Please note that IIJL promotes this event as a U-18 (ie: “under 18”) event, while Israel Box Lacrosse designates our team as U-17 (ie: “17 and under”) to match World Lacrosse regulations.

Athletes must have a 2006-2007 birth year and must hold an Israeli passport or be passport-eligible per Israel’s Law of Return (Jewish parent or grandparent).

As a developing nation, a limited number of players who do not meet the above criteria may compete for Team Israel under IIJL’s dispensation clause.
