Team USA is made up of women that represent the best the sport of ball hockey has to offer in the United States both on and off the rink. The team competes every two years at the ISBHF World Ball Hockey Championships and on alternating years at the ISBHF Masters World Ball Hockey Championships for players ages 35 and over and the ISBHF Juniors World Ball Hockey Championship for girls under 18.
