Men's Field Lacrosse is played outdoors on a 100m x 55m filed. Teams consist of 10 players of a team roster of 23 players. The team on the field consists of goaltender, attack, midfielders and defense.
Men's Field is very similar to Box in the fundamental skills of passing and catching, and the physical nature of the play. The games differ in the style of play and strategy. There is no controlling shot clock in Men's Field and the game is more strategic and relies more heavily on possession and control of the ball.
Every four years World Lacrosse holds a World Championships at the Junior and Senior levels. Canada is traditionally locked in a battle of supremacy with the United States and Haudenosaunee. Recent years have seen the expansion of the game worldwide.
Women's Field Lacrosse is a quick, free-flowing game which is easy to understand and watch. The game is played on a 100m x 55m field with 10 players aside on the field. The full roster of a Women's Field team is 16-20 players.
Unlike Men's Field or Box Lacrosse, Women's Field is a non-contact sport. There is no aggressive checking with either the stick or the body. This results in a game which has added emphasis on a fast-paced, polished game centred on ball movement.
The Women's Field program is the youngest of our competitive programs.
