[TRAINING CENTER PROGRAM] U.S. Soccer and Nike are partnering this summer to enhance the nation’s premier player identification program, expanding the Training Center Program to add local combines and a national combine.

In an effort to reduce the barriers for the best players to represent the national teams, all Training Center events are free for players.

“The Training Center Program provides our scouting network with more opportunities to evaluate and track the country’s most talented players,” said Director of Scouting Tony Lepore. “Since we launched the program in 2008, our youth national team scouts have worked with youth clubs, associations, ODP programs and other soccer leaders to identify the best local players who should be invited into a session. Performance at these sessions has opened doors at the collegiate, Academy, Youth National Team and professional level for many players.”

Training Center Local Combines are a new addition to the Training Center Program. Each Local Combine includes five training sessions conducted by a member of U.S. Soccer’s Scouting Network over three days for the 36 most talented players in a local area.

2013 Schedule of U.S. Soccer Local Combines
Los Angeles Combine – June 7-9 at U.S. Soccer's National Training Center (Carson, Calif.)
Chicago Combine – June 10-11 at Olympic Park (Schaumburg, Ill.)
Dallas Combine – June 14-16 at Ross Stewart Park (Dallas, Texas)
Philadelphia Combine – June 14-16 at YSC (King of Prussia, Pa.)
NY/NJ Combine – July 5-7 at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, N.J.)
Washington, DC Combine – July 8-10 at SAC United Covenant Park (Elliott City, Md.)
San Francisco Combine – Details to come

The National Combine is a premier opportunity for the nation’s top 60 high school age boys to be evaluated by National Team staff and leading scouts from around the country. The five-day National Combine will be held at Nike’s World Headquarters in Portland, Ore., with a format similar to a Youth National Team camp.
