Key features of lacrosse sixes:

Field Size: The playing field in Lacrosse Sixes is smaller than the standard lacrosse field. 

Team Size: Each team consists of six players, including a goalkeeper. The smaller team size allows for faster-paced gameplay and increased scoring opportunities.

Gameplay: Lacrosse Sixes retains many aspects of traditional lacrosse, such as passing, shooting, and defending. However, the reduced number of players on the field often leads to more open spaces and increased player involvement.

Speed and Intensity: With fewer players and a smaller field, the game becomes faster and more intense. Players must adapt to the increased speed of play and make quick decisions both offensively and defensively.


Goals in Lacrosse Sixes are typically more frequent due to the smaller field and fewer defenders. This can make the game more exciting for players and spectators alike.
