- For Coaches
The U.S. National Team is one family of teams made up of athletes over and under 18 years old. We scout, train, and showcase men and women and help everyone who competes to make a U.S. National Team elevate their game.
The U.S. National Team is part of USA Football High Performance, and athletes are selected from USA Football Qualifying Events. If you have questions on any specific events, please contact email@example.com.
USA Football is looking for the best of the best to join our pool of elite athletes that we will select from for the 2025 Adult and Junior U.S. National Teams.
We are the exclusive selector for the U.S. National Team that competes in IFAF-sanctioned events and our mission is to continue building a pipeline of athletes to increase our talent level and inspire future generations. This is your opportunity to join us in our continuing pursuit of gold on the international stage!

Talented and disciplined athletes will be selected to U.S. National Team Trials, where they will test themselves in individual, 1v1, and 5v5 drills and competitions.
The top 18 athletes for each team will be invited to U.S. National Team Training Camp(s) that will prepare the squads on-and-off the field for their international competition.
The final teams of 12 athletes compete against the world, facing off against IFAF-member nations. Even numbered years feature World Championships. Odd numbered years feature Continental Championships.
