Tel Aviv joins IPLL; Wolf named head coach

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — Tel Aviv LC has joined the Israel Premier Lacrosse League (IPLL) as the league’s fourth team, and UAlbany Offensive Coordinator Eric Wolf will coach the big-city squad, it was announced today.

Wolf, who has been at the helm of the highest scoring offense at the NCAA D1 level for the last three seasons, is no stranger to Israel Lacrosse; he’s previously served as an assistant coach for the Israel men’s national team at the 2014 World Championships, as well as a coach of the U-19 / U-17 National Developmental Program.

The Premier League, which kicks off its inaugural season in Summer 2015, will be comprised of primarily collegiate players with NCAA eligibility remaining.

Tel Aviv LC is expected to play home games at Wolfson Fields, at the official training facility of Hapoel Tel Aviv.

Premier League athletes will have internship and volunteer opportunities in coaching young lacrosse players in their city, as well as in marketing, public relations and operations for their club. Affordable housing will also be made available to visiting players in the “Lacrosse Embassy” of each city.
