i tried it once in 7th grade in the summer at a clinic. i really like it, but i never tried it because i was afraid of embarassing myself... i did however play attack which i really liked, but middie i couldnt handle because i have asthma and its too much running. i never tried defense, although i should hve because i think i would have liked it alot better. i still want to play but i dont know if i can get into it. im really bad with self confidence..

Thats how i was but once you get it then its easy, and if you have asthma defense would be good 4u cuz you do minimal running and u get to beat the living s*** out of the attack

You don't know too much about lax, Bob. Defense always works more than the offense. If you're just using your stick to play defense, you're playing it the wrong way. Also, defense is a reactionary/catch-up position where you have to work after seeing where the offense is going. That takes a ton more energy than playing attack.

If you want a position with no running play goalie.

I wont play any sports. WEll aside from paintball an dplaying around with friends. I see no point in getting yelled at by a coach (and oyu cant unleash on him or your off the team), wasting hours of your week where you could be with friends at practice, and much more.

I work out on my own, I play paintball on my own, and I play any other sports on my own. On my own schedule.

Well....it won't let me quote you and type because it says that my message is too short. (but its wayyy over 4 characters). So here it goes

1. Yes it can be very expensive.
2. Helmet, mouthguard, chest protector/shoulder/arm pads, elbow pads, gloves, cup, stick (head and shaft).
3. I only play at school. I don't know any other places.
4. Practice cradling, 1 vs. 1's, and running.

I wanted to try this year, but i didnt get cleared for contacts sports after getting injured during football season.

For some reason i can cradle, even though ive never played before, but i cant do anything fancy.

Also i dont know if ill be playing next year, because i wouldnt want to start out on a varsity sport and i dont want to look like a douche.
