Recommend a National Team Player

If you coach youth or high school football athletes who deserve a chance to play with the best, in a non-club program, nominate them for an invitation to a Regional event to learn from top high school coaches, current NCAA coaches and former pro athletes and possibly earn a chance to represent their country on the football field.

The U.S. National Team puts football players and coaches from across the country on the path to becoming U.S National champions.

Players interested in playing on the U.S. National Team have multiple options to try out.


For players in high school, request a nomination to attend a Regional event or attend one of the three-day, position-specific Training Camps to try out for the U.S. National Team. For players really looking to take their skill development to the next level attend both.


Try out at either the Middle School Showcase or at a Regional event in your area. For players really looking for top-level development attending both can happen too!
