Towson Hosts World Lacrosse Women's Championship For 2022
Press release from Towson University: Lacrosse fans will have their eyes on TU June 29–July 4 as the campus hosts the 30-team 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship.
Athletes will compete at TU’s elite athletic facilities, including Johnny Unitas Stadium and Tiger Field. Teams will utilize a variety of world-class facilities throughout campus during the week.
The tournament was founded in 1982 and has since been largely dominated by the United
States, which has won eight gold medals—including the last three—and 10 total medals.
TU is a natural location for the tournament as an anchor institution for Greater Baltimore
Fifteen students from Assistant Professor Ari Kim’s Internship in Sport Management class within the Department of Kinesiology will experience working at the lacrosse championship. Kim says her students will assist in event operations and enhance the experience of fans and athletes.
Says Kim, “Although any on-site fieldwork would be valuable—and a must—for those who
pursue their careers in the sports industry, a large-scale international event might
be even more valuable in helping students acquire valuable skills, including communication
and public speaking, by interacting with diverse participants from the world. I also
expect that the connections and professional social networks they will make may help
the students increase career prospects.”
