Team Israel will be making their fifth appearance at the U-13 World Series of Youth Lacrosse at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Denver, Colorado this summer.
While Israel-based players — from Ashkelon up to Netanya — are being evaluated throughout the 2020 youth lacrosse season, US-based players who are interested in applying for consideration should contact Chris Friedman at email@example.com.
The team will be holding a mandatory four-day training/tryout camp and NCAA Final Four Experience in Philadelphia, from May 22-25, 2020. July’s Championship roster will be confirmed following the training camp.
All players must be born on or after September 1, 2006, and must be considered eligible for Israeli citizenship per Israel’s Law of Return (ie: must have at least one Jewish parent or grandparent). All US-based players who are selected to compete on the team will be required to conduct an equipment drive in support of the development of youth lacrosse in Israel, and are strongly encouraged to participate in a Lacrosse Service Trip to the Jewish State when they reach High School.
Men’s national team stars Zach Pall and Chris Friedman return to Israel’s U-13 staff as Associate Head Coaches. Pall will serve as Offensive Coordinator while Friedman is the team’s Defensive Coordinator. Ian Kadish, a former Amherst assistant coach, is the team’s General Manager and will also assist on the sidelines.
