The team was led by Texas A&M University head coach Joni Taylor with Indiana head coach Teri Moren and Old Dominion University head coach DeLisha Milton-Jones serving as assistants. 

Team USA competed in Group B of the tournament against Colombia, Puerto Rico and El Salvador during the preliminary rounds from June 13-15. USA defeated each team by more than 50 points to go 3-0 and secure the top spot in the group.
