole and move the head around. Also, most likely when buying new mesh it is easily maneuverable.

What are the smallest lacrosse shoulder pads?

There are many types and brands that advertise "liners" or "speed" versions of pads, but I have found that only a few are worth the dollar. First, I recommend the Maverik Maybach Speed Liners. They are light and comfortable, as advertised. Second, I recommend the Warrior MPG UltraLyte 8.0 Lacrosse Shoulder Pad which are your best bet for some protection, but less than the Maveriks. Lastly, I recommend this unconventional method of getting comfortable, but compact pads: Warrior MPG 4.5 Lacrosse Shoulder Pad. Don't "diss" this idea just because they are "beginner" pads. I actually still wear these because they are so small and compact. When you get them in, you need to cut the shoulder sum and plastic piece off nearest the neck. This oprion is the cheapest and in my opinion, most comfortable way to go.

To elaborate, the North American Indians in the great lakes area were the first to be observed playing the game by the french.

There are many different combinations of heads and shafts. I like Birne equipment a lot. The Clutch is a great head for every position.

Unfortunately the grip can chip of unlike the swizzle, but the swizzle is 30 more dollars then the swizz beat.

For lacrosse heads? It means you make the narrow part of the head more narrow. This lets you have less space to catch but less space for the ball to fall out of.

Is lacrosse the national sport of Canada?

== == "In 1994, Bill C-212 was introduced to officially declare hockey as Canada's national sport. Opposition came from supporters of lacrosse who wanted to recognize the traditional and cultural significance of this sport. Consequently, Bill C-212 was amended to recognize both sports. Thus, on May 12, 1994, Canada's National Sport Act (Bill C-212) became law, reading: "To recognize hockey as Canada's National Winter Sport and lacrosse as Canada's National Summer Sport". While hockey's popularity is unquestionable - especially in Canada, lacrosse is still enjoyed by Canadians and has gained popularity in the United States, England, Ireland, and Scotland." Website:
