Male and female Lacrosse have a lot in common. They’re both quick, intense games that rely on physical stamina and special hand-eye coordination. And the main objective, of course, is just the same-to get the little rubber ball into the net as many times as you can.
Sticks and packs are different from each other. Women’s pockets are slightly narrower and require more abilities.
The female baton has no pockets, and the sides are narrower, making it difficult to hold the ball.
Twelve teams instead of eleven. It’s pretty easy. There are more players than men.
Far less physically than that. Women don’t wear any such pads followed by tiny goggles to cover their eyes. This is because the lacrosse of women is much less aggressive with virtually no impulse and no test.
There are various rules. Women’s Lacrosse has a lot of laws about unsafe shoots and firing spaces and stuff that men don’t have.
When it comes to gear, this is the most important difference: male lacrosse allows testing, while female games do not. This ensures that male players face the possibility of being constantly struck or stabbed with sticks.
In the women’s lacrosse, any sort of body check or club inspection that hits the athlete will be penalized, so the equipment threshold is substantially lower. Many female players are allowed to wear goggles and mouth covers, while helmets and protective cushions are reserved for goaltenders.
In the men’s game, the three attackers have to be on the offensive side, the three guards have to be on the defending side, and the three middlemen have to be on the whole pitch. In certain cases, defensemen can reach the field of attack if they remain in the defensive zone.
Of their 12 players, only seven were allowed under the ban line at the end of their attack. This number leapt to the eight players allowed below the line in their defense at the back of the field, simply by the goaltenders.
