Lacrosse is a very fun sport because itís a combination of football and hockey. In lacrosse you can hit, pass, shoot, but to win, you have to score in a goal.

In lacrosse the goals are small, so itís a challenge between both teams. During a game, you canít pick up the ball with your hands, hit someone on the back, or check the goalie when he has the ball. You can get sent to the penalty box for doing unsafe actions. There are different sticks for each player, so it makes lacrosse very interesting. Since lacrosse can be a dangerous sport, you have to wear safe and comfortable equipment. You need a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, and a stick. Lacrosse can be played in any season because there are box lacrosse (winter), regular lacrosse (spring and fall), and summer lacrosse tournaments.

The advantage of playing lacrosse is you can play anytime, anywhere because all you need is a stick and a ball! It is really easy to practice lacrosse because you can go inside the house with a rubber or foam ball. The disadvantage is if you accidentally lose a ball, itís really hard to find.

I really like lacrosse because it is really fun and itís very intense. The sport is very unique because it is the only sport that involves playing with an alloy (metal) stick. I also really enjoy playing it because no one really knows about the sport lacrosse. Overall, I think lacrosse is very fun and easy after you get the hang of it.
