Israel Announces 2013 World Cup Roster

from press release

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — The Israel Lacrosse Association has announced their 20-player roster which will compete at the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Women's World Cup; held at the Oshawa Civic Recreation Centre near Toronto, Canada, from July 11-20, 2013. 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 HaYarkon Sportek in Tel Aviv and the Peddie School in Hightstown, NJ, as well as an extensive interview process.

"I had to make some very tough decisions in narrowing down this group to our final 20-player roster," said Israel head coach Lauren Paul Norris. "Taking into consideration on field talent, connection to Israel, and commitment to the organization's missions, I believe that we have put together a very strong squad that will undoubtedly set the stage for the future of women's lacrosse in Israel."

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.
