Playing Inline Hockey for Team USA

Team USA Womens Inline Hockey

Allison Era is selected to the 2012 USARS Team USA Women's World Inline Hockey team marking her 5th consecutive year under the age of 20. Allison has also been named one of the Alternate Captains for this year's team. The 2012 World Championships will be held in the Bucaramanga Colombia.

 

In 2010, Allie's AIHL Phoenix Dragons Minor line-mate Courtney Orner was also named to the Team USA Women's Inline Hockey team (2009 first alternate).

 

In 2008, Allison Era became the first female player from Arizona to ever make the Team USA Women's World Inline Hockey team. At the age of 15, Allie Era was also the youngest player to ever earn a roster spot on Team USA in 2008 (competition in Dusseldorf, Germany).

 

Allie was still the youngest player in 2009 (competition in Varese, Italy) but added to the team were 2 line-mates from her LA Selects ice hockey team making the team young, unknown, and dangerous. Read more about Allie's hockey life at playslikeagirl.com.
