“After a fantastic summer of preparation, we are excited to have selected our team that will represent Canada at Worlds”, said Lisa Thomaidis, Head Coach. “These women have shown tremendous dedication and commitment to our program, and we are excited to go and showcase what we’ve been working towards. We have a great mix of youth and experience on this team.  We have several players who have experience playing at a World Championship and Olympic Games, and others who will be experiencing this level of competition for the first time in their careers.  We are looking forward to a fantastic tournament.”

The announcement comes as Canada prepares to compete against Team USA in an exhibition game on September 15th (Live on ESPN2, 7PM ET), before closing out their pre-World Championship schedule in Logrono, Spain, where the Women will face off against both Cuba and Spain.
