The roster includes eight players who were a part of the U-17 Women's World Cup team that took second place in New Zealand last year. They include captains Amber Brooks and Cloee Colohan, as well as Kristie Mewis, who won the Bronze Ball as the third best player in the tournament, forward Courtney Verloo who scored four times in New Zealand, and Taylor Vancil, who won the Golden Glove as the top keeper during the competition.
