It is a pretty cool sport. My daughter plays field hockey and then started playing Lax in high school locally. Boys and girls games are different. Lost of contact in boys, not so much in girls. I must say that it takes a while to grasp the rules.Almost all the high schools in Chesterfield and Henrico have JV and varsity lacrosse for boys and girls. On the boys' side, it has become a popular alternative to football - generally the kids who wouldn't be starters on the gridrion. The sport is overwhelmingly white. On girls side, lax competes with soccer and field hockey for players - virtually same demographics for all three sports.
