With all of this chatter about rankings, I have always wondered how the UA All American teams are formed. Aren't they based on the top 50 girls in the Country? Is that based on UA rankings from doing their events or an unbiased evaluation?
The UA All American is a joke and has lost all credibility over the years. Someone who has played in every UA underclass every year since eligible, never even made the watchlist (2 different classes). But yet someone who only played in one underclass tournament made the watchlist. The girl who played every year was obviously good to make the team every year (right?), but isn't good enough to make the watchlist? Seems strange, doesn't it?
Please stop. There are close to 300 players in each division (highlight & command), Just because a player makes one of the regional teams does not make her one of the best 50.
How are you not the "best" if you have played in every hightlight & command team, but aren't good enough for even the UA watchlist?
As the post above stated, there are close to 300 girls who play in the underclass games in each Division. They all can’t make the watch list. I’m not sure why you don’t understand that.
UA has stated that the only way to be on the watchlist is to have played in the UA underclass games. There are players who only played this past year that are on the list over current 5 star 2022's and the only reason they made the UA team is because the coach was their club coach. UA became a complete joke 5 years ago
And with American Select, many of the top girls did not even attend UA. How will they put together a top ranked team without including them. Will be interesting!
