Combines

So it seems that everyone is doing combines these days. DA, ECNL (OE), and now Buckeye has sent a message saying that Combines are permitted anytime, but it isn't a tryout and you can't make any offers...Anyone got any nuggets of wisdom they want to share about all of this? Does this help kids, or hurt kids?

Not sure why it would hurt. It's free and allows players another way to experience what might be best for them. Plus it forces clubs to make sure they do all they can to keep their players happy. I'm all for open competition.

I agree. Most league rules restrict tryouts to a set 2 week period, meaning all clubs must hold tryouts at the same time. Intentionally or not, this favors the clubs and puts the kids at a disadvantage because it makes it difficult, if not impossible, for a kid to tryout for multiple kids.

These combines enable the players to get more exposure. While the clubs involved are not calling these events tryouts, you can bet that if they see a stud show up, they will remain in contact with that player and make her an offer when legally permitted.

So, its good for the kid, and makes things more challenging for the clubs.

Looks CUSA Crew will be in the NPL Great Lakes Division next year and will be having combines at the end of this month too. It will be interesting to see how well these things are attended by kids from other clubs.

It has all become quite silly now. Do they play Fanfare for the Common Wo(Man) at these combines when the troop of club overhead walks out with their clipboards?
