The U.S. Women’s National Team, winner of six world championships, will train in Baltimore for three days in advance of the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup, July 11-20, in Oshawa, Ontario. Team USA will look to defend its 2009 gold medal earned in Prague, Czech Republic, and earn a record seventh world title.

The team will hold five training sessions at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville, Md., over a period of three days from Sunday, June 30, to Tuesday, July 2. Morning sessions on all three days take place from 9-11:30 a.m., with afternoon sessions running from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday and Monday. All sessions are open to the media, with on- and off-site interview opportunities available upon request.

In addition to training, US Lacrosse also will host “An Evening with Team USA,” an intimate fundraising dinner for local parents and youth players at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Johns Hopkins University. The event will provide the local women’s lacrosse community with unique access to the nation’s top players, including local products Amber Falcone (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill), Kelly Berger (Columbia, Md./Hammond), Caitlyn McFadden (Phoenix, Md./Notre Dame Prep/Maryland ‘10), Megan Huether (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep), Ally Carey (Bel Air, Md./John Carroll), Katie Schwarzmann (Sykesville, Md./Century HS/Maryland ‘13) and Kristen Carr (Baltimore, Md./Mercy). Head Coach Ricky Fried (Columbia, Md./Georgetown) will lead the team in its quest for a seventh gold medal.
