2023 Season

Mayo Lacrosse Players, Prospective Players, and Parents

Welcome to the Mayo Boys Lacrosse Page for 2023. 

Why Play Lacrosse?

Lacrosse is a timeless game dating all the way back to the 17th century. Originally known as "stickball," lacrosse was first played by Native American Indians. Stickball events went on for several days bringing in hundreds of thousands of players. Early lacrosse players were said to take on the role of warriors bringing honor to their tribes with a win. These warriors in the United States were mainly found on the east coast. Lacrosse is now considered one of the fastest growing sports throughout the country. Once considered mainly an east coast sport, lacrosse is now soaring in popularity along the west coast as well.

We're going to make a guess that you're probably not a warrior bringing honor to your tribe today so we decided to give you 6 great reasons to play lacrosse! 

HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING

Lacrosse is an intense sport with high levels of activity. Players must have speed and strength to be able to run up and down the field. One of the most beneficial things about the sport is this high level of activity's effect on the body. Playing lacrosse forces the body to burn many extra calories during the high intensity training. When these calories are burned, stored fat is used for energy thus breaking down the fat leading to weight loss. Catching the ball with the lacrosse stick and being able to throw it to the goal with force requires a substantial amount of strength.  No need to hit up your local H.I.I.T center if you play lacrosse.

TEAMWORK BUILDING

Not every team sport necessarily promotes teamwork as much as Lacrosse does. Players strategize, train and score together. Many times friendships on the field transfer to friendships off the field. Many players form deep bonds that actually help them play better in games. Building these relationships on and off the field helps players develop lifelong skills. Teamwork teaches players to learn to cooperate with one another, take responsibility for actions and perform together to reach a higher goal.

FULL BODY WORKOUT

Lacrosse provides a full body workout as players use almost every muscle in the body. Throwing a lacrosse ball and swinging the stick works the arms while constantly running works the legs. Players bend in many different directions to chase the balls working core muscles. Undoubtedly, lacrosse provides an excellent full body work out.

ENDURANCE 

Lacrosse is a fast paced game of agility and strength. The high demand for this strength and speed naturally builds endurance. Players have to run up and down the field following the play. Since the skills of hockey, basketball and soccer are all rolled into sport when it comes to lacrosse, the body is pushed past its limits creating great endurance.

FIELD STRATEGY AND VISION

Working together lacrosse players learn field strategy and vision. Strategizing is a part of any team sport as players find ways to score or play defense. Offensive strategies include never standing still, making sharp quick passes, catching every pass moving towards the ball and always having a man behind the net as a back up. Defensive strategies include forcing the defensive player's move to be lateral, staying low, keeping eyes on the opponent's chest instead of his feet and forcing the player to use their weak hand.

DISCIPLINE

 Any organized sport requires discipline to attend practices, focus on the game and endure rigorous training. Lacrosse teaches through these things as well as winning and losing as a team. A player learns to accept defeat and remain humble in winning. If a player lacks discipline they might find themselves on the bench learning to respect their teammates and the game itself.
