Women’s & Men’s Lacrosse is a Ball Sport on the Official Program for The World Games 2022.

HISTORY OF LACROSSE

Lacrosse is a team sport played with a stick and a ball. The purpose of each team is to score by causing the ball to enter the goal of its opponent and to prevent the other team from securing the ball and scoring. The ball is kept in play by being carried, thrown, or batted with the stick, or rolled or kicked in any direction. It is illegal for an opponent to bodycheck another player, and “slashing” of an opponent’s stick with deliberate viciousness results in a foul.

The World Games 2022 will feature six versus six lacrosse, which is played by two teams of six players on a field 70 meters long by 36 meters wide. Games are four quarters of eight minutes in length, with a 30-second shot-clock used upon each team’s possession. A tied score at the end of regulation leads to four-minute periods until a goal is scored to determine the winner.
