The men of Israel Lacrosse are absolutely operating at the highest of levels right now in Denver, but nonetheless keeping the weight of the turmoil in the Holy Land on their hearts. It’s hard to play lacrosse halfway across the globe when your friends, family and community are always under constant attack from senseless rocket fire.
Thumbing through social media sites, I’ve found a ton of sick international gear to show anyone who hasn’t seen it. We arrive in Denver Tuesday night, so after then we won’t have to turn to social media anymore for sneak peeks!

Israel Premier League teams Ashkelon and Netanya traveled to Ramla to play in an exhibition to Grow The Game and introduce lacrosse to a new audience.
The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are only a Spring season away, and we’re all extremely excited. National teams around the world are preparing to make the trip to Colorado for two weeks (or more in some cases) in July, and that means a lot of training camps, scrimmages, and quite a bit of fundraising!
With the world games on everyone’s mind I’d Like to shift gears a bit an introduce you to some of the players on the Israel Lacrosse Men’s National Team 46-man roster. I am blessed with the opportunity to play lacrosse with so many talented players and more importantly, incredible people. I’d like to start with one of my roommates.
