Ellis has named 25 players to a training camp set before the 2017 SheBelieves Cup. This leaves open the possibility the roster for SheBelieves might be somewhat smaller as high school junior Brianna Pinto might not be on hand for the Cup.

Ellis angered some by leaving Megan Rapinoe and Kealia Ohai off her roster.
