5 Reasons Your Sons should be Playing Lacrosse

We’re here to share with you the top 5 reasons your sons should be playing lacrosse Today!

1. Height doesn’t matter

Boys can be absolutely brutal to one another about height. When it comes to lacrosse, the player’s height has no bearing on their ability to perform on the field. Anyone can be an impactful teammate regardless of his physical composition.

2. Versatile skills that translate to other sports

Lacrosse is a combination of endurance running, sprinting, hand-eye coordination, finesse, and team playing, all rolled into one. The skillsets learned while playing lacrosse will make players better at every other sport they play.

3.  Teamwork

Being part of a team growing up is a great way to cultivate discipline, teambuilding skills, and friendships that will last a lifetime. Lacrosse is a major team sport, and teams cannot be successful without everyone working together to achieve a common goal.

4. It’s an athletic challenge

Lacrosse is more involved than some other sports such as tennis or cross-country. It requires strength, endurance, stick skills, agility,  team coordination and play planning,  Lacrosse is a physical sport, and it makes the wins at the end of the games that much more satisfying.

5. It’s safe

Lacrosse gets a bad rep for safety. However, due to the protective equipment lacrosse players wear during matches, it is ranked way far down for a sport that can cause bodily harm. Soccer, for example, is more dangerous than lacrosse when it comes to injuries.
