Lacrosse is a fast-paced, exciting sport that combines the best aspects of many other sports. Ultimately, the object of lacrosse is to shoot the ball into the opponent's goal; and, the team that scores the most goals wins.
There are many differences between girls' and boys' lacrosse; for example, in the numbers of players that take the field. More information on boys lacrosse can be found here; more information on girls lacrosse can be found here.
