Knowing The Game Will Make You Better

A deep understanding of a topic dear to your heart tends to yield better results.

To that end, knowing the finer points of dodging, passing, shooting, or playing defense can obviously make you a better lacrosse player. But to go a lot deeper, and to learn the history of the game? Well that’s something more, and it’s well worth your time to learn as much as you can!

Gordon Corsetti has been researching the roots of the game, and his insights are invaluable. He’s telling us all about the origins of the modern game, where rules come from, and why the game is played the way it is right now. It’s an honest, exhaustive, and entertaining look at our sport through the decades, and I tend to believe that knowing these things can help you enjoy the game more, and get much more out of it.

Check out Gordon’s first post on accounts of the original game and his second post on playing Men’s Lacrosse in 1869 to learn more than ever thought you could. Know the game, and you can excel.
