Fall 2014 Signing Week coverage

israel lacrosseFrom press release

Several standouts from the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tristate region have made the cut as the Israel Lacrosse Association has announced its 38-player roster for the Israel women’s national team which will compete at the 2015 FIL Women’s U-19 World Cup and International Festival of Lacrosse, held in Edinburgh, Scotland, from July 23-Aug. 1.

Israel’s roster is composed of both Israeli players, as well as members of the Jewish diaspora, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL).

The roster was selected after a series of tryouts at Voldenberg Field in Ashkelon, as well as formal evaluations held in conjunction with the Israel U-19 Winter Developmental Program.

“Our staff has been working around the clock to recruit and prepare our first-ever U-19 national team,” said Israel head coach Hannah Deoul, a native of Baltimore who made Aliyah to Ashkelon in October of 2014. “We could not be more excited and confident with the energetic, hard working group we have assembled.”

In conjunction with the Israel Lacrosse Tzedakah Program, each player will be competing in honor of a charity of their choosing. A portion of the national team’s general fundraising efforts has been committed to each charity.
