2019 is a big year for Ireland Women’s Lacrosse! The Irish women’s senior national team will compete in the 2019 European Championships (18-27 June 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel) and Ireland’s first under-19 women’s national team will compete in the 2019 World U-19 Championships (1-10 August 2019 in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada).
Selection events for these two Irish women’s national teams will be held in both Ireland and the USA in 2018.
To register, players must complete the Ireland Lacrosse Tryout Registration Form. Please designate which event you intend to attend (player-candidates are advised to only attend one event). Players must also be registered and paid members of Ireland Lacrosse (membership is renewable annually) – you can register for Ireland Lacrosse membership through the Ireland Lacrosse Membership Registration Form.
Based on performance at these events, selected players will be invited to Ireland (exact location TBC) to participate in a Final Tryout/Training Camp which will take place 30 November – 2 December (note change of date, this was previously advertised as end of October). Attendance at the Final Tryout/Training Camp is mandatory to be considered for selection for the Irish national team.
