Jamaica’s women’s national lacrosse team are currently at the Women’s Lacrosse World Championship in Towson, Maryland.

The tournament is taking place from June 29 to July 9.

Jamaica will face Wales on July 1, Latvia on July 2 and Germany on July 4 at Tiger Stadium.

President of the Jamaica Lacrosse Association, Calbert Hutchinson, hailed the achievement of the team.

The top two teams from this group will advance to the round of 16 of the competition. The next two will head to the placement stage of the competition.

This is Jamaica’s debut in a women’s senior lacrosse world championship.

Hutchinson said since the inception of the Lacrosse Association, the players have done well internationally.

The local lacrosse body recently gained recognition and membership status with the Jamaica Olympic Association, and the team now has a chance to try and qualify for the 2028 Olympic Games.
