Playing sport for fun

Mr13 plays Modcrosse on a Saturday morning.


Modcrosse is a modified, junior version of the better known Lacrosse. The club he plays with has four under 13 teams and they play against each other. They keep score and play by the rules but there are no sheep stations on offer and no ugly parent syndrome. If a team is short then a player from the other side will swap for the day. The game is basically played because the organising adults really like the sport and the kids enjoy playing. Perhaps because it isn't a mainstream sport it attracts kids and families who are a little less fanatical, I don't know, but it is very pleasant. Sport played for fun!
