Boston Showcase Event

Israel Lacrosse will visit Boston next month, with a set of exhibition games against some of the top teams in the United States highlighting the October 4-6 event in Boston.

The Israel men’s national team will see their first major game action in their training calendar ahead of the 2020 European Championships in Wrocław, Poland.

Israel takes on a pair of D1 opponents on the weekend, visiting Boston University on Saturday and Brown on Sunday, after a Friday practice and clinic at Harvard.

The weekend also marks the debut of head coach Max Silberlicht, who formally took the reigns of the Israel men in January.

Israel’s Women’s National Team will also see their first game action since winning a Silver Medal at the 2019 European Championships.

The women will practice on Friday before taking on Boston University on Saturday and Bryant on Sunday.

The Israel women are hoping to build more depth ahead of the 2021 IWGA World Games in Birmingham, Alabama, and the 2021 World Championships in Towson, Maryland.

The weekend also features a pair of exhibition games featuring IDC Herzliya at Harvard on Friday and Stonehill College on Saturday.

The event is being held to raise awareness and funds in support of the build-out of Israel’s first dedicated lacrosse facility.
