USA Field Hockey is proud to announce the U-17 and U-19 Junior National Team rosters for the upcoming Belgium tour scheduled for April 4 - 10. Both squads will be competing against a premier Holland club as well as traveling to Belgium for four matches for more elite competition. The U-19 team will be coached by Ainslee Lamb and Tamara Durante while the U-17 team will be coached by Kristen Holmes-Winn and Jarred Martin. USA Field Hockey's Chelsea Mitchell will be the tour manager.

"There is no doubt that this group has exceptional talent but what was even more pleasing was the mentality they displayed in the training environment and in our meetings," said Head Coach U17 Kristen Holmes-Winn. "They are engaged, energetic and their love for the game was evident by the smiles they brought to the field each session. We were grateful for the opportunity to train at Spooky Nook Sports while our U.S. Senior and U-21 Teams competed in their respective series. It was a sensational opportunity for these young, aspiring athletes to be so close to their heroes in this sport. The momentum and growth from our training blocks and the inspiration gained from being along side our national teams will no doubt serve as a great foundation for our tour to Belgium."

"The U-19 has had two great training opportunities and I look forward to a great Belgium trip," said U-19 Coach Tracey Fuchs. "They have had a tremendous opportunity not only to train at Spooky Nook, but also to cheer on Team USA in their series against Argentina and the U21 games against Canada. This is a very talented young group and I look forward to positive results in Belgium."
