SPARKS, Md. — Applications to try out for the 2020 U.S. Men’s U19 team are now available. The U19 team, led by head coach Nick Myers, will ultimately represent the United States in the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Men’s U19 World Championship in Limerick, Ireland from July 9-18, 2020.

All applicants must be active US Lacrosse members and per FIL age requirements, their birthdate must fall between Sept. 1, 2000 (under-19 as of Aug. 31 in the year preceding the championship) and July 8, 2004 (at least 16 on the day prior to the championship beginning).

There is a $50 application fee and the application period will remain open through Wednesday, April 24.

Applications will be reviewed by the current U.S. team staff and a committee of college coaches representing every NCAA Division I conference and select media ranking sources. Approximately 100 players will be invited to the opening round of tryouts at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md., from June 21-23.

Following the first round of tryouts, approximately 50 players will be invited to move to the second round of tryouts which will also be held at US Lacrosse from July 12-14.

From there, a 30-man roster will be selected to participate in training weekends in November, January 2020 and June 2020 leading up to the world championship in Ireland next July.

The United States is the only nation to have won the FIL Men’s U19 World Championship, having rallied to beat Canada 13-12 in 2016 on Ryan Conrad’s game-winning goal with just eight seconds remaining. That was the eight straight world championship for the U.S., which also won gold medals in 1988, 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2008 and 2012.

The U.S. men’s national team trains and plays using best-in-class products provided by Nike (apparel and footwear), Cascade (helmets), STX (equipment), Warrior (equipment), SISU Guard (mouthguards), The Pearl by Guardian (balls) and DJO (sports braces).

In addition to these partners, Greenfields and MedStar Sports Medicine are official sponsors of Team USA. Team training is also aided by products from Motive Pure, NormaTec Recovery and Athletic Republic.
