Personally, I don't know why any girl would hate on boys' lax, or why any boy would hate girls' lax. In girls we need more skill, but if we lack strength then we wouldn't be able to make it through the longer field, get back up after illegal picks, or get a shot passed the goalie. In boys' they need more strength, but if they lack skill then they wouldn't be able to juke a player out, outsmart the defense, or correctly aim one of their crazy shots. Both are sports, but different sports.
Girls lax requires far more skill. In mens, if we get beat we can wail on people with our stick or have a hot slide take them out. In girls lax, if you get beat you better sprint your ass off to get back in front. Girls lax is way harder, requires a lot more of finesse and I respect that. If someone says its a joke because you can't hit, it should be obvious they know nothing of lax.
hey so... personally as a female laxer... I think there's ups and downs to both. I'd rather have a chick stick because I feel more of a challenge to catch and cradle and push myself without harming others but still advancing our team to the goal.. But I also envy guys who can just check in ways that make sense and be more physical. So I think there's pros and cons but at the end of the day it doesn't matter. Lax is lax. and it's awesome.
I feel your pain man. How can girls lacrosse be enjoyable to play with no contact? I mean I love the adrenaline of slamming into another dude's hard, muscled body. On, and off the field. Can I just say, as cliche as it is, I f***ing love a nice flo on a dude! I love hanging with my bros, cause as we all know laxers are the hottest dudes there are. But seriously, you ladies are badass and tough too. Love ya, tho maybe not in that way. Savin all my love for my bros haha ;)
to the person who said girls lax was a joke: its not. we still train, sweat, and work hard. Just cause we don't go slamming into each other every second of a game doesn't mean our sport is any less hard/real. We have tighter pockets, finer rules, and we still play the same sport. Like honestly, what logic goes into the sentence, "Girls lax is fake." none at all..
laxer problem 124 "being black and not having any flow". thats not necessarily true, im black and i have a hightop fade. thats my flow. you just have to change your definition of flow a little bit if youre black
