LacrosseBook - 2017
An ancient sport of an ancient people, lacrosse has been played in North America for centuries. Part of the ritual of their lives and cultures, lacrosse was a sport practiced more so than played by the native people of eastern Canada and the North Eastern United States. European settlers were fascinated by the game, and over the centuries, it evolved to the sport with modern rules and modern equipment that is played in high schools and colleges across North America today. Lacrosse is played predominantly in the colleges of the northeast, but this is changing as its popularity grows and the game spreads. Lacrosse is also a popular women's sport, with more than 100 sanctioned Division I programs. Each book in the Inside the World of Sports series takes you from the very beginning of a sport to a look at its future. Inside these pages, learn more about lacrosse's greatest moments, iconic athletes, and what the future holds for the game.
