History

Selection Process

Women's National Team tryout registration form »
USA Baseball waiver authorization »

In 2014, USA Baseball will utilize a rolling invitation process for the players named to the Women's National Team Program. Up to 38 players will be identified for the 2014 Women's National Team Program through the USA Baseball National Team Identification Series (NTIS), USA Baseball Women's Development Program, regional tryouts, video submission, and by recommendations from scouts, college and high school coaches and the women's baseball community. As players are named to the team, USA Baseball will publicize the announcement(s) through a press release and/or by post to USABaseball.com.

In January, 40 players will be invited to the USA Baseball Women's National Team Development Program. Players will work closely with National Team coaches and staff to strengthen their skills prior to trying out for the Women's National Team later that summer. Based on performance, 12 athletes will be given an invite to the Women's National Team Trials to be held in August.

The primary identification vehicle for the 2014 USA Baseball Women's National Team Program will be through a series of open, regional tryouts to be held around the country in late spring and early summer. From these tryouts, a minimum of 25 players will be invited to the Women's National Team Trials. These tryouts will be free, one-day events run by Women's National Team coaches and staff in an effort to identify the nation's top female baseball players.

Players 16 and under may also qualify for the following calendar year's Women's National Team Program (2015) by competing in the NTIS. The 16-and-under NTIS is held in August and provides USA Baseball with an advanced look at the upcoming class of top players at the 14U, 15U and 16U age levels. Players 16 years of age and younger may register to participate for the NTIS. At the 16-and-under NTIS, USA Baseball Task Force members will identify a minimum of three (3) players for the following season's Women's National Team Program. For 2014, these invitations have already been made based on the 2013 NTIS.

Information contained in this selection process document is subject to change at the sole discretion of USA Baseball and without further notice.
