Law Announces Women’s Roster for 2024 Junior Pan American Championship

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Following three selection camps earlier this spring and evaluation at a training camp held this past weekend in Charlotte, N.C., U.S. U-21 Women’s National Team Head Coach Allan Law has named the 18-athlete roster that will compete at the women’s 2024 Junior Pan American Championship (JPAC). Taking place July 2 to 12 at the Tamanawis Park in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, this men’s and women’s event is a qualifier for the 2025 FIH Hockey Junior World Cup (JWC).

"I am pleased to announce the 2024 Junior Pan American Championship roster,” commented Law. “The selection process was challenging, as all 28 athletes trained diligently and embraced our values and high-performance mentality."

“Those not named in the travel roster will serve as non-traveling alternates and continue to train with the squad in preparation for the Junior Pan American Championship. Their continued involvement ensures readiness and maintains a competitive environment within the team. We appreciate the effort and dedication shown by all members of the squad."

Eight athletes who represented USA in both last year’s edition of JPAC and at the 2024 Junior World Cup were renamed to this squad. The returners are Mia Abello (Houston, Texas), Lucy Adams (Andover, Mass.), Olivia Bent-Cole (Philadelphia, Pa.), Jans Croon (Manhattan Beach, Calif.), Ryleigh Heck (Ocean City, N.J.), Josie Hollamon (Delmar, Del.), Daniela Mendez-Trendler (Reistertown, Md.) and Hope Rose (Dauphin, Pa.). The squad will be an almost even split between experienced members and those who will be making their first JPAC appearance.
