Introduction To Lacrosse
Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States, thanks to its relentless speed and nail-biting precision plays. Originally a Native American sport resembling aspects of hockey and basketball, lacrosse players don pads, helmets and netted lacrosse sticks to pass and shoot a small rubber ball while the opposing team does everything they can to stop them and make a goal of their own!
This contact sport is an exhilarating way to build strength, cardiovascular endurance, and friendship with teammates. The YMCA is proud to offer several clinics and leagues for players around San Diego to learn and improve their skills.
