Potential new players can be scouted from all over the country at various events.
Some of these events can include semi pro & pro leagues, youth club & league matches, olympic development programs, and USSF & youth national team events.

Once chosen, players are notified at least 15 days in advance of a camp or match. The final roster is then selected 1 week before the match.
