OTTAWA, Ontario — Lacrosse Canada is thrilled to announce the 20 women who will represent Canada at the 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s World Cup in Towson, USA.

The World Cup, which was postponed from 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, will take place in Towson, Maryland, USA from June 29 to July 9, 2022.

It will feature a record 30 teams, an exciting milestone for the global growth of women’s lacrosse. Canada enters the tournament as the No. 2 seed and looks to upgrade the silver medal won at the 2017 World Cup, which was held in Guildford, UK.

It’s been a long road for these athletes, who began the selection process nearly two years ago. The final roster was decided following several identification events in the fall of 2021.

“I am really excited to finally announce this team. It definitely has been a unique process,” said head coach Scott Teeter.

“This roster brings a ton of World Cup experience and is one of the deepest teams that we have had. I can’t wait to see what this team can accomplish together.”

The list includes Dana Dobbie, who will be making her fourth appearance at the Women’s World Cup. 

“I couldn't be more excited to be named amongst this list of women I admire so much on and off the field,” Dobbie said.

“Lacrosse Canada is so special because of those who have come before us and those who will wear this jersey next. It's an honour and the opportunity of a lifetime to represent Canada playing our National Sport and one I'll never take for granted.”

The roster is made of a combination of players with senior national team experience, as well as previous members of the U-19 Canadian women’s team which captured a silver medal in 2019.

“I’m so excited to be able to represent Canada alongside this incredible group of women, and be able to play the game we all love,” said Kaylin Morissette. Morissette will be making her third appearance at the Women’s World Cup and was an assistant coach with the 2019 U-19 women’s team.

“It has been a long and difficult process, but to be able to take the field in Towson, Maryland, with this crew is an unbelievable feeling.”

Full event passes are available now, and the full schedule, as well as streaming information, will be announced once they are available.
