What is Sixes Lacrosse?

World Lacrosse Sixes is an exhilarating, action-packed version of the fastest game on two feet. In May 2021, World Lacrosse introduced the 6v6 version of the game to the world. Recently, the International Olympic Committee granted Full Recognition to World Lacrosse based on the 6v6 format, and the lacrosse community is extremely excited to begin playing this format and hopefully see Sixes in the 2028 Olympics!
