Junior Teams for 2017 World Championships

We received applications from 53 candidates to compete with Team USA in Hobart, Australia in July 2017. The U19 Men and Ladies and U23 Men teams will start their process of training and selection shortly. Unfortunately we only received two applicants for U23 Ladies. We decided to not continue the process for this team.

We also received applications from excellent candidates for the coaching team. Each team has been assigned a coach and assistant coach(es).
