From Press Release
Epoch Lacrosse is proud to announce a multi-year partnership/agreement with the Israel Lacrosse Association making them the first National Team on Epoch’s roster. Epoch will be outfitting members of the Israel Men’s National team from head-to-toe with its gear for all FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse) World Championship events including the 2018 Men’s World Championships in Manchester, England.
Members of the Israel Men’s National team will be taking to the field in Epoch Lacrosse’s game-changing Integra Protective line of gloves, shoulder pads and elbow protection. Team Israel will also have Epoch’s highly engineered Hawk Prequel and Sequel heads to choose from with a full complement of Dragonfly shaft geometries when building their sticks. Team Israel will also have Epoch’s new line of equipment bags to store their gear in when traveling.
Lacrosse internationally and especially in Israel has grown by leaps and bounds following the overwhelming success of the team at the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Denver, CO. With success comes notoriety and many decisions that will shape the future of a program. Israel had several equipment offers to choose from but in the end chose Epoch for its dedication to evolving the sport through technology.
“Epoch’s Marketing Team traveled with Team Israel on our Winter Service trip this past December and documented the strong passion that Israelis in the lacrosse community hold for the sport,” said Scott Neiss, Executive Director for Israel Lacrosse. “It was an easy decision for us to make given Epoch’s dedication and commitment to establishing and growing our sport internationally and the brotherhood we felt after spending time with Epoch’s team.”
“We all share a connection, lacrosse,” said James Miceli, founder and principal of Epoch Lacrosse. “The power and excitement of the game is what draws us all into the sport and the stick is the magnet. Everyone at Epoch feels a special responsibility to share our knowledge and passion for lacrosse and teach it to the next generation of players. We are very excited to begin our journey with the Israel Lacrosse Association and hope our equipment will help them achieve their goals and grow the game of lacrosse internationally.”
