2017-18: Rebound and Return to the Postseason


After a disheartening 0-6-0 start to its campaign, Team America bounced back in a big way—closing out the regular season with a 9-4-1 record to finish in third place with 19 points and earn the franchise's second postseason berth. The playoff run was highlighted by the team's first-ever postseason victory (7-4 over the No. 4 Chiefs) and a third place finish in the round robin.

Four new faces joined the team in 2017-18 and each made an immediate impact, led by forwards Noah Sundberg and Sean Keane who finished the year No. 2 and 3 in goal-scoring and No. 2 and 5 in point-scoring, respectively. Captain America Justin Schwechter led the squad in all three major offensive categories for the second-straight season, including a team single season record 19 assists. Overall, 13 players finished with double digit point totals—the most in team history.

2015-16: An Emerging Contender


After a winless inaugural season, Team America turned the ship around in 2015-16, thanks in large part to a number of new additions. The World Police's roster featured nine new players, all of which made significant contributions. Team America went 14-4-2-0 and was in first place from day one until the last day of the season, when the Miners nipped them by one point for the regular season title.

During the regular season, the World Police boasted the league's most prolific offense, scoring 121 goals (6.05 per game). An impressive seven players averaged a point per game or better on the season.

Team America made the first postseason appearance in team history as the No. 2 seed. The World Police went 0-2-1-0 in the playoffs, finishing in fourth place.
