Lacrosse is a fast paced game that incorporates many of the same skills and strategies as soccer, basketball, hockey and football. It has often been called the fastest game on two feet. In lacrosse, everyone is actively involved on the field, everyone touches the ball and everyone can score. There is one unwritten rule in lacrosse. The ball never gets tired.
In addition to being the oldest American Sport, it is also the fastest growing sport in the United States. The number of boys and girls playing lacrosse has doubled every year since, at least 2000.
Most the best academic colleges and universities acrosse the United states have Lacrosse programs, including the Univeristy of Michigan, Notre Dame and Northwestern, to name only a few. Almost all of these schools provide scholarships and other financial incentives to entice boys and girls to play for them.
In fact, there are currently more lacrosse scholarships for girls than there are girls to take them.
