Many of the kids are playing lacrosse for the first time. Lacrosse is a fast moving action packed sport that gives the kids great exercise and teaches them teamwork.
Boys lacrosse is a full contact sport. Players wear a helmet, padded gloves, elbow pads, and a combination shoulder pads chest protector. The boys league starts at first grade and goes up to high school.
Girls lacrosse is different than the boys in that there is no contact and the girls do not wear all the protective gear. They do wear eye protection.
If you are interested in having your child participate go to the Martin County Pioneer Lacrosse web site.
