Please note that IIJL promotes this event as a U-21 (ie: “under 21”) event, while Israel Box Lacrosse designates our team as U-20 (ie: “20 and under”) to match World Lacrosse regulations.

Athletes must have a 2003-2007 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.

Tryouts for Israel’s U-20 Team will not be held. If you are interested in competing please e-mail us at info@israelboxlacrosse.com.
