May 6, 2014, Ottawa (ISN) – The Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) has announced its Team Canada roster for the 2014 FIL World Championship taking place in Denver, CO July 10-19.
The Canadian Lacrosse Association has announced the 24 players selected to the Canadian National Men’s Field Lacrosse Team.
Team Canada will compete at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships on July 10-19, 2014 in Denver, Colorado.
Team Canada head coach Randy Mearns (St. Catharines, Canisius University) will lead the effort to claim a third World Championship for Canada.
“When we started this journey in the summer of 2012, we were certain that our player pool would be the most extensive group of players with character, talent, lax IQ, experience and athleticism ever assembled for Canada lacrosse. It indeed was the case. The reality is that determining our final roster was both very challenging and extremely difficult. We have so many players; and that’s a great thing for Canada lacrosse.
As a staff, we adhered to our process: with constant player evaluation and analysis, staff debates and discussion. In the end, we have to make decisions, as tough as they may be, to move to the next stage of our process – the 2014 World Championships.” The 2014 Team Canada roster, with the player’s current professional (MLL/NLL) or college team and minor lacrosse team, is as follows:
