There are lot of challenges for aspiring college soccer players today, especially transfers. This talented and coveted pool of players do not have many ways to showcase themselves. The College Transfer Combine is a necessary platform for players across ALL divisions, including those in the transfer portal, to be seen by coaches and get recruited at a LIVE event. Year after year, we are seeing the tremendous impact that these college-ready transfers are making at every level across the country.
“Going to the College Transfer Combine was the best thing that I could have done for my soccer career. Being able to go into an unfamiliar environment and play in front of college coaches is huge. Most players that are LOOKING TO TRANSFER don't get the exposure that they need and it is a perfect place to get that exposure. All the staff is extremely supportive and if it wasn’t for them introducing me to coaches, I may not be BE IN A POSITION TO CONTINUE MY PLAYING CAREER”
