Czech Republic national indoor lacrosse team is one of the national lacrosse teams, which regularly participate in World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. Team consists of amateur players, who are members of Czech box lacrosse league NBLL. A few Canadian players from National Lacrosse League with Czech ancestors, are also members of this team. Box lacrosse seems to be the popular form of lacrosse in Czech Republic, so it's quite clear that they have got better results here than in field lacrosse.
Czechs took part already in 2003, on the first World Indoor Lacrosse Championship ever, held in Canada. They were not the equal competitors there, but since then, they have become the best European box lacrosse national team. In 2007 they still weren't able to get to Semi-finals and finished on 7th place. In 2008, however, Czech Republic was chosen as the host of 2011 FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. Team felt a big responsibility, so they started to prepare themselves. Jim Veltman, one of the greatest lacrosse players of all time, became a Head Coach for this tournament. Czech showed in Prague a plenty of improvements and they were able to beat England in the Quarter-finals. In Semi-finals, they met Iroquois Nationals, but this team was out of their powers. Although they lost to Team USA in Bronze medal game too, they presented themselves as equals and finished as the best European team.
