History of Women's Field Lacrosse
Women's Field Lacrosse originated at St.Leonard's School in St. Andrews, Scotland in the early 1890's. The rules governing this game differ from the rules governing both of the men's games. The men's games are characterized by body contact, player substitution, strength and skill. Women's Lacrosse is an intense non-contact sport. It is a sport which requires and develops key athletic abilities including speed, agility and endurance. Excellent physical condition is essential if the game is to be played well.
Women's Field Lacrosse in Saskatchewan
Women's Field Lacrosse has a fairly small following in Saskatchewan. Presently, there are active clubs in only Sturgis and Saskatoon. This is due to the relative obscurity of the game in the general public. This fast and exciting game has great potential to grow in the next decade if more volunteers step forward to initiate clubs/teams in their community.
