lacrosse in general
Lacrosse is a fast-paced, tactical team sport played by two teams of ten/twelve players each who use netted sticks (called the cross) in order to pass and catch a rubber ball with the aim of scoring goals by propelling the ball into the opponent’s goal.
5 years ago there were only a few lacrosse clubs in The Netherlands. Today 13-14 clubs are representing lacrosse in the Netherlands, 4 new clubs are getting started and with over 500 players The Netherlands is rapidly becoming one of the leading lacrosse playing countries in Europe.
This year the Dutch Lacrosse team won the silver medal at the European Championships, which makes us the second best lacrosse playing country of Europe!
In its modern incarnation, men’s lacrosse is played by three attackmen, three midfielders, three defensemen, and one goaltender on a grass or artificial turf field. Men wear helmets, gloves and other protective equipment as contact is an integral part of the game.
Offensively the object of the game is to use the lacrosse stick to catch, carry, and pass the ball in an effort to score by shooting the ball into an opponent’s goal. Defensively the object is to keep the opposing team from scoring and to dispossess them of the ball through the use of stick checking and bodychecking.
Women’s lacrosse is played 12 V 12 and is the more tactical version of the game. With less deep pockets on their sticks, womens lacrosse is all about stickcontrol, fast dodging and passing. Women wear protective eyewear (except for the goalie, who wears a helmet goalie mask), but less overall equipment because hitting is not permitted in the women’s game except for minor stick-checks.
The Titans are also building up a women’s team, so if you are interested in womans lacrosse, please send us a mail and join us on one of our practise days!
