The U.S. also will carry a 15-player roster to compete in the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland. That event, which will mark lacrosse’s debut as a member of the International World Games Association, starts four days after the World Cup ends. A strong showing for the sport would only help in its quest for IOC recognition. “Everybody talks about being the fi rst to do something,” Fried said. “These are going to be the pioneers if we’re fortunate enough to get into the Olympics one day.” Team USA, Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Japan and Poland will compete in a 10-on-10 format at Olawka Stadium.


The U.S. contingent will include seven players from the 2013 team that won gold at the World Cup in Oshawa, Canada. Two also were members of the 2009 world champion U.S. team.


Canada, considered to be the top contender to dethrone Team USA, also named its 18-player World Cup roster.


And much like the Canadian U19 women’s team that


upset Team USA in 2015, most of the 18 players chosen to the Canadian senior women’s team have been or will be trained in the NCAA ranks.


“Putting the right combination of players together for the U19 world championship in 2015 played a big part in Canada pulling off one of the biggest upsets in women’s lacrosse history,” Team Canada chairman Dean French said.


The U.S. is a seven-time World Cup champion with an all-time record of 52-6-1. USL
