lacrosse

is a team sportthat is played using a small solid rubber ball and a long-handled racquet called a crosse or lacrosse stick.Offensively, the objective of the game is to use the lacrosse stick to catch, carry, and pass the ball in an effort to score by ultimately hurling the ball into an opponent's goal. Defensively, the objective is to keep the opposing team from scoring and to depossess them of the ball through the use of stick checking and body contact or positioning.

Where you can find a Lacrosse player:-Lacrosse Field-Sporting good store-workout facility

Vocabulary:Ball or Ball downAll players usually shout ball any time the ball is on the ground. Often this is the first indicator to the player who had it that he has dropped it. Ball can also signal the intent of a player to go after the ball instead of the man.Body CheckDefensively using the body to hit an opposing ball carrier or while contesting an opponent for a player a loose ball. The body check must always be done above the waist and from the front or side.The BoxThe rectangular shaped area around the crease/goal. Defenders seldom press players outside of the box. The distance involved makes it all but impossible to score from outside of the box. The rules state that the offense can only possess the ball for so long without entering the box. At the end of a game the team that is ahead must keep the ball inside of the box.ButtThe end of a crosse opposite the head. All shaft ends need to be covered with a butt-cap.Change planes – When a shooter has a close in shot, the goalie must respect where the ball carrier starts his shot. If the shooter holds his stick high, the keeper does the same. Therefore it is most effective for the shooter to start high and shoot low, or vice versa. This is ‘changing planes’.ClampingOn the face-off, a player pushes the back of his stick down on the ball in the attempt to gain control of it.ClearingAn important defensive maneuver where defending players run or pass the ball out of their goal area. Clearing is best done along the sidelines, away from the front of the goal.“Coast to Coast” only occurs when a player nearest their endline takes the ball all the way down the field to the opposing team’s end of the field. Most of the time, this refers to clearing midfielders, or defensemen who carry the ball across midfield and into the offensive half and towards the cage. Coast to coast- from one goal to the other.CradlingIn order to maintain control of the ball when moving along the field, players turn their wrists and arms to cradle the ball in the stick pocket.CreaseThe eighteen-foot diameter circle surrounding each team’s goal.CuttingAn attacking player without the ball darts around a defender toward the goal in order to receive a “feed pass.” A cutting player is a cutter.D Cut - A maneuver used by an attackman to get open for a shot. The player starts on the GLE, about 5 yards away from the goal. He then makes a rounded cut, on the side away from the ball. (completing a “D” shape) This is often the third attackmans’ move during a fast break.Extra Man (aka Man Up or EMO) - Describes the team at a player advantage in a penalty situation. Opposite of man down.Face-offTakes place at the start of each quarter, after every goal, and after certain dead balls. Two opposing players crouch down at midfield, hold their sticks flat on the ground and press the backs of their stick pockets together. The ball is then placed between the pockets and, when signaled to start, the players “rake” or clamp on the ball to vie for control.Face DodgingA player with the ball cradles the stick across his face in an attempt to dodge a stick-poking defender. Generally an open field dodge that does not involve changing hands.
