Lacrosse Hits Make you feel like this

Waking up to Chris Tucker after a brutal lacrosse hit

It's happened to all of us before. Maybe it's a ground ball or a defender sliding early, but either way you are caught off-guard and BAM you wake up flat on your back, lacrosse stick nowhere to be seen and the vision of Chris Tucker yelling “You Got Knocked the F*%$ Out”

And we've all been on the other side of those brutal lacrosse hits. The predator, not the prey. A lacrosse ball pops loose, you are 5 feet away and you notice your opponent is clearly not looking your way. Oh, it's on! You throw your lax gloves together, sprint straight ahead, lower your shoulder, and POW! check him right between the numbers. If you're lucky enough, you've got both teams yelling “Yaaardd Saaalee” after a huge lax hit like that.

Official Lacrosse Checks and Lacrosse Hit Rules

Alright, so what constitutes legal lacrosse checks? What about an illegal lacrosse hit? One of the most difficult parts about the best lacrosse hits is they are generally tough to declare legal or illegal! Thanks to eTeamz lax rule resource, we've detailed all of the rules constituting a lacrosse hit and lacrosse checks. Note that these lacrosse hit rules are all pretty standard across all forms of lacrosse, whether you are playing elementary school, high school, college, and even for box lacrosse hits.

The Cross Check

A lacrosse check where one player hits or pushes another player with the portion of their shaft that is between their hands. Just like in hockey. Hold those suckers tight together, otherwise you'll get called!

Lacrosse Cross Check

Cross Checks are illegal and dangerous. Do not use them!

All Illegal Body Checks

  • Hitting someone below the waist or above the shoulders
  • Hitting a player from behind
  • Hitting a player who doesn't have the ball or isn't within 5 feet of a loose ball.
  • Hitting a player who has any part of their body (other than their feet) on the ground
  • Hitting a player without having both hands on your stick
  • Hitting a player by dropping your head and “spearing” them


Using your stick to hit anywhere on your opponent’s body. Poke checks and stick checks can only contact your opponents stick or hands. If you are trying to stick check, but hit the body by accident it will generally not be called as a slash, unless it is violent.


This shouldn't really be called unless it is intentional. Tripping a player in anyway with your body or stick is illegal.

Unnecessary Roughness
A legal lax hit that is considered reckless or violent.
An avoidable lax hit where you proceed to check a player after they have gotten rid of the ball.
