Indoor lacrosse is also known as box lacrosse. The game was invented in Canada in the 1930s by hockey arena owners who wanted to do business in the summer months. Indoor lacrosse is a game that features quick passes and attacks. It requires the skill to shoot the lacrosse ball accurately.
Players and Equipment
Indoor lacrosse is played by a team of six players. Each team has a goalkeeper and five outfield players called runners. The player positions include forwards, transition players and defenders, but they can move all over the field and are not restricted to staying on their part of the lacrosse field. This is different than the outdoor game. Players use lacrosse sticks that measure between 40 and 46 inches. Players must wear protective equipment, including a helmet, gloves and shoulder pads.
Lacrosse has it origins in a Native American game by the Plains indians of modern day Canada. Lacrosse is recognised as one of the oldest team sports in America with organised games recorded dating back to the 17th century. Lacrosse was observed being played by the Native Americans as far bay as 1630 by french jesuit missionaries who condoned it for its violence however many other European settlers were intrigued enough to start taking an interest and the game became popular to play amongst the French colonists from 1740 onwards. The game steadily grew in popularity over the next 100 years with demonstrations by Indian teams proving popular with the new Canadian establishment.
