Played Lacross in high school.

Never ever put your head down and ignore the other players. Hard checking is allowed and I was clobbered hard a couple of times.

I played as a Junior and Senior in High School. Played soccer in college for 3 years.

Might have been interesting to play in college, but my midwestern college did not offer the sport. It is mostly an east coast thing.

At the earliest levels through the pros you focus on the fundamentals. Scooping, catching, passing, and shooting. Next you would learn dodging and defending. Dodges like the bull, roll, face, and split dodge. Playing defense is very similar to basketball. Either man to man or a zone. Defensive checks involve the slap check, poke check, and many other creative methods to dislodge the ball.

At more advanced levels you learn clearing, riding, offensive sets, faceoffs, defensive sliding (double teams), etc.

I played for Tennessee back in 1977. I didn’t know a thing about Lacrosse; I was an hon mention all state LB in Texas HS so they signed me up. It was great fun, hits were just like football and scooping the ball was like shoveling horse manure. I mainly just plowed into folks and passed the ball to others. The ball hurt like hell and I wasn’t too macho to wear the cup.

I played in high school and a club team in college. It was the most exciting of the sports I played when young. When I played in college the home team was required to supply the keg for after the game. The beer always tasted like nectar after a hard game.

I heard a promotion for lax the other day on some thread that said;

“It’s like baseball, with more hits.”
“It’s like soccer, with more scoring.”
“It’s like hockey. With balls.”

My younger brother played goalie in high school. He won the brass balls award from his team every year. He always made a point to lay out the first attack-man who got within range. He made sure to let him know it was going to really hurt when he got that next buddy pass. He said he did not mind if they scored if they were more timid the next time.
