Do you Know Sport Called Lacrosse? - Pet and Hobby 7

The stick to handle the ball


We saw kids or teenagers play a ball with stick in our neighborhood every week (usually on Saturday). It is estimated that about 1.6 million people play a sport called Lacrosse in the USA.


The recent number of players is increasing very much compared to 0.25 million only in 2001. Interestingly, at least half of them is kids or below 15 years old teenagers.


The important equipments (gears) to play Lacrosse:

- stick (Crosse)

- ball

- helmet

- mouthpiece

- glove

- pads to protect shoulders, arms and ribs.


Teenagers are ready to play Lacrosse at our neighborhood park.


We might wonder that is this high risk sport?


No, it is a moderate risk sport compared to others. Here are top 5 sports caused injuries:


1) Basketball

- about 570,000 players injured per year


2) Football

- about 466, 000 players injured per year.


3) Soccer

- 231,000 players are treated due to injured per year.


4) Softball

- average of 64,000 players injured per year.


5) Ice hockey

- approximately 10,000 players treated due to injured per year


Then, another question that are there professional teams of Lacrosse?


Yes, 6 professional teams. The richest player is Paul Rabil with US$ 3 million net worth.


Finally, do you know or ever watch sport called Lacrosse? Do you know someone who play this sport?

  1. Didn't they play LaCross on Teen Wolf? It's a cool sport, but we don't have it around here in the midwest. Looks fun!

  2. That's cool they play this sport in your neighborhood. Always fun to get out and watch a game. Usually, it's baseball here, but lately more soccer seems to be happening. Even in these pandemic times.

  9. Thanks on the heads up on Lacrosse. I have never played, but it looks like a fun game. As for risks, I am a little surprised that basketball is at the top, as this is no contact game.

  10. When we lived in California a few of the local high schools had lacrosse teams, although just the upscale neighborhood schools! I am not sure why, unless the equipment is more expensive than most. Maybe as a team sport, it is, since each player has equipment and not just the school's ball.

  13. Tanza, Don't know anyone who plays Lacrosse. However, this sport has been around a long time. Its the oldest organized sport in North America. Originally, it was a tribal game played by Native Americans in the Eastern Woodlands area. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  14. The only person I know who plays lacrosse is a childhood friend of my son. He got a lacrosse scholarship.
    Here in Oklahoma, a similar game called stickball is played by some of the Native American tribes.
