What is your sport: Lacrosse
Lacrosse is Canada’s official national summer sport. Originally played by indigenous people, the sport has been popular since the 1800s. Lacrosse is played by 2 opposing teams with 10 players on each team. A ball is thrown, carried, and caught via the use of a lacrosse stick – a long-handled stick with a net or pouch at the end.
