The USA Freedom Women's National Team is proud to announce fifty-four women who have been selected to the 2020 AFL International Cup Training Squad.
Chosen from a group of 125 athletes, including those who attended last month's open camp in Arizona, the members of the Training Squad have secured a spot to the summer invite-only camp in Racine, Wisconsin from August 15-19.
From there, individuals will be selected to travel to Australia for next year's International Cup tournament, the details of which are still to be confirmed by the AFL.
'The coaching staff was very pleased with the pool of talent that we had to pick from to select this group of 50+ women,' said Freedom head coach Christina Licata. 'We are excited to see a ton of new faces in the program as well as the return of USA program stalwarts, who will bring their experience and leadership to the Training Squad.'
In a testament to the growth of women's football across America, the women listed below represent fifteen USAFL clubs, three players who are playing in the VFLW, while one is currently playing in Ireland.
Heartiest congratulations to everyone selected!
