u19 (top)

Ireland Lacrosse will be holding a number of Irish senior men’s national team selection events in 2017 – in New York, Boston and Dublin.  These events will be used to select the Irish men’s senior national team (field) which will compete in the 2018 World Championships in Netanya, Israel (12-21 July 2018), and they will also be used to select the Éire team which will be competing in the ‘Festival’ tournament taking place alongside the World Championships.

To register, players must complete the Ireland Lacrosse Tryout Registration Form.  Please designate which of the three events you intend to attend (player-candidates should only attend one event).

Event Details:

  • Sunday, 25 June 2017, 9am-1pm:                              Suffolk PAL Complex, 700 Furrows Road, Holtsville, New York 11742, USA

  • Saturday, 1 July 2017, 9am-1pm:                             Babson College, 231 Forest Street, Babson Park, Massachusetts 02457-0310, USA

It is recommended that players based outside of Europe attend either (not both) the New York or Boston event, and players based in Ireland and the rest of Europe are advised to attend the Dublin event.  Where a non-European-based player wishes to attend the Dublin event, they should email outlining the reasons why.

Based on performance at these events, selected players will be invited to Dublin to participate in a Final Tryout/Training Camp at the end of October 2017.  Following this, final selection will be made for the 2018 Irish national and Éire teams.  Attendance at the Final Tryout/Training Camp is mandatory to be considered for selection for either the Irish national team or the Éire team.
