Every four years the Polocrosse World Cup is hosted by a leading polocrosse playing country. Teams from Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, United Kingdom, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the United States participated in the 2015 World Cup in Durban, South Africa. Players on the U.S. World Cup Team come from all over the country and from a variety of clubs. These select players are the very top of our sport and have trained for many years to reach that level of skill and ability. Three years prior to the World Cup a development squad is formed with potential players who will spend the next 3 years training, practicing and participating in a number of tournaments and exhibitions to get ready and to make the final selection. Only 14 players make the final U.S. team and travel to the World Cup Championships.
In 2014-15 Minnesota Polocrosse had two club members who were on the development squad for the World Cup Team! They did not make the final team but we have high hopes that in the future they will, and we expect there will be more players in the future on the World Cup squad from our growing club!
