Players running on a field. Shoving each other, throwing the ball into the air; and scoring. Lacrosse is played with 10 players in the field at a time, and is like soccer and hockey but with a small ball and a stick. Typical formations are set-up in a 4-3-3 format, which showcases four defensive players, three offensive players and three players that can go anywhere on the field. All players, except for the goalkeeper, have to use their sticks to pass, shoot, catch the ball, and carry the ball.
Klein Lacrosse is an organization for youth and high school. It has teams for both girls and boys. The lacrosse organization has been active for 27 years and has teams for K-12 grade students from Klein.
In lacrosse, there are plenty of ways to disarm someone that has the ball. All shots have to be above the waist and below the shoulders.
“In lacrosse, you will get a lot of bruises,” sophomore Ryan Deleon said. Deleon is a member of the Klein Lacrosse team.
Sometimes an athlete might get hurt badly to the point that they have to miss a game or a practice. Even though they can’t play, they can still show up to the game and support the team.
