USA Basketball is excited to announce the open application trials process for the 2020 USA Women's U17 World Cup Team. The 2020 USA U17 World Cup Team Trials will include an application process in addition to an invitation component. The USA Basketball Developmental National Team Committee is responsible for all facets of trials and team selection.

Due to space limitations, a maximum of 115 applicant athletes will be permitted to attend the trials, as determined by the committee.
