Equipment

Families supply their own equipment (for girls - stick, goggles).  Mpls Youth Lacrosse has a limited supply of equipment available for families receiving financial assistance and/or trying the sport for the first time.  We will be doing an equipment swap at our parent meeting (Date and Time TBD).  We recommend players try and buy used equipment (especially sticks and helmets).  

2022 SEASON AGE GROUP CHART

WHAT IS Field LACROSSE?

Girls lacrosse is played with 12 players on each team including the goalkeeper. The object of the game is to use a long-handled stick (known as a crosse or lacrosse stick) to catch, cradle, and pass a solid yellow rubber lacrosse ball in an effort to score by throwing the ball into an opponent’s goal. Defensive and offensive strategies are similar to basketball while play in the midfield most resembles soccer. 

HOW IS GIRLS LACROSSE DIFFERENT THAN BOYS?

The biggest difference between boys and girls lacrosse is that there is minimal contact allowed in the girl's game. Incidental body-to-body contact is allowed but dangerous contact is penalized (similar to basketball) and there is no legal stick-to-body contact. The only protective equipment required is a mouth guard and face guard/ goggles.
