Starting this new league is a bit like starting seven expansion teams. There will be growing pains. "Going back to WUSA days when we started the league, it takes a couple of months for players to really jell and players to really fit," said Freedom coach Jim Gabarra, who coached the Freedom in the WUSA. With only a month to prepare for the season, the team that figures things out the fastest and plays well early will be in the best position to succeed.

Making things even more difficult were the Algarve Cup and the Cyprus Cup, which took place during WPS spring training in early March. Thanks to those tournaments, some teams didn't get their best players into camp until two or three weeks after the preseason began. Breakers coach Tony DiCicco, who was without six likely starters until the middle of March, said, "Every team is kind of in that same situation, but we just have to do the best we can and evolve beyond that. ... It's [important] that we focus on our team and get us to as high a playing level as we can."
