How Many Players are Needed in Lacrosse?

by Anonymous

How many players are required to play lacrosse?

Answer This is a tricky question. And it depends on the type and level of lacrosse. For college mens field lacrosse according to the NCAA rule book 10 players must start a game per side but a team can play with fewer if a team loses a player during the game due to penalty or injury.

For High School and Youth boys/mens field lacrosse each team should start with 10 each, but that number can be lowered as low as 7 per side if both sides agree to play with less.

For Womens/Girls Field Lacrosse 12 players per side is a full team and is typically the number played with. However the rule book states that any number of players up to 12 may be used if agreed by both sides.

Box Lacrosse is played with 6 players per side.

I hope this helps Happy Laxin.
