BRIEF HISTORY OF LACROSSE
Played for centuries by North American First Nations, known as the Medicine Game, modern lacrosse enjoys growing popularity on both sides of the border. Lacrosse demands speed, endurance, toughness, and skill, a challenging feat for most athletes.
Box lacrosse, also known as box, or indoor lacrosse, is an indoor version of lacrosse played mostly in North America. The game originated in Canada in the 1930s and is the national Summer sport.
It's always a good idea to watch some videos to help you fine tune your skills and learn new drills to sharpen your game!
