Do you live in Hempstead, NY, and are looking for a new and exciting sport to be a part of? Let us introduce you to The New York Riptide, a professional indoor lacrosse team apart of the National Lacrosse League. The New York Riptide began its lucrative and exhilarating season back in 2019, so they’re a fairly new team. Don’t let that fool you though. This team has already made waves in the NLL and is here to give fans an action-packed season full of exciting lacrosse.
The team plays in the Nassau Coliseum in Nassau County, NY. Made up of 18 players, during a game, five runners take to the field, with one goaltender for a total of six players on the field at a time. They play four quarters, each lasting 15 minutes long.
Indoor lacrosse, also known as box lacrosse, is played overtop the ice hockey rink on green dieter turf carpet. The players play inside the confines of an ice hockey rink, with the glass and rink boards intact. This sport is similar to ice hockey and basketball but differs from regular field lacrosse in one very distinct way. The level of physical contact between players is at a higher level in box lacrosse, making this a genuinely exciting sport for fans to watch.
