I could hardly wait to get my lacrosse stick out and start throwing the ball around. It didn’t matter how cold or rainy it would be, we’d be out firing the ball against walls and working on our moves as we played the lacrosse equivalent to road hockey.

The toughness and physical aspect of lacrosse has definitely had an influence on my playing ability in hockey.

John Tavares

Lacrosse is probably the best sport I ever played. I could run 200 yards at a stretch, I could duck between players, I felt free to make plays that suited me best. It wasn’t like football then and basketball today, where coaches tell you what foot to put down.

Lacrosse is fast-paced and I like fast-paced games. It’s demanding physically and has the hardest conditioning of any sport. You are always running if you are not sprinting. It’s the constant movement.
