The Women’s and Men’s national teams are traveling to Spring City, Pennsylvania for the rescheduled Indoor Pan American Cup taking place June 25-27, 2021. Only the tournament champion will earn the right to represent the Pan Americas and advance to the Indoor World Cup, taking place in 2022 in Belgium.
Canada’s Indoor National Teams have been training and preparing for this moment for the past several years. Due to the global pandemic, the preparation and training has been disjointed over the past 18 months but the coaching staff is proud to select two competitive rosters that will look to take down the tournament title in Pennsylvania next week.
Canada’s men’s team will play a double round robin with the U.S. and Argentina setting up a championship game. Due to the travel complications, several Pan American Teams were unable to make the trip. The double round robin will allow each team to gain familiarity before playing the medal match. Argentina, the reigning Pan Am champ is always a threat and USA will be playing on home soil.
Canada’s women’s team will play a full-group round-robin with Uruguay, Guyana, USA and Argentina before moving into the medal rounds. The hosts USA and reigning champs Argentina will provide the stiffest test, but this year’s Canada returns several players from four years ago and is a group that has a bounty of chemistry.
Follow along on the Field Hockey Canada social media and website for results and stories from Pennsylvania next week. Go Canada Go!
