Lacrosse player running on the field Copyright: © HSZ

Lacrosse is a classic college sport, particularly in Canada. However, over time this exotic sport has spread beyond the borders of North America and is steadily finding more supporters across the pond. According to the international regulations ten male players – twelve in women's lacrosse – face each other. Lacrosse is played with sticks with nets on the end made out of metal and plastic. The sticks are used to pass a hard tennisball-sized rubber ball between the field players to then score in the opposing team's goal. Aside from a feeling for the ball and corresponding stick technique players need a high level of awareness, tactical understanding, and running ability. Lacrosse training at Aachen University Sports is offered in collaboration with VfL 1905 Aachen e. V. Women and men train separately. Protective equipment is only required in men's lacrosse due to the different regulations.
