USA Field Hockey coaches name U-16 and U-18 rosters for upcoming European tour

Dozens of high-school aged field hockey athletes are soon set to depart the United States to compete in a European tour.


The Junior U.S. Women’s National Team coaches recently named the U-16 and U18 rosters, which are going to play against Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands later this month. The athletes were selected following a training camp at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.


According to USA Field Hockey, U-16 head coach Tamara Durante said, “As we finalized the selections for our U-16 Junior National Field Hockey team after three intensive training camps, I am excited to continue our training and learning in Europe. Playing top international teams will be a tremendous test for our group.”


Durante is leading the team along with assistants Alan Good, Hannah Prince, and Scott Tupper. They will play four games at HOD Valkenswaard in Valkenswaard, Netherlands, against the U-15 national teams from Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands.
