The USA Softball Women’s National Team announced its 15-player roster on Tuesday that will represent the U.S. at the 2022 Pan American Championship in Guatemala City, Guatemala next month.

The squad will take on teams from North, Central and South America Nov. 12-19 with a chance to qualify for the 2024 World Baseball Softball Confederation World Cup.

Seven players will return to the team from the Canada Cup, World Games and Japan All-Star Series rosters from earlier this year. Eight new players named to the roster will make their debuts for Team USA in Guatemala. Team USA head coach Heather Tarr, who also serves as the head softball coach at the University of Washington, returns to lead the team, along with Brian Kolze (Pacific University) and Mike Steuerwald (Gaston College), who will return to Tarr’s staff.
