The rosters haven't been posted yet. The USA Water Polo website says they are "coming soon." The website has said that for months.

Rosters are online now, just have to click on live stats on the schedule page and you can see the roster for each team. With it only being 1 day up north, it will be interesting to see how many guys will show up for each team.

Do you know if they will stream these games? I seem to remember that last year they did, but could be mistaken

Here are the full rosters. Interesting to see Cal as one of the teams.

If all of the key players show up, I predict that the New York Athletic Club, Olympic Club, and USA University will finish first, second, and third. The NYAC roster is loaded as usual with seven members of the 2016 Olympic team. I have heard that Anthony Daboub (I still think he's our best 2M defender) will miss the National League competition as he recovers from an injury. It's interesting to see Bret Bonanni listed on the NYAC roster. Does anyone know if he is considering playing for the 2020 Olympic team? Is Alex Bowen playing overseas?

Here is a link to the rosters for this weekend's National League games. Bonanni is not on the NYAC roster for this weekend's games. The USA Youth Team is apparently not playing this weekend, probably because the ODP tournament is being played at the same time.

It'll be interesting to see how the University team will do against NYAC and the "veteran" guys. They've got 3 high schoolers and 4/5 guys who are currently college freshman.

Why are USC and Stanford only sending players that are in the USAWP pipeline or due to graduate?

I’d also ask how Cal is able to enter a team. The word had been that in order to get college players involved, they had to be playing on a national team. What’s the story here?

The D1 rule is that athletes may play only with their college team during the academic year unless the 'outside team' is the National team. If their college team enters a tournament, they may play on their college team. If the players all have 'young professional/collegiate athlete' membership, they can play in a USAWP tournament. I don't know whether the college team has to pay a club membership fee to participate - but likely not, as they don't need the facilities insurance coverage for training. That last part just a guess on my part.

So no way to watch these games other than play by play on the FOSH, no live streaming, periscope?

Interesting however, I see several names that aren’t associated with their club/college team or Nat pipeline but D1 players. Also, a team that trains together, play together. Why aren’t the Nat team players a single unit?
