A lacrosse field is 110 yards long and can be from 53 1/3 to 60 yards wide. The goals are 80 yards apart with a playing area of 15 yards behind each goal. The length of the field is divided in half by a center line. An 18 ft. diameter circle is drawn around each goal and is known as the “crease.” A rectangle, 35 yards by 40 yards surrounds each goal area and is known as the “goal area.” An “X” is marked in the center of the field. There is a special substitution area on the sideline, next to the timers table.
