Forty-Four Players Named to 2021 USA Select U16 & U18 Teams

SPARKS, Md. — Forty-four of the nation’s top high school boys’ lacrosse players have been named to the 2021 USA Select U16 and U18 teams. The players were selected following a national combine at USA Lacrosse headquarters earlier this month that included more than 130 candidates.

The 44 players come from high schools from 15 states and represent 31 different club programs around the nation.

“We’re very excited to announce the players for this year’s USA Select teams,” said Natalie Wills, senior manager of the National Team Development Program. “We had some tremendous talent participate in the tryouts this year, leading to some difficult decisions, but we’re proud to have these players moving forward in the NTDP process and representing us against international competition.”

The USA Select teams will compete against teams from Ontario and the Iroquois Nation during the Brogden Cup in mid-October. The event is run in conjunction with the Fall Classic, which features the U.S. men’s and women’s national teams. 

The National Team Development Program (NTDP) launched in 2019 before being suspended last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program provides high-level training to players, introduces them to the U.S. national team program and offers competitive opportunities.

The National Team Development Program is supported by partners invested in the growth of the sport, including Cascade, Maverik, First Scout, Hudl, NCSA (Next College Student Athlete), Squad Locker & STX.

Here are the 2021 USA Select Men’s Rosters:
