Lacrosse is relatively unknown in the Netherlands, but in North America this team ball sport is hugely popular. American Indian tribes developed the sport to resolve disputes and to prepare soldiers for war. The key elements of lacrosse are speed, action and team spirit. Men's lacrosse is a full-contact sport and all players wear helmets and body protectors. The women’s game is much less physical, so a gum shield is sufficient. In the Netherlands, lacrosse is mainly played by students, so as a beginner you can usually get to the same level as your team mates quite quickly.
