As expected, the same staff that coached the U16s last summer will handle this team:

It looks like the committee is in the process of sorting through the applications for open tryouts right now.

It's funny how other countries already have be in planning for future editions.

Five Central American teams competed in the U14 COCABA Championship in El Salvador with Costa Rica and the hosts besting Guatemala, Panama, and Honduras to qualify for a future U15 Centrobasket tournament.

A conservative guess that 6 of last year's gold-medal winning U16 team are locks to make the team leaves the remaining 166 players trying for at most, 6 spots. Dancers at an open audition on Broadway get more of a look than most of these girls will get.

Where does USAB get its money? Because they sure like to waste a lot of it. Paying transportation, room and board for well over 100 young girls who have no chance of making a team. Doing the same for college players who are known to be unavailable for other USAB teams.

Or am I wrong about who pays for this?

They only play for about 30.
