COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Following the opportunity for evaluation at the two Open Trial Weekends, U.S. Men’s National Team Head Coach Harry Singh and his staff have named the 2022-23 Senior and Development U.S. Men’s National Team rosters.

 

“We finished our men’s senior core selection process last week after tryouts,” said Harry Singh, USMNT Head Coach. “Based on the individual performance, a large pool of players was selected to provide depth to the team. Next year is a very busy calendar for us, including the most important event, the Pan American Games, which will be the qualifying tournament for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.”

 

“Keeping Paris 2024 in mind, we want to see healthy competition and an environment within the squad which can challenge and motivate each athlete to achieve our team goals. Our team’s success is not dependent upon a few top performers, but on every team member to own a piece of the process and get things done!”

 

More than 44 athletes attended either the first Open Trial weekend held in Spring City, Pa. On August 13 or the second Open Trial weekend held in Moorpark, Calif. on September 2 and 5.

 

A well-known name on the senior squad, with the most international experience, is Pat Harris (Moorpark, Calif.), USMNT Assistant Coach, U-21 USMNT Head Coach and Indoor USMNT, who has 160 caps and has been part of the team for the past 22 years.
