We’re 100 days away from the 2018 FIL World Championships in Netanya, Israel and to celebrate, Croatia has released the list of 23, plus 6 alternates, to represent the country for the first time on the game’s biggest stage. Lacrosse got to Croatia around 2011, with the formation of a governing body in 2013. Although lacrosse is still young in Croatia, that hasn’t slowed down their rapid growth. They’ve developed four clubs in country, and have competed as a National Team in the festival games running alongside 2016’s European Championships.

Led by a staff that has been dedicated to their growth for the long haul, the coaches will rely on familiarity and chemistry to propel the Croatians. The roster is loaded up and you can be sure that they will be well equipped for a strong showing at their first World Championship. They will compete in the Plum Division along with New Zealand and Spain, starting with the latter on Friday, July 13th at 2:45 pm local time.
