Women’s Roster Announced for FIH Hockey5s World Cup Oman 2024

MUSCAT, Oman – Following the selection camp that took place this past weekend at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Charlotte, N.C., U.S. Women’s National Hockey5s Team Head Coach Rachel Dawson and staff have named the 10-athlete roster that will compete at the inaugural FIH Hockey5s World Cup Oman 2024. The event is slated for later this month, with the women competing from January 24 to 27 in Muscat, Oman.

"Hockey5s is a fast and fun game that challenges athletes to think creatively and respond dynamically to the situations presented on the field," said Dawson. "It requires constant and collective problem-solving, alertness, robustness and precision. The athletes continue to embrace the new format with a desire to discover and drive standards. I look forward to the journey ahead in Oman."

The ten athletes selected will be making history as the first to compete at the inaugural FIH Hockey5s World Cup. The squad blends veteran athletes from the USWNT with emerging talent on the international scene. Five members of the team who finished first at the 2023 Hockey5s Pan American Cup (PAC) have been named to the roster in Lora Clarke (Shaker Heights, Ohio), Jans Croon (Manhattan Beach, Calif.), Charlotte DeVries (Malvern, Pa.), Linnea Gonzales (Bel Air, Md.), and Kealsie Robles (Seaford, Va.).
