Members of the 2023 Girls U19 National Team huddle during a timeout with their coaches

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 8, 2024) – USA Volleyball is announcing the 20 players on the 2024 U.S. Girls U19 National Team.

Athletes who were born in 2007 or later are eligible for the team. Twelve players from this group will be selected to compete at the Girls U19 NORCECA Continental Championship, July 12-20 in Honduras.

To allow athletes to compete at the USA Volleyball Girls 14-17 Junior National Championship (July 3-11), the premier event for junior girls in the country, there will be two training blocks. All 20 national team athletes will train June 8-13 in Anaheim, Calif., and the 12 who are selected to compete will also train July 8-11 in Colorado Springs.

The U.S. Girls U19 National Team has won the last two U19 Pan American Cup tournaments. Most recently, the Girls U19 Team won the 2023 World Championship, matching the 2018 team that also won gold.

Jamie Morrison, women’s head coach at Texas A&M, will serve as the head coach with assistance from Keegan Cook of Minnesota and Michelle Chatman Smith of League One Volleyball.

Morrison coached the Girls U19 team that won gold at Worlds last year.

“It’s always an honor to represent the United States in competition; however, these opportunities to coach the U19 group are extra special to me,” Morrison said. “It’s a chance to impact the lives of the young women who choose to be a part of this program, [and] to impact their ability to play this game we all love at the international level and hopefully impact the national team at the Olympic level. But more importantly, to help them understand who it is that they are and impact them at the human level.

“I can’t wait to coach this new generation of the U19 National Team and make the athletes who have come before them proud.”

Three athletes from the 2023 Girls U19 National Team return this year: outside hitters Kaci Demaria, Kelly Kinney and Suli Davis. Demaria was on the U19 team that won gold at the 2023 Pan Am Cup, and both she and Kinney were on the 2023 U21 National Team that placed sixth at the World Championship.
