FIL presents certificate of membership to Croatia



FIL presents certificate of membership and holds clinic in Croatia

TORONTO, ONTARIO—In December of 2015, only five years after lacrosse was introduced as a sport, Croatia became the 53rd member of the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL).

Six months later, FIL development clinicians Rick Mercurio and Bob DeMarco welcomed the Croatian Lacrosse Association (CLA) to the international community once again — this time in a face-to-face ceremony. The event, which tool place on Friday, June 10, in Zagreb, included participation by Croatian media and local government officials.

Accepting the certificate as FIL's 53rd member are (L to R) Dino Mattessich, head coach of the Croatian National Team, Matej Bodul, President of the Croatian Lacrosse Association (CLA) and Milan Colic, Assistant to the Mayor of Zagreb.
While in Croatia, Mercurio and DeMarco conducted a two-day developmental clinic for players from Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia.
