SPARKS, Md. – Head coach Shawn Nadelen has announced the 77 players invited to a three-day tryout for the 2025 U.S. Men’s U20 National Team. The tryout will be held at USA Lacrosse headquarters from June 28-30.

The tryouts are the first step towards finalizing the roster that will represent the United States in the World Lacrosse Men’s U20 Championship next summer in Seoguipo, South Korea on Jeju Island from Aug. 14-25, 2025. Players must have been born between Sept. 1, 2004 and July 17, 2009 to meet the age requirements from World Lacrosse for the event.

The U.S. has won each of the previous nine junior men’s world championships conducted, most recently in 2022 when all-world selections Kenny Brower (D), Graham Bundy Jr. (M), Liam Entenmann (G), C.J. Kirst (M) and Brennan O'Neill (A) led the U21 team (age increased due to COVID postponements) past rival Canada, 12-10, in Limerick, Ireland.

This year’s 77-player tryout pool includes players from high schools from 19 states and 27 colleges and universities. Among the players invited are three USILA All-Americans from the 2024 season: defenseman Shawn Lyght (Notre Dame), goalie Anderson Moore (Georgetown) and faceoff specialist Brady Wambach (North Carolina).

The full list of players invited appears below.
