SPARKS, Md. — U.S. head coach Jenny Levy has announced that 27 players that will represent the United States women’s national team in the 2019 Fall Classic.

The U.S. women’s team, the reigning world champions, will face 2017 silver medalist Canada in the opening day of the three-day event at US Lacrosse on Friday, Oct. 18. On Saturday, Oct. 19, the U.S. takes on reigning NCAA champion Maryland and on Sunday, Oct. 20, the U.S. and Canada will play an exhibition using the trial rules developed by World Lacrosse.

“For us to play at home against Canada, to hopefully get a big crowd out on that Friday night especially, will be great,” Levy said. “The U.S.-Canada competition, the rivalry is second to none.”

Advance tickets for the Fall Classic, which also features the U.S. men’s national team, Canada’s men’s national team and the University of Virginia men’s team are just $18 daily or $30 for a weekend pass that provides access to all six games at US Lacrosse on Friday and Saturday.

Since taking over the U.S. women’s team program in November 2017, Levy has had five previous training opportunities with the team, bringing in 57 players to the various events. The roster for Fall Classic includes 10 players that have won at least one world championship with the U.S. team and four Tewaaraton Award winners: Sam Apuzzo (2018), Taylor Cummings (2014-15-16), Katie Haus (2012-13) and Megan Taylor (2019).

The U.S. women’s program has won three straight World Lacrosse championships — 2009, 2013 and 2017 — and eight of the 10 world championships since the event began in 1982. The U.S. also won the inaugural lacrosse competition at the World Games in Poland in 2017.

The United States will host both events in 2021 with US Lacrosse hosting the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship at Towson University, followed by The World Games, a multi-sport event similar in nature to the Olympics, in Birmingham, Ala.

“Growing the game is not just U.S.-focused. It’s got to be everyone together,” Levy said. “How do we position the 2021 world games as a springboard for what we’re trying to do in 2028 with the Olympics?”

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), Pearl Lacrosse (balls) and DJO (sports braces).

In addition to these partners, Greenfields, Hudl, MedStar Sports Medicine and Sports Performance Tracking are official sponsors of the U.S. national team program. Team training is also aided by products from Motive Pure, NormaTec Recovery and Athletic Republic.
