Hapoel Galil Elyon (Hebrew: הפועל גליל עליון‎‎) is an Israeli basketball club. The team represents the north-east region of the country – the Upper Galilee, and the Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights. In June 2008, the club was merged with Hapoel Gilboa (who had previously been merged with Hapoel Afula, who regained their independence) to form a new club, Hapoel Gilboa Galil. The team was re-established in 2009.[1]

History[edit]

In 1992–93 the club, then coached by Pini Gershon – became the first club based outside Tel Aviv to have won the Israeli Championship, ending Maccabi Tel Aviv's 23-year winning streak. They also won the State Cup twice, in 1988 and 1992.

Between 1990 and the club's merger in 2008, several of the Israel's most successful basketball players have come through the club, including Nadav Henefeld, Oded Kattash, Doron Sheffer, Gur Shelef, Lior Eliyahu and Sharon Sasson, earning the team the nickname "the Israeli basketball college".
