LANCASTER, Pa. - June 23, 2016 - USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce the regional team rosters for the 2016 Young Women’s National Championship (YWNC) which will be held at the Home of Hockey at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster County, Pa. from June 28 - July 2. The YWNC is an annual event featuring the most elite female field hockey athletes in the country, including top collegiate and post-collegiate players. Over the spring, select athletes tried out and trained at regional USA Field Hockey High Performance sites throughout the country for an opportunity to earn a roster position. These teams will face off for the prestigious title of national champions and for an opportunity to be selected to the U.S. U-21 Women's National Team.

Janneke Schopman, USA Field Hockey Junior High Performance Head Coach, selected the coaches for the YWNC as players were selected by USA Field Hockey’s Selection Team. All high school graduates who are USA Field Hockey Members were eligible to tryout for a chance to make a Young Women’s National Championship team. We invite all field hockey enthusiasts to come watch these talented athletes compete. Admission is free. Click here for a complete schedule.
