Road to Worlds: First Senior Women’s Field Camp Held

Aug. 26, 2021

OTTAWA, ON— From August 13 to 15, 40 of Canada’s top women’s field lacrosse players returned to the field in Oshawa, Ont. These athletes are looking to represent Team Canada at the 2022 Women’s Field Lacrosse World Championship in Towson, Maryland.


The evaluation camp began in the morning of August 13, and featured the first Sixes scrimmages by Team Canada players. 


“It was awesome to be back on the fields after a long break. We had a very talented group of players at camp and the future looks bright!” said Gary Gait, who serves as Lacrosse Canada’s general manager of the women’s field lacrosse program.


Camp was attended by both veteran players and many making their debut, representing the best across Canada.


“There’s nothing better than being reunited with my Canada teammates,” said Dana Dobbie, who will be making her fifth appearance with Team Canada.


“The wait was worth it. We’re hungrier than ever, more skilled with our depth and after getting more time together the sky is the limit for this team. Bring on 2022.”


Four provinces were represented by the forty athletes. A full list of those invited to the evaluation camp can be found at the end of this release.


“It was great to finally get this group back on the lacrosse field. I was very impressed with the talent level from top to bottom,” said coach Scott Teeter.


“There are going to be some tough decisions upon us in the near future.”


Selected athletes will be asked to participate in the USA Lacrosse Fall Classic and Sixes tournaments in October, and the final team will be announced following. The Canadian Women’s Field Lacrosse Team will then travel to Japan in November for training camp and competition.


Lacrosse Canada is excited to see the nation’s best as we prepare for a return to lacrosse on the international stage.


The Women’s World Championship will take place in Maryland, USA from June 29 to July 9, 2022.
