Parents are welcome to attend all events during the Combine, including the college soccer seminar on Saturday.

A final payment of $90 is due by May TBD (payment must be received by this date, not just mailed). A $25 late fee will be added for any player who has not paid the camp fees in full by May TBD.
The Combine will give college coaches in the region a chance to assess prospective players in both training and competitive situations. Finally, to help you continue your preparation for a playing career in college, be sure to check out the following resources:
