By the Numbers2

2019 Returners

  • Women’s: Sarah Jacobsohn, Madison Ong, and Pénélope Robert
  • Mixed: Alex Bedard, Elliott Heloir, Julia Bisson, Megan Gillis, and Mika Kurahashi
  • Open: Jakob Brissette

Clubs and Colleges Represented

  • Vancouver Traffic and Red Flag get the distinction of club teams with the most athletes represented with seven.3
  • The West Coast earns another accolade as the UBC women’s team is the most represented college team with a whopping 12 players.
  • The open team features talent from throughout the country, though Montreal Mephisto ends up with the largest contingent at five.

Geographic Diversity

  • BC sends only 19 athletes this year, their fewest in U24 history.
  • Manitoba comes in with 9 players, their lowest since 2013.
  • Ontario has the most athletes on Team Canada U24 squads since 2013 when they sent 32.
  • Quebec sends their largest number in U24 history with 18. Their previous high was 13 in 2015.
  • Besides the big four, three other provinces were represented: Saskatchewan (Madison Ong currently plays in Vancouver with Traffic and UBC), New Brunswick (Martin Gallant currently plays for the University of Ottawa and Ottawa Phoenix), and Nova Scotia (Grant MacDonald plays in Halifax with Red Circus).

The future is bright for Red and White as 14 total players from the 2022 U20 teams will take the field in the UK come July 2023.


  1. Before the rosters were announced, a coaching change was made as Chris Artibello was named head coach with Morgan Hibbert stepping in as an assistant coach along with the previously appointed assistant coach Edward Guo. 

  2. These numbers don’t take into account the 2010 competition as there were only two divisions. 

  3. Alternates were included when calculating the number of players from club teams.
