    Lacrosse Equipment

    By Kim Bovaird (secretary) 08/17/2017, 10:00am EDT

    Hockey And Lacrosse Are Very Similar Sports.

    Hockey players excel in lacrosse and, in turn, they become markedly better hockey players. Both hockey and lacrosse are high tempo, physical team sports that have similar elements to the game. Both sports utilize 5 players and a goalie, three periods and strategy of developing odd-man situations to create scoring opportunities.

    Comparatively, lacrosse is a much less expensive sport than hockey and uses much of the same protective upper body equipment.

    Hockey Players Benefit From Lacrosse By Developing:

    • stick handling creativity
    • creativity in tight areas
    • creativity of fakes, back passes and shots
    • use of both hands
    • reading the play offensively
    • strong, dynamic defensive tactics
    • builds up strength and endurance
    • prevents sport burn-out by playing a new, fast-paced sport
    • increases hand-eye coordination
    • teaches players to be more aware of their surroundings
    • reinforces the importance of quickness and agility around the net
    • leadership skills
    • scoring skills are honed by shooting at smaller targets and picking corners

    The Orangeville Minor Northmen will be hosting a Community Development Field and Box Coaching Clinic, as well as a Comp Intro Combined Field and Box Coaching Clinic on March 25/26/27 at Tony Rose Memorial Sports Centre.  Registration will be through the OLA website.
