SPARKS, Md. — Head coach Jenny Levy and her staff have invited 36 players to a training camp for the U.S women’s national team to be held June 29 through July 1 at USA Lacrosse headquarters. The training camp comes on the heels of a tryout featuring more than 60 players that concluded on June 11.

This is the first of three training camps/competitions for the U.S. women’s team through the remainder of the calendar year. Following this camp, the team will compete at the Fall Classic at USA Lacrosse headquarters from Oct. 14-17. The 2021 calendar wraps up with the team participating in the IWLCA Presidents Cup in Dallas from Nov. 18-21.

Any of the players invited for last week’s tryout will be eligible to be invited to any of the training camps remaining in 2021. 

The U.S. team is building towards the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship, which will be hosted by USA Lacrosse from June 29-July 9, 2022 at Towson University. It’s the first time the event has been held in the United States since 2005 and a record 30 nations scheduled to compete. The U.S. has won the last three world championships (2009, 2013 and 2017).

The U.S. women’s national team trains and plays using best-in-class products provided by Nike (apparel and footwear), Gait (equipment), STX (equipment), Maverik (equipment), Cascade (goalie helmets), Game On (mouth guards), Gilman Gear (goals), Pearl Lacrosse (balls) and DJO (sports braces).

In addition to these partners, Hudl and MedStar Sports Medicine are officials sponsors of the U.S. national team program. Team training is also aided by products from Athletic Republic and Hyperice.
