SPARKS, Md. — USA Lacrosse has named the men’s and women’s players that will participate in evaluation camps for the new World Lacrosse Sixes discipline during the Lake Placid (N.Y.) Summit Classic from Aug. 2-4.
Sixes is a fast-paced version of the sport played on a smaller field (70 x 36 meters), with fewer players (6 v 6), a condensed game length (four 8-minute quarters) and a 30-second shot clock.
World Lacrosse will continue to use the traditional field game for its world championships, including the 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship, which will be hosted by USA Lacrosse at Towson University next summer. However, Sixes will be the format used for some designated events, including The World Games, a multi-sport Olympic-style event, in Birmingham, Ala., next summer.
