Learning Lacrosse

Hello everyone. I have just finished my daily meditation session and since I am feeling calm and serene I figured I’d sit down and post a new blog entry.

 

As you all know lacrosse is my game of choice. I play the game as much as I possibly can and I like to try out all of the different positions you can play. I want to share with you what each position in lacrosse is and what the duties of each position entails. Let the learning begin.

 

Attack – When playing the attack position you are focused mostly on the offensive side of the game. You’re primary goal is to, well, score goals. There are three attackers on the field, per team, at one time during field lacrosse play. Attackers use a shorter lacrosse stick.

 

Midfielders – Midfielders are involved in all aspects of the lacrosse game. They score, play defense, take face-offs and run an awful lot. There are three midfielders on the field, per team, at one time during field lacrosse play. Midfielders use a shorter lacrosse stick.

 

Defensemen – Just the opposite of attackers, the defensemen focus on the defensive side of the game. They try and prevent goals from being scored on their team. There are three defensemen on the field, per team, at one time during field lacrosse play. Defensemen use a longer lacrosse stick.

 

Goalie – A goalie is the last line of defense on a lacrosse team. He stands in the net and tries to block all the shots taken by the opposing team. There is one goalie on the field, per team, at one time during field lacrosse play. Goalies use sticks that have a very wide head on them for catching and blocking shots.

 

I hope you all learned something today. Now, you just have to figure out which lacrosse position is the one for you.

 

Have a peaceful day!
