The first evaluation camp for the team took place in December with 70 athletes in attendance. After some difficult cuts, 35 players were invited to attend the second evaluation camp that was held from Jan. 11-13. Now 25 players are one step closer to representing Canada on the world stage.
Scott Teeter, who was coach of the Canadian gold-medal winning team in 2015, is head coach again this year.
“I am very excited to name this group of talented athletes through to the next round,” said Teeter. “The talent level of this U-19 group is deeper than it ever has been before, which has led to a ton of difficult decisions. The girls are leaving it all on the field and are making it very tough. With more tough decisions to come, the coaching staff will have to find the right combination to defend our World Championship.”
The last evaluation camp to determine the final roster for the Canadian U-19 Women’s Lacrosse team will take place in June. Please click here to see the full list of 25 players.
