On Friday, USA Ultimate released the three rosters for the Under-20 USA National Teams that will compete at the 2024 World Juniors Ultimate Championships in Birmingham, England in late July of 2024. With the US adding a mixed division team for the first time, 72 players — three rosters of 24 players each — were selected from the 100 female-matching and 100 male-matching players that received tryout invites. For more on tryouts, check out our coverage of West coast tryout and top performing players.

Four players return after playing for the 2022 team, and all four are playing the women’s division team: Bella Russell, Grace Maroon, Rachel Chang, and Chloe Hakimi. They bring gold-medal experience from Poland.1
