Lacrosse

I had never heard of Lacrosse, before my grandson started playing it. 
I found out that Lacrosse is Canada's oldest sport as well as our official summer sport!
It's amazing what you learn from grandchildren!
 Click here for the History of Lacrosse if you wish.

My grandson has been playing this game for some years now.
I find it a very rough game...with little protective equipment on the players. 
They play with a little bouncy ball...that they catch in their net...how? 
I have know idea... I could never do it!

My grandson's team made it to the Provincial Playoffs this year! 
It was exciting to watch the games...so exciting hubby lost his voice... 
and it was a great experience for the players!

  7. Glad he is enjoying his sport! It looks like the helmets keep them well-protected. Our nephew used to play.

  8. I think lacrosse is our country's best kept secret although it looks like an exciting game. My brother used to play it many years ago.
