  • Women's lacrosse (or girls' lacrosse), sometimes shortened to lax, is a sport with twelve players on the field at a time. Originally played by indigenous peoples of the Americas, the modern women's game was introduced in 1890 at the St Leonard's School in St Andrews, Scotland. The rules of women's lacrosse differ significantly from men's field lacrosse. The object of the game is to use a long-handled stick (known as a crosse or lacrosse stick) to catch, cradle, and pass a solid rubber lacrosse ball in an effort to score by hurling the ball into an opponent's goal. Cradling is when a player moves their wrists and arms in a semi-circular motion to keep the ball in the pocket of the stick's head using centripetal force. The head of the lacrosse stick has a mesh or leather net strung into it that allows the player to hold the ball. Defensively, the object is to keep the opposing team from scoring and to dispossess them of the ball through the use of stick checking and body positioning. The rules of women's lacrosse are different from the men's lacrosse game. Equipment required to play is also different from the men's. In the United States, women are only required to wear eyewear or lacrosse goggles and a mouth guard. Internationally, women are only required to wear a mouthguard, and have the option to play without protective goggles. The stick has restrictions too, as it must be a certain length and the pocket must be shallow enough to show the ball above the side when held at eye level. At the collegiate level in the United States, lacrosse is represented by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which conducts three NCAA Women's Lacrosse Championships, one for each of its competitive divisions, each spring. Internationally, women's lacrosse has a thirty-one-member governing body called the Federation of International Lacrosse, which sponsors the Women's Lacrosse World Cup once every four years. (en)

  • La crosse féminine (women's lacrosse, lax ou wlax) est un sport collectif féminin qui oppose deux équipes de douze joueuses (une gardienne, trois défenseures, cinq milieux de terrain et trois attaquantes) sur un terrain en herbe. Il s'agit de l'une des trois versions majeures de la crosse. La crosse au champ est la première version, codifiée en 1867, la crosse féminine trouve son origine en Écosse dans les années 1890 et la crosse en enclos apparaît dans les années 1930. Les joueuses utilisent une longue crosse pour attraper, porter et se passer une balle en caoutchouc dans l'objectif de la mettre dans le but adverse. Il s'agit d'une sport sans contact et sans mise en échec hormis de gêner ou de taper la crosse de son adversaire avec la sienne pour récupérer la balle. La tête triangulaire de la crosse possède un filet qui permet au joueur de tenir la balle. En plus de cette crosse, les joueurs doivent être revêtus de divers équipements de protection. La crosse féminine est régie tout comme les deux autres versions par la Federation of International Lacrosse qui organise tous les quatre ans la Coupe du monde. Le plus haut niveau se situe dans la National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). (fr)
