WUSA Teams Set Rosters

March 24, 2003 - Women's United Soccer Association (WUSA) News Release

ATLANTA (Monday, March 24, 2003) - Each of the Women's United Soccer Association's (WUSA) eight teams cut their rosters to 18 players today, naming their 16-player active roster as well as two reserve players.

All eight teams were required to name their 16-player active roster and two reserve players by 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday, March 24. Any contracted player or first-round draft pick from the 2003 WUSA Draft who did not make their team's roster will automatically become a part of the WUSA waiver process starting tomorrow (Tuesday, March 25). Carolina forward Katie Barnes, who played was the only contracted player who was not named to her team's roster. Barnes will now go through the WUSA waiver process and may be picked up by any teams during the process. If she is not claimed by any team, she will then become unrestricted and may try out with any club she chooses.

WUSA rosters will consist of 20 players during the 2003 season. Each roster will be made up of 16 active roster players, two reserve players and two developmental players. Teams must name their developmental players by March 31.

Featuring the best women's soccer players in the world, WUSA athletes include Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain, Tiffeny Milbrett, Briana Scurry, Kristine Lilly, Julie Foudy and dozens of international stars. Approximately 50 WUSA players will compete in the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup in China in September and October. The eight WUSA teams are the Atlanta Beat, Boston Breakers, Carolina Courage, New York Power, Philadelphia Charge, San Diego Spirit, San Jose CyberRays and the Washington Freedom. The league will kick off its third season April 5, 2003.
