Lacrosse is our country’s oldest sport, developed and played by Native Americans for centuries and modified by European immigrants. Lacrosse has since developed into different forms – box and field lacrosse. At NGLA, our teams play field lacrosse. The game is played outdoors, usually, on a football-sized field, with between six and 11 players plus a goalie. Both the girls and boys games are fast-paced, requiring skill, stamina, and athleticism.
