SPARKS, Md.Applications to try out for the 2021 U.S. Women’s team are now available. The team, led by head coach Jenny Levy, will represent the United States in the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship from July 7-17, 2021 at Towson University in Towson, Md.

All applicants must be current US Lacrosse members. There is a $50 application fee and the application period will remain open through May 15.

A player identification committee, led by US Lacrosse Women’s High Performance Committee Chair Anne Phillips, will evaluate the nominations and select approximately 72 players to participate in the tryout. The tryout will be held July 29-31, 2020 at the national team’s training center at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md. Tryout invitations will be extended on June 19.

The player identification committee also includes the current U.S. team coaching staff, a past U.S. women’s team coach, a former U.S. team player and a representative from the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League.

Following the tryout, 36 players will be named to the 2021 U.S. women’s training team. Those players will participate in a number of training opportunities over the next year which will ultimately result in a final roster of 18 players competing in the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship.

The United States has won the last three world championships (2009, 2013 and 2017) and has won a record eight World Cups since the championship was first contested in Nottingham, England in 1982.

A record 30 nations are expected to compete in the 2021 championship at Towson University, an event that will be hosted by US Lacrosse. This is the first time the women’s world championship has been held in the United States since 2005. US Lacrosse hosted the championship that summer at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and Jen Adams led Australia to a victory over the U.S. in the gold medal game.
