Netherlands Lacrosse Roster – 2018 FIL Championships

The Netherlands have announced their list of 23-men that will represent the Dutch at the 2018 FIL World Lacrosse Championships this July in Netanya, Israel!

The men in orange have released the list of 23 names that will represent the Netherlands at the 2018 FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Netanya, Israel this July. The Dutch are making a run at their 4th World Games, placing as high as 8th in 2010, following up with 16th in 2014. In 2016, they brought a strong roster to Hungary and came away with a 7th place finish at the European Championships.

Dutch talent has been growing drastically in recent years and nothing is a testament to the progress like having 76 different athletes tryout for a National Team spot at one of six domestically-held camps. From the pool they were able to whittle the list down to 54 players, before making the final cut to 23.

The Netherlands will be led by a coaching staff of all former/current high caliber players. Dutch-born Rick van Kruchten joined the roster in 2017 after serving as an LSM for the National Team from 2010-2016. He joins Coach Taylor Clagett from the United States, a former Notre Dame midfielder and coach with the program since 2015. Also on staff since 2015, Tom Thayer has been on the ground helping to grow the game in the Netherlands after graduating from Susquehanna University.

Moving forward, the Dutch will have three more camps with their National Team roster, an Alumni Game, a weekend tournament, capped off with a scrimmage against a D1 program in June to prepare for Israel.
