WHY: It’s Fun!

Anyone that has played lacrosse can tell you it’s different than any other sport. We look forward to sharing our passion for the Medicine Game with you in this fun and fast paced version of lacrosse.

Game play most resembles that of basketball

5v5: More play time and every player has a larger role on the floor vs 10v10 field lacrosse

Smaller goals + Larger Goalies = Better Finishers

Boards: Balls never go out of bounds, more touches, faster game play, improve your skills faster

Smaller playing field and 30 second Shot Clock: Learn how to properly use space and improve your lacrosse IQ

No Slashing, No Crosschecking: The focus of the league is to improve everyone’s skills and knowledge.

“A Great Check is cheered by both sides, because it’s nice and clean, it’s a part of the game, both combatants come together and boom, there’s nothing dirty about it, it’s respected. There was no slashing. As a matter of fact, if you went out there and deliberately did that you’d almost be shunned, because you don’t do that. This is the creators game” –Delomor Jacobs, Cayuga Faithkeeper, Six Nations Reserve
