FIL 2018

From Niles Miller,

I’m looking for guys who are interested in coming out to Israel tor an unforgettable experience playing lax in the open festival tournament this July. I’m trying to fill my team and my buddies team.
I know this one’s a bit more expensive like 2 or 3 tourneys rolled into one but I think it’s going to be worth it for those who can swing it.

Much appreciated and I hope to see you this summer, possibly for Placid!
Niles (

July 12th-21st.
Netanya, Israel

In addition to the best international action on the planet, we’re also holding a men’s and women’s festival tournament, and everyone is invited!

If you are interested in participating, please read the details below, and please forward this email to all your buddies and teammates! We will be creating as many teams as we get players for, the more the merrier!


What’s included:

Player fee for 7 full games over 8 days
11 nights lodging in hotel (check in 7/11 check out 7/22)
3 piece uniform kit (shorts, pinnie, shooter shirt)
1 Full Event Pass to ALL World Championship Games ($250 value)
1 Shuttle Pass
Daily Breakfast (at hotel – $110 value)
Pool access (hotel)

Total = $1000 USD

Transportation to/from the airport (only valid July 11th and July 22nd). Otherwise, public transport is simple and reliable for less than $10.

This comes out to be less than $100 USD per day, and I’m VERY proud of how affordable we’ve been able to make this. If you are not familiar with Israel, Netanya is a booming Summer vacation spot located on the Mediterranean Sea and for us to have such inexpensive lodging is awesome!

The only additional things that the player (you) will be responsible for paying for out of pocket for will be:




The men’s and women’s festivals will run from the 13th to the 20th of July. Teams will have 7 games over 8 days. Games will be four 15 minute quarters with running time. It will be HOT out – so one full game per day is PERFECT! (plenty of time for drinks and beach and lax)

Hotel: We will be staying in one of the hotels associated with the World Championships. The hotel will have pool access and breakfast will be included!

Below I will include the link to officially sign up and register. Once you are registered with all of your information, either Seth Mahler or Brian Witmer will send you an individual invoice that you can pay by credit card.

The sooner you register, the better!
The sooner you book flights, the cheaper!

This festival tournament is a little more expensive than the tournaments you and I are used to playing in (like 2 or 3 tournaments in one). We understand that, and have tried to build the most value for your dollar. These World Championships will have the MOST NATIONS playing that the FIL has ever had or will ever have because starting in 2022, not every nation will qualify for the World Championships.

THIS is the big one! Israel, on the beach, in July! The biggest international lacrosse tournament there ever was! Mixing it up with laxers from all over the world. Great games! Great experience! Great times!

THIS is the one you CAN’T MISS!
