Lacrosse is a team sport that may have originated as early as 1100 AD. It is generally a contact sport with a significant amount of body and stick checking and therefore requires padding. The game is played using a small rubber ball and a long handled stick called a crosse with the head of the stick being laced loosely with mesh designed to catch the ball. The object of the game is to score by shooting the rubber ball into the opponent’s goal using the crosse to catch, pass and carry the ball. Lacrosse is mainly played in the US and Canada although there has been documentation of lacrosse throughout European history as well.
When testing his accuracy they made him use an anchor’s bull eyes which is known to be very difficult to hit even in Olympics levels. When testing his accuracy they also used sensors that allows you to find out his release velocity, launch angle, and spin rate. The results for Drew was a perfect 10 out of 10 which is incredible this why he is consider one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now. His results showed that four of his darts he throw hit the center of the bull eyes. It is accurate to say that when Drew throws a pass it is always thrown with consistency with a velocity of 52 miles per hour with a identical six degree launch angle that allows his release to spin at approximately 600 rpm which creates a gyroscopic torque in which gravity tries to pull the spin of the nose downward but the aerodynamic forces of the wind that floats over the ball counter balances each other to keep the ball on target where wobble occurs as the ball spins slightly of the axis the small circle of the nose traces in the air which is what makes his throws accurate.
The materials needed for this experiment will be a ball, a meter long ramp, tape, a protractor, and stopwatch. For the first step you will set up the incline of the ramp at a 10° angle. Then you will mark, with tape, six points on the one meter ramp that are equidistant from one another. Next, using a stopwatch, you will roll the ball from each point three times each. After all the trials are completed for the six distances, find the average time it took the ball to reach the end from each point.
Pucks and Pig Skins There are many different sports which are played at a professional level for one to choose to watch and enjoy. Of the many sports out there the two that claim title to the manliest of sports without a doubt goes to football and hockey. Both sports are jam packed with high energy bone shattering hits. Whether it is a hockey defenseman slamming a center into the ice or a football linebacker sacking a quarterback in the back field, physicality is constant. Although the leagues attempt to ensure player safety with numerous safety equipment regulations, such as helmets, pads, and lengthy lists of illegal plays and moves, numerous players each season receive extreme injuries.
They burned entire villages and by 1882 had nearly caused the wild buffalo to go extinct (Doc. 6). The Massacre at Wounded Knee was particularly brutal. Over one hundred Sioux men, women, and children were slaughtered at the battle. There were usually limited American casualties during battles with the Indians.
* Players can only shoot for goal past the half way line (in the other team’s territory). * Goalie is the only player in the team which can carry a lacrosse racket. * If ball is on the ground, only 2 players from each team can try and pick it up. This can be done with one hand and the player holding the ball has 5 seconds to throw the ball to another player or hit it with his racket.
The Superbowl is an event that sports enthusiasts look forward to and love to attend at least one time in their lives. The combination of the action on the field, the entertainment at halftime, and the unveiling of the year's new commercials bring sports fans and non-sports fans in front of their televisions to witness the three and a half hour spectacle. There are a few reasons to explain why football is the most popular sport in America today. The entertainment value is unmatched compared to other major sports. There are bone crushing tackles, spectacular catches, precise throws, running backs breaking tackles for long gains, and the strength and athletic ability of all positions (except kickers and punters, of course) to make plays for their team.
Lacrosse Sport is the area of contribution. Lacrosse is a team sport; it was originally played with a small rubber ball and a long handled stick it has become a more developed sport and it is now played with a plastic head with a mesh inside on a long metal stick so that you can catch and handle the ball. Lacrosse was developed by the North American Indians; they started playing it as early as the 12th century, then when the French explorers first observed this game and called it “Baggataway” which is French for the stick indicating the primary instrument to play the game. The rules of this game were first written by Dr. George Beers. Lacrosse is a contact sport so that means it requires padding.
