SPARKS, Md. — Following three days of intense tryouts featuring nearly 100 of the best women’s lacrosse players in the country, head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller has named 42 players to the 2024 U.S. Women’s U20 Training Team.
“We had an incredible weekend at USA Lacrosse headquarters,” Amonte Hiller said. “The amount of pure talent and passion for the sport made the weekend unforgettable. We’re so excited for the next step on this journey to Hong Kong with this strong group of players.”
The 42 players named to the training team come from high schools from 12 states and the District of Columbia and represent 19 colleges with their current enrollment or commitment.
The U20 training team will be back at USA Lacrosse for a training camp in August and will compete at the USA Lacrosse Fall Classic in October before the final roster is ultimately selected to represent the country at the 2024 World Lacrosse Women’s U20 Championship in Hong Kong, China next summer.
Formerly, a U19 event, World Lacrosse raised the age group to U20 after the 2019 championship in Peterborough, Ontario. Amonte Hiller was the head coach for the 2019 team and helped lead the U.S. to its fifth gold medal in the event. The U.S won the event in 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2019. Australia won the inaugural championship in 1995 and Canada won in 2015 with the U.S. finishing as the runner-up at those two events.
The U.S. women’s national teams train and play using best-in-class products from Nike Lacrosse (apparel and footwear), Enovis (formerly DJO - sports bracing) and game-changing, high-performance equipment from Cascade/Maverik, Gait Lacrosse and STX.
In addition to these partners, Gatorade, MedStar Health, National Center for Safety Initiatives and Stryker are official sponsors of the U.S. national team program. Team training is also aided by products from Athletic Republic.
