As part of the EDP Cup Spring Showcase soccer tournament (June 16-17, 2018), EDP will hold its first EDP College Combine on Friday, June 15, 2018, at Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, NJ.
The EDP College Combine is a tailored recruitment opportunity that addresses the needs of college coaches and players alike.
At this event, 64 boys and 64 girls will be split into teams and play in front of a group of selected college soccer coaches. Current high school sophomores and juniors whose teams are registered for the EDP Cup Spring Showcase will be eligible to take part in the EDP College Combine.
Applications will be accepted starting on April 16. There will be a $100 per player fee to participate.
"The EDP College Combine will provide both players and college coaches with a refined recruiting opportunity that may be difficult to achieve in a traditional showcase setting. Tuckahoe is already home to numerous nationally ranked tournaments, and we are excited to bring this unique recruitment platform to Tuckahoe for the benefit of our teams. The EDP College Combine will provide the concentrated scouting opportunity that players and college coaches are looking for," said Alan Shilling, CEO of EDP.
Colleges that have confirmed their attendance thus far include University of Pennsylvania, Hofstra University, Seton Hall University, Marist College, Lehigh University, Holy Cross University, Monmouth University, Army West Point, NJ Institute of Technology, Bucknell University, St. Joseph's University, Rider University, Rowan University, Drew University, and Rosemont College.
EDP College Combine players and their families will also have access to Dean Koski's (Lehigh University) presentation of 10 Essential Skills for Success at the College Level and Beyond, which will be delivered at Tuckahoe Turf Farms immediately following the event.
