Team USA Vlog Recaps U19 Women's Team Tryouts

SPARKS, Md. — US Lacrosse welcomed more than 100 girls to Tierney Field here last weekend to try out for the 2019 U.S. women’s under-19 training team, which was released Sunday after the last session.

The US Lacrosse communications staff covered the tryouts, which marked a homecoming of sorts for head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller. The longtime coach at Northwestern played on three U.S. World Cup teams, earning Federation of International Lacrosse All-World Team honors in 2005 and helping the Americans win the cup in 1997 and 2005.

“For me, it’s a just a real honor to be a part of the U.S. program again,” Amonte Hiller said in this edition of “Team USA: The Vlog.” “I really cherished my time, and there’s really nothing like being a part of something where you can represent your country.”

Check out a behind-the-scenes look at the tryout weekend, presented by US Lacrosse video team staffers Mike Wallin and Mason Perricone.

The 36-player U.S. training team will participate in the Team USA Fall Classic, Oct. 5-8 at Tierney Field. Event details will be announced later. Follow the team on social media @US Lacrosse and @USAWLAX.

The FIL Women’s U19 World Championship is set for Aug. 1-10, 2019, in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.

The U.S. women’s national team trains and plays using best-in-class products provided by Nike (apparel and footwear), Brine (equipment), STX (equipment), SISU Guard (mouthguards) and The Pearl by Guardian (balls). In addition to these partners, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Greenfields, Nationwide and MedStar Sports Medicine are official sponsors of Team USA. Team training is aided by products from DJO Global, Motive Pure, NormaTec Recovery and Athletic Republic.
