USA Ultimate announced today the 200 players invited to tryout for the Under-20 National Teams that will represent the United States at the 2020 World Juniors Ultimate Championships in Malmö, Sweden, next July. According to USAU, more than 400 players applied to try out for the two teams that will be looking to defend the gold medals won by their predecessors last summer in Warterloo, Ontario. USAU notes that the final tryout list could change based on invite acceptances.

As has been the case in the past, the rosters will be selected after a split tryout process this fall. An East Coast tryout will be held in North Carolina on November 16-17, with a West Coast tryout scheduled for the following weekend (November 23-24) in California.
