Head Coach Ricardo Ramirez has selected 36 Women’s U20s for an upcoming preparation camp, June 2-6, hosted in partnership with NSCRO at Neumann University in Aston, PA.

The camp will be used to support selections for the upcoming U20 Women’s Tri Nations Cup in England this July. At the conclusion of camp, the USA U20s will play two matches against the NSCRO All Stars on June 5 and June 6.

Head Coach Ricardo Ramirez said: “The group assembled for this event is very diverse on the field, almost every player plays multiple positions and we are going to allow the players to showcase their abilities. I am excited to see the role(s) every athlete brings to the table.”

“Combining with NSCRO for the event brings more to the camp by allowing the staff to see twice as many players from across the country. The games provide players from both sides the touch of unknown which will be good to see how everyone adapts to the game on the fly.”

Following camp, the USA Under-20s will next assemble for the Tri Nations Cup hosted at the home of Tyrrells Premier 15s side Loughborough Lightning. There, the USA will face England U20s on July 20 and Canada U20s on July 24. A winner will be named on July 28 following the final match between England and Canada.

Broadcast details for the Tri Nations Cup will be updated at a later stage. To support the USA Women’s U20s, click here.
