May 30, 2019, 5:31 p.m. (ET)

LANCASTER, Pa. – May 30, 2019 - USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce the athletes that have been selected to compete in the 2019 Young Women’s National Championship (YWNC) which will be held at Spooky Nook Sports, the Home of Hockey, in Lancaster, Pa., from June 14-18. The YWNC is an annual event featuring 144 elite female field hockey athletes, including for the first time the 2019 U.S. U-19 Women’s National Team along with top collegiate and post-collegiate players. Over the spring, select athletes tried out and trained at USA Field Hockey High-Performance Centers throughout the country for an opportunity to earn a spot in the tournament that is the next step on the Olympic Development Pathway. These teams will face off for the prestigious title of national champions and for an opportunity to be selected to the 2020 U.S. U-21 Women’s National Team and U.S. Women’s National Development Team, or a trial for the U.S. Women’s National Team.

“With eight teams split across two balanced pools,” said Phil Edwards, USA Field Hockey’s Senior Manager of Junior High Performance. “This year’s tournament will feature more games that matter and more moments when the chance to play for a medal is on the line. It promises to be a great five days of competition at Spooky Nook Sports.”
USA Field Hockey invites all field hockey enthusiasts to come watch these talented athletes compete. Admission is free.

USA Field Hockey would like to congratulate and wish the following athletes the best of luck throughout the tournament!
