Israel U-13 Readies for World Series of Youth Lacrosse

The World Series of Youth Lacrosse is the premier youth lacrosse event in the world and is traditionally held July 1-4.

Team Israel will be making their fifth appearance at the U-13 World Series of Youth Lacrosse this summer.

The Team

Team Israel will be competing in the U-13 World Series of Youth Lacrosse in Denver, Colorado for the fifth consecutive year. The tournament has a World Championship atmosphere, with games at first-class venues such as Dick’s Sporting Good Park and University of Denver’s Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.

The tournament was founded by Jake Steinfeld, the founder of Major League Lacrosse, with the goal of providing youth players with the ultimate lacrosse experience. Players will have an unparalleled few days of lacrosse and other activities during which they will be the stars of the game. The atmosphere will be fun and competitive with a little bit of education thrown into the mix.

Our team, which will feature both Israeli players and US-based Jewish heritage players, will hold a training camp in conjunction with the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Final Four in Philadelphia from May 22-25, 2020 (Memorial Day weekend). 

Train with the Best

Our U-13 team provides a unique opportunity to represent our country, engage with Judaism in a fun and exciting way, and grow relationships with other Jewish Lacrosse players. This is a fantastic opportunity to play against the best competition out there while also being coached by Israel men’s national team athletes.
