Women's Soccer to Host College Prep Combine
The combine is designed to give young players wishing to compete at the collegiate level the opportunity to train in a collegiate atmosphere, as well as exposure to college coaches. Participants will be divided into teams and have the opportunity to work with each of the collegiate coaches in group training. They will also participate in small sided games and full sided matches, so that they can display their skill. It also allows the coaches to evaluate each player's strengths and weaknesses with the intent to help the participants improve their game to better prepare them for their collegiate experience. There will also be a session discussing recruiting/eligibility procedures, as well as what young players should do to make that transition as smooth as possible.
