For those you who may be a little or a lot out of touch with lacrosse these days, there is definitely a big event coming up, Jun 29th – July 9th, that you’ll want to pay attention to!
The Canadian women’s roster is made up of a combination of players with senior national team experience, as well as previous members of the U-19 Canadian women’s team which captured a silver medal in 2019. One of the coaches had this to say about the 2022 team, “This roster brings a ton of World Cup experience and is one of the deepest teams that we have had. I can’t wait to see what this team can accomplish together.”
The coaching staff also has its fair share of veterans, with returning head coach, Scott Teeter, being joined by Canadian legend and Hall of Famer, Gary Gait, who will share the coaching duties, having previously served as the head coach of the Canadian women’s senior team. The coaching staff is rounded out with assistant coaches, Allison Daley (former Team Canada goaltender), Caitlin Watkins (Assistant coach – Syracuse women’s lacrosse), Tami Rayner (Canadian lacrosse alumna), and Jason Levesque (Head coach – St. Bonaventure women’s lacrosse, and former assistant coach with Canadian national men’s teams).
It’s clear that with all of this experience, both on the field and behind the bench, this team is well positioned for success in the upcoming World Championship in Towson, Maryland. While the majority of the players have extensive field lacrosse experience, having played since high school, several of the players started their lacrosse careers much earlier than that.
Three Team Canada players in particular first got into the game when they were just 4 years old! Team Canada attacker Dana Dobbie (Ont.), midfielder Erica Evans (Ont.), and the lone player from BC, midfielder Megan Kinna, all started out playing box lacrosse on boys’ teams when they were just age four. Each one of these players credits their background in the box discipline for their success in field lacrosse.
Erica recently stated, “I do believe my box lacrosse background has really shaped my game in women’s field lacrosse. It has taught me to be tenacious, to be aggressive.”
Each of these players, along with their Canadian teammates, will definitely need to tap into that tenacious and aggressive attitude as they face off against some of the best players in the world this summer! Good luck to our Canadian Women’s Field Lacrosse team in their quest for Gold!!
