What is field lacrosse?
Field lacrosse is a full contact, outdoor version of lacrosse, played with 9 runners and a goalie. Field lacrosse is the fastest growing game in North America at every level. The appeal? It's a neat composite of other sports, it's fast, extremely athletic! As parents discover that field lacrosse is more exciting than soccer, cheaper than ice hockey and not as dangerous as football, the game is getting a closer look.
Unlike box lacrosse, there is no time requirement to take a shot, so the team can maintain control of the ball for as longs as they want.
Players who have played box lacrosse will find field lacrosse very different. The essential skills such as passing, catching and shooting remain similar, but the level of contact, game rules and strategy are very unique.
As players discover their uniqueness, they develop into role players and learn to find positions on the field where they are most effective. Goalies and face-off specialists are an example and become designated early in their career.
Field lacrosse is an NCAA sport and many local players have received scholarships to play at US colleges. Most recently, 2015 Bomber Grad Kobe Robinson committed to play for Olivet College in Michigan. Former Barrie players can be found throughout all three NCAA lacrosse divisions.
