Canadian Lacrosse Association – OTTAWA, ON (January 26, 2017) – The Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) and the senior women’s national team coaching staff are proud to announce the 18-player roster that will represent Canada at this summer’s 2017 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup in Guildford, England.

 

The athletes on the 25-player national training squad were evaluated by the team’s coaching staff during a training camp in Syracuse, New York this past weekend, after which the final selections were made.

 

“We were thrilled with the effort of all 25 training squad athletes and congratulate the 18 named to the final roster that will travel to the World Cup in England,” said women’s field program director and associate head coach Gary Gait. “This team is extremely dynamic and athletic, and will be ready to compete against the best in the world.”

 

This roster announcement brings an end to a lengthy team selection process that began in late 2015 and saw an initial pool of 127 applicants from across the country narrowed down after tryouts in August, at the University of Syracuse, and October, at the Team USA Fall Classic in Baltimore, Maryland.

 

“The tryouts were highly competitive and the final selection process was extremely difficult, but I am confident that we have chosen the best 18 players available,” said head coach Scott Teeter. “These ladies give our senior women’s team program the best chance to improve on our previous international results. We made it to the championship finals in 2013, but now it’s our time to take the next step and bring home the gold medal!”

 

These world-class athletes, many of whom are no strangers to playing on the international stage, will look to guide Canada to its first ever world cup gold medal. The final roster is comprised of seven members of the silver medal winning 2013 world cup team, as well as six familiar faces from Canada’s historic gold medal performance at the 2015 FIL U19 Women’s Field Lacrosse World Championship.

 

“Putting the right combination of players together for the U19 world championship in 2015 played a big part in Canada pulling off one of the biggest upsets in women’s lacrosse history,” stated Team Canada chairman Dean French. “Nobody knows that more than Gary Gait and Scott Teeter, who together with their coaching staff, have invested a lot of time and energy into a selection process that will make a difference for us on the field.” 

 

A leadership group that includes Dana Dobbie, Crysti Foote, and Katie Guy, each of whom have represented Canada for well over a decade, will be looked upon to provide guidance to their younger teammates, most notably 15-year-old Bianca Chevarie and 16-year-old Claire Mills, both of whom are national team rookies.

 

“Our team has a great mix of veteran players and talented youngsters,” added Teeter. “There is a lot of collegiate and international experience on our roster, and I believe that will benefit us greatly.”

 

The players on the final roster, along with two alternates selected from the training squad at the conclusion of the NCAA season, will take part in a final training camp this spring, after which a condensed roster for the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland will be announced.
