National Training Facility

The first dedicated lacrosse field in the Middle East.

The Daniel Kraft Family National Lacrosse Center is the only lacrosse-specific facility in all of Europe and the Middle East. Home to the Mack Family Field, it serves as a center for our domestic lacrosse players to experience a higher standard of training.

A Historic Opportunity

“As an emerging sport in Israel, getting onto fields has been an uphill battle for us,” said David Lasday, Israel Lacrosse’s Chief Operating Officer. “We see our new national training center as an historic opportunity to elevate the sport in our region, while also doubling-down on our commitment to Israel’s underserved periphery.”

The project is primarily being funded by private contributions, small and large to greatly enhance the sport of lacrosse in Israel. The Association has secured partial government funding through a sports infrastructure grant in conjunction with the recent Women’s European Championships.

Visit our National Training Facility during one of our many events or join one of our teams or outreach programs to train and play at this historic facility.

 

 

FACILITIES

Not just home to our amazing lacrosse field, The National Training Center also features an NCAA caliber gym with more than enough resources for our athletes to train at the highest levels. We’re also in the process of adding a brand new wall-ball wall generously sponsored in honor of the late Stuart Segal!

 

With other projects in the works, we have plenty of exciting opportunities ahead for the development of the homebase for Israel Lacrosse.

 

 

FROM MUD BOWLS TO NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS

The grass field used prior to the development of the facility regularly hosted “mud bowls” due to winter rains and overuse. Thanks to our incredible community and the generous support of the Dan Kraft and Richard Mack families, Israel Lacrosse players are now able to train like D1 athletes. 

The ILA will soon be headquartered at the new facility.
