Phillylacrosse.com, Posted 3/13/22 – From USA Lacrosse Press Release
The 2022 USA Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament, the nation’s oldest and longest-running women’s lacrosse event, is set for May 28-29 at Cedar Lane Regional Park in Bel Air, Md. The event was first held in 1933 and has evolved into one of the premier recruiting events for high school girls’ lacrosse players looking to play at the collegiate level.
Players compete for regional all-star teams that are unaffiliated with their high school or club teams in one of the most geographically-diverse and accessible recruiting events in the sport.
“Our goal is to provide an opportunity for all interested scholastic high school players from grades 9-11 to try out for a regional team, and if selected, the opportunity to be seen by college coaches,” said Caitlin Kelley, director of women’s lacrosse for USA Lacrosse. “We hope the event provides players, who may not have opportunities through club options, a chance to be spotlighted.”
The event was cancelled in 2020 and scaled back in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but a full return to approximately 68 regional teams in expected for 2022. The USA Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament usually features close to 1,500 players from more than 30 states.
Tryouts for the Philly teams will be held April 3 at Germantown Academy.
