High School students training with NCE Soccer will have three unique opportunities to impress College Coaches this summer.

Boys and Girls within the NCE Soccer Program will be invited to attend the NCE Soccer College Combine events in June.

Three College Combines will be held at venues in the North Atlantic, New England and New York regions.

They will provide players with a three-hour window of opportunity to impress University and College coaches.

Colleges And Universities Attending


NCE Soccer College Coordinator Evan Bransdorfer, said: “The College Combine is a fantastic opportunity for NCE Soccer College ID Players.

“They provide opportunities for players to train directly with college coaches and then play games with the coaches watching on.

“The sessions are very personnel, divided into small groups to give both player and coaches the opportunity to interact and really get a feel for each other.

“The quality is high and provide invaluable insight for our players and their families watching on.

“For many, this is the first step to developing a relationship with their preferred choice of University or perhaps be introduced to a College they hadn’t previously considered.”

Combine Format

The College Combine format is perfectly designed for both player and coach.

Players are divided into small groups with the soccer field divided into four quarters, each containing its own College coach.

The players train with each coach in each quarter for 15 or 20 minutes before rotating onto the next quarter and coach.

“It is intense but it provides that opportunity to work closely with each coach,” Evan added.

“It is much more personnel than a coach taking a large group and gives the players a chance to shine.

“It is also the first opportunity the players have to impress as people, as well as soccer players.

“The feedback from players, family and coaches has been incredibly positive and it provides NCE Soccer players with a fantastic advantage over other students.”

Webinar Series

As part of NCE’s College ID Program families can access a series of webinars providing valuable insights into the college recruitment process.

NCE College experts Evan Bransdorfer and Pat Doyle will guide and advise, passing on decades worth of experience to help players navigate their college journey successfully.

The two experts will be joined by a host of top college coaches, who together in male and female specific webinars and Q&A sessions, will provide a hugely valuable resource for NCE families.

The New York College Combine will be hosted at Saxon Woods Park, Westchester, NY on June 18th, before the New England College Combine at InSports, Trumbull, CT on June 25th and the North Atlantic College Combine at Total Turf Experience, Pitman, NJ on June 26th.
