Alyssa Jerome is one of the twelve athletes that were selected from the first phase of the Women's National Team assessment camp to travel to Europe for a five-day tournament in France and Spain.
"This first phase of training is focused on developing our next generation of athletes and assessing where we are globally," said Lisa Thomaidis, head coach, women's national team. "We'll play some of the best teams in the world in this tournament - which will help us set benchmarks - and determine what we need to build upon in phase two."
