Women’s lacrosse will make its debut in the official competition programme of the World Games 2017! Two teams consisting of twelve players each take part in women’s field lacrosse. They attempt to score by shooting the ball into the goal of its opponent, while preventing the other team from securing the ball and scoring. The ball is kept in play by being carried, thrown, or batted with the crosse, rolled or kicked in any direction, subject to the restrictions laid down in the FIL Rules. The hand may not touch the ball, except by a goalkeeper who is within his goal crease.
