Since moving up here I've gotten into it.
A lot of people I work with played in college.

I enjoy it.

Default Re: Lacrosse

Absolutely. I honestly enjoy the game of Lacrosse more than any other. My son has played travel lacrosse for the last five years...just started his fifth. It is by far the fastest growing sport in the country. From both a boys and girls standpoint and the number of college programs is getting ready to explode. The number of kids who have dropped baseball/softball because of how radically slow paced and boring it is and picked up a lax stick is ridiculous. Especially kids who like the contact and non-stop action of sports like football, hockey and basketball...I think five of the 20 kids on my son's team also just got finished up with middle school wrestling as well.

I've been a fan since I was a kid but growing up in SC meant no one I knew played it. That is a thing of the past now. Everyone is playing it now and as I said it is by far the fastest growing sport in the country by a long shot.

The days of only private schools from Baltimore and New York playing are long gone. Places like Colorado, California, Florida, Virginia, NC, Washington, Oregon, Utah, etc. are seeing youth baseball /softball numbers plummet and Lacrosse explode.

Charlotte has a pro team: http://www.charlottehounds.com/ I think the guy who calls Gaffney sports also still calls the Hounds' games.

Limestone College has had a really good team for several years now and has won a couple of national championships. They get most of their players from the Baltimore area.

I could always catch the the ball, but whenever I tried to fling it out, it'd always just drop out.

It's great seeing lacrosse start to take off like it is. I grew up playing it in New Jersey and Virginia. When I moved to VA in the late 80's it was still a club sport in highschool. I think the only thing that has held it back from growing quicker is the cost of equipment just to get started.

I played in high school and last summer I joined a men's team in Columbia. Such a fun sport, and I am glad it has gained popularity over the past decade.

"Up here" its a huge sport. MD, NJ, NY, MA is the place to be for lacrosse. I can remember going to the NCAAs at Bryd Stadium at UMD campus when I was 8. Also went to a high school that was at the time a regional contender year after year.

However I think I played for 2 years..had more interest in baseball.

Default Re: Lacrosse

I coach lacrosse here in Greer. Awesome sport, wish they would have had it when I was in school. I think it appeals to many because of two reasons:
1. it combines soccer, field hockey, softball/baseball, basketball and football (kind of) all into one.
2. For younger players, they may have gotten burnt out on Soccer or other sports and want to try something new, or some were never good enough to make other varsity sports, but since Lacrosse is new, most are still learning and it is something you can pick up pretty quickly.
