The coaches have access to an online scouting form that they send to the Capital Football Technical Director after watching those games.

After watching the players playing in the NPLY and NPLW, the Head Coach will then invite those short-listed players for training sessions. The Head Coach, in consultation with Capital Football’s Technical Director will finalise the selection of players who would represent Capital Football at NYC.
