Why Play Lacrosse?
Lacrosse is Canada’s National game. It’s the fastest game on two feet!
It’s a great physical conditioner. Running speed and stamina are well rewarded in the game of lacrosse!
It develops agility and good hand/eye co-ordination.
Develops discipline over emotion.
Hockey scholarships are tough to get with so many players, but box lacrosse players from Canada are at a premium in the U.S.
380 Colleges and Universities in the U.S. offer a men’s lacrosse program and 195 offer a women’s program.
Hockey coaches say they can identify a lacrosse player in their midst. Tenacious, fearless and tough – with really soft hands. Their ability to handle traffic in front of the net sets them apart from other players.
If you want to be a better hockey player then lacrosse has to be your summer sport!
The Relationship Between Hockey and Lacrosse
“… Lacrosse was the key in the development of the greatest scorer in hockey history.”
Quote from Walter Gretzky on his son Wayne Gretzky
