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 rubber lacrosse ball in an effort to score by shooting the ball into an opponent’s goal. There are four main positions: attack, defense, midfield, and goalie. Defensive and offensive strategies are similar to basketball while strategy in the midfield is most like soccer.
In women’s lacrosse, any kind of body checks or stick checks that hit the player will result in a penalty. As a result of the limited legal contact, the only protective equipment required is a mouth guard and goggles. Additionally, girls lacrosse sticks have different requirements, the most noticeable being the depth of the pocket. The limited physical contact and shallow pocket encourages more finesse and a greater emphasis on stick skills, especially at the youth level.
