Team profile

For the U.S. women’s national team 2009 was a year of transition, evaluation and qualifying for two major events in 2010. All three areas were a success as the squad builds for the future and climbs toward qualification for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Hugh McCutcheon, who led the U.S. men to the gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games, transitioned well into becoming the coach for the women’s team, his first experience leading a female squad. He used the first year of the 2012 Olympic quadrennial to evaluate players and implement his system of play to over 50 athletes who trained at the USA National Team Center at some point during 2009.

As part of the second year goals of the quadrennial McCutcheon and his staff will begin to stabilize the roster into a cohesive unit in 2010. The side has already played in two major competitions this year, finishing third in the Pan-American Cup in June, narrowly missing out on a place at the Final Four. However, they followed this up by claiming their third World Grand Prix title in China.

They will be looking to improve on their last outing in the World Championship, where they finished ninth.

Coach profile

Hugh McCutcheon brought with him a lot of experience when he signed up to coach the U.S. women’s team. He had previously coached the men’s team to Olympic gold in 2008, stepping up from the assistant coach role.

The New Zealander has so far taken charge of 32 matches with 18 wins and 14 losses and his crowning achievement to date was the 2010 World Grand Prix triumph in August.
