Matt’s International Lacrosse

Matt Popeck grew up in Olney, MD and began playing lacrosse at the Olney Boys and Girls Club. He loved the game, and passionately continued to play through high school. He graduated from Sherwood High School as an All American and made a commitment to play lacrosse for Saint Joseph's University.

This past June he was invited to tryout for the Israeli Mens National Lacrosse Team . Despite there being 100 players, almost all of them 3 to 5 years older than he, Matt was selected to play for the Mens National Team and will compete in the Mens Lacrosse World Championships next July.

Matt is overseas now as a player/coach on the 19 year-old team that will travel throughout Europe until May. Matt and the National Team will then begin preparations for the World Championships.

As an amateur, Matt must rely on fundraising and donations to cover these travel and training expenses. We hope that you will consider donating to help defray these costs. All donations will be forwarded to the Israeli Lacrosse Association , making your donation TAX DEDUCTIBLE! 

You will be helping a former local boys club and high school player play on the world stage and maybe even win a World Championship. Please consider helping.
