What to know about Sixes Lacrosse:
Instead of the Athletes Unlimited format, the exhibition game will compete in the World Lacrosse Sixes based on a 6v6 format. Sixes is a fast-paced version of the sport that emphasizes tempo with fewer stoppages in play. It is played on a smaller field with fewer players and a condensed game length.
- 6 v. 6
- four, 8-minute quarters
- 30-second shot clock
- Goalies initiate play after goals are scored; draws/face-offs occur only at the start of each quarter
