True Lacrosse's Ireland World Festival Team

True Lacrosse is thrilled to announce that in Summer 2020, we will be taking a U19 team to Limerick, Ireland to compete in the 2020 World Festival Tournament, the novice event run alongside the World Lacrosse Men's U19 World Championship!

The True U19 International Team roster will be comprised of boys from any of True Lacrosse's 16 member states. As proclaimed by the World Festival Tournament Director, players are eligible to be rostered if they are born on/after January 2, 2001.

This trip will be a combination of both lacrosse and cultural experiences.  True U19 International will compete at the highest level against U19 teams from all over the world -- other teams currently registered come from countries such as Ireland, Germany, China, Turkey, England and more! The team will also be able to watch both qualifying the games and the World Lacrosse Men's U19 World Championship game.  Simultaneously, players will have the opportunity to explore the beautiful, culturally rich country of Ireland -- excursions such as Cliffs of Moher, historic Limerick and Galway! For more information and a specific schedule outline (subject to change), please see documents below.

Who is Eligible?
Any current member of a True Lacrosse Boys Program who was born on/after January 2, 2001 is eligible. We will have a 24-man roster.

Trip Dates
July 12 - 19, 2020

Can I still play for my True program?
Yes! Similar to True National, rostering on the True U19 International Team will not disqualify you from playing with your normal program.  However, you will be abroad July 12 - 19, 2020 and must therefore miss any tournaments/events your team has on those dates.

Parents Attending & Chaperones
Parents are welcome to attend, but will be responsible for their own trip logistics. However, the team will be chaperoned with 3 True Lacrosse Coaches & Personnel, and 1 WorldStrides Representative, so parents are not required to attend.

Do I need a passport?
Yes, you will need a valid passport issued by the United States of America that does not expire before September 2020.

College Credit
All players who attend are eligible to receive up to 3 college credits.
