l Polocrosse consists of two teams of three players who compete for the possession of a ball in order to score goals. The ball is picked up off the ground and carried by the players in racquets consisting of a handle with a net on the end.
Players tackle each other by using their racquet to knock the ball out of their opponents' racquets. Goals are scored by shooting the ball between two goal posts, with one set positioned at each end of the pitch.
