After three days of training from July 24-26 at a site to be announced, the University of Delaware's Bob Carpenter Center will host a doubleheader on July 27 with Australia playing Canada at 5 p.m. followed by the U.S. meeting France. On July 29 Australia and France will meet at 4:30 p.m. followed by a game between the U.S. and Canada featuring six current or former UConn players since Sue Bird, Tina Charles, Maya Moore, Breanna Stewart and Diana Taurasi are members of the U.S. Olympic squad and current UConn guard Kia Nurse is a star on the Canadian team.

On July 31 Canada and France will square off at 1:30 p.m. followed by a game between Australia and the U.S. at Madison Square Garden.
