Senior player and rising star Steven Taylor has been appointed captain of the USA U-19 Team. The USACA is proud to announce that many of the players in the U-19 squad are talented individuals who have progressed within the league from the U-15 levels.


The USA National U-19 team was selected after an exhaustive series of regional trials followed by a vigorous Selection Combine which tested players for speed, endurance, strength and cricketing skills. This comprehensive process provided the National Selectors the opportunity to assess technical, tactical, physical and mental strengths of the players in a variety of conditions.
