One step closer to the USA Field Hockey Junior National Teams — thirty-four athletes from Phila-area clubs and high schools were invited to the USA Field Hockey inaugural Stars and Stripes Elite Tournament and Training Camp, the final tryout leading to the selection for the 2017 U.S. U-17 and U-19 Women’s National Teams. The thirty-four Phila-area athletes comprise nearly half of the 72 players invited. Athletes were selected based on their performance in three recently held USA Field Hockey Events: National Futures Championship, Young Women’s National Championship and Junior National Camp.
