WPS

League and team officials making up the upcoming Women's Professional Soccer will meet in September to allot the members of the U.S. national team into seven squads, the WPS announced Tuesday.
The WPS, the U.S. soccer league which is due to start play next spring, consists of seven teams-Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New Jersey/New York, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.
The members of the national team pool will undergo a series of selection process on which team they'll end up with, with the emphasis of making the league as balanced as possible.
Preferences of players and the participating teams will also be considered.
A technical committee of about 15 people will submit recommendations on how the allocation will be done.
The WPS is also considering outside consultants to join team management and coaches in the selection process.
Commissioner Tonya Antonucci, who will give the go-signal in approving the recommendations, said the league is also looking forward to signing a contract with the national team players association.
After the national team members are allocated into their respective squads, the remaining roster slots will be filled by U.S. and international players selected from a series of drafts and tryouts.
