  This video was created in the 2012-13 academic year by the Syracuse University School of Sports Management and I would suggest every parent and child who is thinking of playing this sport or has already started, will find this an excellent introduction to the sport.  This sport has a very different history to other team sports in North America.  not only is it the oldest sport in this continent but it's significance extended far beyond being just a sport.
