U.S. Men's and Women's Rosters Named for Super Sixes Event

By USA Lacrosse Staff

SPARKS, Md. — USA Lacrosse has named the rosters for the U.S. men’s and women’s teams that will compete against Canada and the Iroquois Nationals during the World Lacrosse Super Sixes event on Oct. 23-24 at USA Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md.

Sixes is a fast-paced version of the sport played on a smaller field (70 x 36 meters), with fewer players (6 v 6), a condensed game length (four 8-minute quarters) and a 30-second shot clock. This will be the first international competition for the U.S. teams using this new format.

World Lacrosse will continue to use the traditional field game for its world championships, including the 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship, which will be hosted by USA Lacrosse at Towson University next summer. However, Sixes will be the format used for some designated events, including The World Games, a multi-sport Olympic-style event, in Birmingham, Ala., next summer. 

The World Games were first held in 1981 and feature more than 30 sports and 3,000 athletes competing from around the world in sports not included in the Olympics. The U.S. women won the inaugural lacrosse competition in Poland in 2017 when the event was played under a modified version of the traditional field game. This will be the first time that men’s lacrosse will be included in The World Games and both men’s and women’s lacrosse will use the Sixes discipline.

Here’s the rundown of 12 games scheduled for the weekend:
