00:01
lacrosse the object of the game is for
00:04
your team to score more goals than the
00:05
opposing team to score a goal a player
00:08
must use his lacrosse stick and shoot
00:10
the ball into the goal the ball must
00:12
completely cross the goal line and the
00:14
shooting player must not step into the
00:15
goal crease for a goal to count goals
00:18
are six foot wide and six foot high and
00:19
the goal crease is 18 feet in diameter
00:22
the field is 110 yards long by 60 yards
00:25
wide and the ghazal located 15 yards in
00:27
at each end of the field the game starts
00:30
with the face-off
00:32
what the team has possession of the ball
00:34
they will try and move the ball towards
00:35
the opposing goalie and try and score
00:37
you can pass the ball directly between
00:39
teammates pass it along the ground to
00:42
itse mates or cradle the ball and run
00:44
with it the idea is set up in good
00:46
position to be able to shoot the ball
00:48
towards the goal the opposing team will
00:50
try and stop you by blocking shots body
00:52
checking or stick checking they will try
00:55
and take the ball away from you so that
00:56
they can score themselves field the
00:58
cross is played with two teams with ten
01:00
plays on the field at any one time
01:02
they consist of one goaltender three
01:04
defenders three midfielders and three
01:07
get sackers the big difference between
01:09
field lacrosse and box lacrosse is that
01:11
in field lacrosse you must keep at least
01:14
four players including the goalie in
01:16
your defensive half of the field and you
01:19
must keep three players in your
01:20
attacking half of the field the three
01:22
midfielders may go anywhere on the field
01:24
they wish another difference is that up
01:26
to four players on each team can use
01:28
along the cross stick the game is played
01:31
in four 15-minute quarters for a total
01:33
playing time of 60 minutes high score at
01:35
the end of time wins just like an ice
01:38
hockey field lacrosse is filled with
01:40
things you can and cannot do should you
01:42
break one of these rules you will serve
01:44
a time penalty leaving your team with
01:46
one less player and your opponents with
01:48
a man advantage the team with a man
01:50
advantage is known as the extra man
01:51
offense or manner this makes it easier
01:54
to score as there is one less player to
01:56
defend the Nets
01:57
it seemed when the man in the penalty
01:59
box is known as man down and usually
02:01
they defend like crazy until the time of
02:03
the penalty expires but like the time of
02:06
penalty depends on the infraction made
02:07
technical fouls such as holding and
02:09
offside results in a 30-second penalty
02:12
personal fouls such as tripping and
02:14
unsportsmanlike conduct results in a 60
02:16
second penalty major files such as using
02:19
illegal equipment and disputing with the
02:21
officials results in a three minute
02:22
penalty so that’s basically field
02:25
lacrosse in a nutshell but there’s a few
02:27
other things that you’ll need to
02:28
understand before playing or go into a
02:29
game for example offsides
02:32
as previously mentioned before you must
02:34
keep at least four plays in your
02:36
defensive half and three plays in your
02:38
attacking half this means that you can
02:40
have a maximum of seven plays in your
02:41
defensive half any more than that and
02:44
the offending player will be called for
02:45
offside and the player sent off for
02:47
thirty Seconds sudden-death overtime
02:50
there are no ties in field lacrosse so
02:52
overtime periods are played to determine
02:54
the winner these periods usually last a
02:56
maximum of five minutes first team to
02:59
score a goal wins substitution there are
03:03
unlimited substitutes in field lacrosse
03:04
and can be made on the fly so long as
03:07
it’s in the designated area shot clock
03:10
in Major League Lacrosse only once you
03:12
take possession of the ball you have 60
03:14
seconds in which to shoot the ball at
03:15
the opposing goal if you haven’t shot
03:17
the ball within 60 seconds the other
03:19
team is awarded the ball two-point gold
03:22
in Major League Lacrosse only if you
03:24
shoot the ball from outside this area
03:26
and it goes in this is worth two goals
03:29
this rule does not apply in any other
03:31
