The six members of the 2013 World Championships squad, plus the two World alternates, retained their spots on the national team. The remaining seven spots were determined based on the following criteria: the top two ranked all-around athletes who are not already on the senior national team; two based on the National Team Points System; two athletes selected by the Men's Program Committee; and one selected by the national team coordinator.
