The cardiovascular, strength and mental benefits of playing lacrosse are qualities that can have a tremendous positive impact on players. Registration for the 2017 Pasadena Tribe Spring Lacrosse season is now open. Players of all experience levels are welcome. Pasadena Tribe lacrosse serves the entire San Gabriel Valley and surrounding areas. If you have never tried lacrosse, here are some reasons why you should!1. It burns calories! A lacrosse field is 110 yards long and 60 yards wide; running through a field this size is a high-impact aerobic activity. According to the Mayo Clinic, a 160-pound person burns 533 calories per hour performing high-impact aerobics. A lacrosse game typically lasts one to two hours, allowing players to burn hundreds of calories per game. Continuously burning off excess calories is one of the best ways for players to either lose excess weight or keep their present weight under control.2. It increases mental acuity -It takes discipline to play lacrosse, as the tactics and skill development needed take time and persistence to develop. Not only will players develop mental discipline, but they also reap the benefits provided by regular exercise, which has been shown to improve mental performance, mood and performance in school/work.3. It is a full-body strengthening workout – Lacrosse works virtually every major muscle in the body. Swinging a lacrosse stick and throwing a lacrosse ball work muscles in the upper and lower arms. Cradling, a technique used to maintain control of the ball using a lacrosse stick, also requires arm strength and range of motion. The consistent running works the leg muscles. Players bend up and down and from side to side when chasing and catching lacrosse balls and these movements work the core muscles.4. Helps with socialization – Team sports are an excellent way to teach social interaction and how to work with others. Lacrosse teaches teammates to set goals and accomplish those goals with the help of others, a vital real-world skill. Overcoming obstacles within a team is also a good way to develop lifelong friendships.5. Helps with coordination – One area where lacrosse players’ benefit is in the training of fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Catching a small ball in a cupped net, especially in the middle of a game, is much more difficult than it looks. Combine running, jumping and blocking, and you have a recipe for coordination that will benefit players for a lifetime.Registration for the 2017 Pasadena Tribe Spring Lacrosse season is now open.
