The final roster for the 2020 U.S. men’s U19 team is becoming clearer after the latest update by head coach Nick Myers and his staff.
Following the Spring Premiere in San Antonio earlier this month, Myers and the U.S. team staff narrowed the training roster to 24 players, just one above the maximum allowed under World Lacrosse rules. The U19 team won both of its games in San Antonio, beating Team Premiere 17-3 and Japan 14-2.
The U.S. team has a training camp scheduled for early June at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md., and then a brief camp in early July before heading to Limerick, Ireland for the 2020 World Lacrosse Men’s U19 World Championship. Barring any injuries or other circumstances, the staff will make one cut from the current training roster before finalizing the roster for the world championship.
A total of 104 players have participated in the tryout process, which began in June 2019. The team held two tryout weekends at US Lacrosse last summer and competed against Culver Academy and the Hill Academy at Ohio State last November before this month’s Spring Premiere to get to the current 24-player roster. The players on the training roster come from high schools in 10 different states and represent 14 different college programs (enrollment and commitments).
The United States is the only nation to have won the World Lacrosse Men’s U19 Championship, having rallied to beat Canada 13-12 in 2016 on Ryan Conrad’s game-winning goal with just eight seconds remaining. That was the eighth straight world championship for the U.S., which also won gold medals in 1988, 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2008 and 2012.
The U.S. men’s national team trains and plays using best-in-class products provided by Nike (apparel and footwear), Cascade (helmets), Warrior (equipment), SISU Guard (mouthguards), The Pearl by Guardian (balls) and DJO (sports braces).
In addition to these partners, Greenfields, Krossover, MedStar Sports Medicine and Sports Performance Tracking are officials sponsors of Team USA. Team training is also aided by products from Motive Pure, NormaTec Recovery and Athletic Republic.
