The team was selected from a pool of 75 young women from across the Haudenosaunee territories, which span New York State and Southern Ontario. They have been through two cuts since their first tryout in January 2014, and the Haudenosaunee Head Coach, Regy Thorpe, who was recently promoted to Associate Head Coach for the Syracuse University Women’s Lacrosse program, feels that although the decision was tough, the coaches are confident in the core group of players they have chosen.
“I would first like to say thank you to all the players and their families who have come to our various tryouts and development stages. The pool of players that were competing for the roster spots was very competitive. The future of Haudenosaunee women’s lacrosse looks to be building momentum and it’s a very exciting time to be part of this organization,” said Coach Thorpe at the Final Roster Announcement meeting.
Coach Thorpe expressed his enthusiasm for the Haudenosaunee program. “The coaching staff is extremely excited about our roster that we will be bringing to Scotland. This group of players are committed to each other on and off the field. They are excited to represent their families and communities. The hard work has already started and this group is looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of them.”
The Haudenosaunee Nation will compete at the FIL Under-19 World Championship, July 23-August 1 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
