Girls’ lacrosse is a non-contact team field sport.  A girl’s lacrosse team generally has (11) fielders and (1) goalkeeper.  The number of players on the field at once increases as the girls get older.  On offense, the objective is to move the ball down the field using long-handled lacrosse sticks and shoot it into the opposing team’s goal.  On defense, a team uses strategy, checking (in some cases) and body positioning to try to protect its goal and steal the ball away.  In the United States, the official rules for girls’ lacrosse are written and regulated by the US Lacrosse Women’s Division and ratified by the US Lacrosse Youth Council; http://www.uslacrosse.org
