It is often considered as a rough sport, with slashes and intense checks to the stick and body. Here are the rules for Lacrosse.
Injuries can be prevented by following certain safety measures.

Origin of Lacrosse refers to 1636 where Jesuit Missionary Jean de Brebeuf is the first to document the game of lacrosse.
