The U.S. National Sled Hockey Team will travel to Ostrava, Czech Republic, to compete in the 2019 Para Sled Hockey World Championship.
The 2019 tournament will introduce a new format that places the top four teams in Group A and the next world ranked teams in Group B. The top two finishers from Group A will earn a quarterfinal bye to the semifinals. The third-place finisher in Group A will face the second-place finisher in Group B while the other quarterfinal game will place Group A's fourth-place team against Group B's top finisher.
Joining the U.S. in Ostrava will be Canada, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Norway, South Korea and Sweden. The U.S. roster for the 2018-19 season was named in July and is led by head coach David Hoff (Bottineau, N.D.).
This is the second time the tournament will take place in Ostrava, which hosted the 2009 event and saw the United States capture its first-ever world championship.
