This will be the first training weekend for the U.S. U19 team since the Fall Classic in October, which was highlighted by an 18-11 victory over Navy in an exhibition game. The Spring Premiere features six teams — the U.S. senior and U19 teams, along with teams from England, Japan, Fresno State and Stanford. The complete schedule and ticket information will be announced soon.
Amonte Hiller named a 36-player training team after tryouts and August and that group competed during the Fall Classic. Following the event, the roster was trimmed to 30 players, but the coaching staff has added four additional players for Spring Premiere that competed in the August tryouts.
“One of the things our staff did was evaluate talent from the college pool this fall,” said Amonte Hiller. “We talked to coaches, saw them play and watched tape. We decided if players emerged from the tryout pool, we would consider giving them a second shot.”
Joining the team for the Spring Premiere will be a pair of freshman from Syracuse, Megan Carney and Sarah Cooper, and one each from Colorado (Charlie Rudy) and Northwestern (Isabelle Scane).
The U.S. is building towards next summer’s Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Women’s U19 World Championship, which will be held Aug. 1-10, 2019 in Peterborough, Canada.
The United States has won four of the six previous FIL Women’s U19 championships held (1999, 2003, 2007, 2011) while Australia (1995) and Canada (2015) have each won once.
The U.S. women’s national team trains and plays using best-in-class products provided by Nike (apparel and footwear), Brine (equipment), STX (equipment), SISU Guard (mouthguards), The Pearl by Guardian (balls) and DJO (sports braces).
In addition to these partners, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Greenfields, Nationwide and MedStar Sports Medicine are official sponsors of Team USA. Team training is also aided by products from Motive Pure, NormaTec Recovery and Athletic Republic.
