Serbian Lacrosse Ready To Make a Showing at WILC 2015
Mark Donahue, Editor LaxAllStars.com

Serbia plans to move forward with competing in the 2015 WILC, now with Edmonton Outlaws owner Stu Sterparn as the head coach and Durham Turfdogs GM Jonas Derks as his assistant.
Experienced coaches aren’t the only thing positive addition to the Serbian lacrosse indoor national team, NLL superstars Ilija and Alex Gajic along with Nik Bilic are joing the roster to help lead the young Serbian team.

Recently while the Gajic brothers were visiting where their mother grew up in Serbia, the were able to connect with the local lacrosse scene. Having not brought their equipment, the were surprised to see how quickly they could pull gear together so they could hop in a game. Having spoken with Ilija about the experience, you could tell he was humbled and inspired by the passion of the Serbian nationals to improve at the sport he grew up loving.

We will catch up more with the Serbian indoor national team as September draws near. As I mentioned earlier, the best way to support their trip to Syracuse is by donating to their GoFundMe page (www.gofundme.com/fzwtw8).
