WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE RIVALS ADIZERO COMBINE
The Rivals adizero Combines presented by adidas are free events open to all high school players but geared toward freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. The agenda for the day of the Rivals adizero Combine is consistent for every combine location.

The Following Information is Consistent for Every Combine Location:

  • Registration begins at 8:30am and will close at 1:00pm.
    • NOTE: the combine is a continuous flow so there is no official start and stop time for each athlete.
  • The combine will end when the final registered athlete completes all combine tests.

Please Note: Depending on when you arrive and the volume of athletes, you may experience a significant wait time to accommodate the number of athletes registered.

IMPORTANT DETAILS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR RIVALS ADIZERO COMBINE
To have the best Rivals adizero Combine experience, read through this list of important information. Don’t forget to show this information to your parent, guardian and/or coach before the combine!

  • This is not a camp. There are no skill development drills or 1-on-1 challenges. In other words, there will be no footballs on the field!
  • You will receive a free adidas compression shirt at registration.
  • Bring your football cleats – no track cleats are allowed.
  • Make sure to hydrate and eat a healthy breakfast before you arrive. Free Gatorade will be provided during the combine.
  • The Rivals adizero Combine will not provide trainers for pre-taping.
  • Your combine results will be emailed to you after the event.
  • Only credentialed participants, combine staff, volunteers and media will be allowed access to the field.
  • The combine is rain or shine—hopefully, it’s only shine.
  • Athletes should leave phones and any personal items in their bags. The Rivals Camp Series is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Follow along with Izell Reese @izellreese, GM of Rivals Camp Series, to see what takes place on-site at each combine!

How can I change my registration information?

I am trying to register, but the website won’t let me—why?

This likely means that the event is full. Registration will remain open until the event reaches capacity. Once the event reaches capacity, registration will be closed. You can walk up on the day of the event, but registered athletes will be allowed through prior to any walk-ups.

I am trying to register for a combine, but it has reached capacity. What can I do?

There are some locations where we must limit capacity due to venues and scheduling. However, we do allow walk-ups at every combine. We will begin accepting walk-ups on the day of the combine and will allow them until we reach the end of the session.

If I walk up to an event, am I guaranteed a spot in the combine?

We can’t make any promises. If you do not pre-register we cannot guarantee that we will be able to get you in as a walk-up. However, it is likely we will be able to accommodate you, and we will do our best to get everyone onsite through the drills.

What happens at a Rivals adizero Combine?

Players will have an opportunity to have their times recorded in all the key football testing areas. Players will be timed in the 40-Yard Dash (two runs, fastest time recorded), Shuttle Run (two runs, tests athlete’s lateral quickness and explosion), 3-Cone Drill (tests athlete’s ability to change directions at a high speed), Vertical Jump (measures lower-body explosion and power) and Broad Jump (tests athlete’s lower-body explosion and strength). All players who test at a Rivals adizero Combine will receive a Rivals profile, so each player will have his picture taken and his height and weight measured. This year, players will also receive a Next College Student Athlete profile they can use for their recruiting.

Players participating in the Rivals adizero Combine need to bring a pair of cleats. No track cleats are allowed. Gatorade will provide hydration; players are encouraged to eat a healthy breakfast the morning of the combine. We encourage you to leave any valuables at home and NOT bring them with you to the event. We are not responsible for any stolen or misplaced items!

What are the player benefits for attending a Rivals adizero Combine?

In addition to receiving a Rivals profile, players who have recorded times from a reputable combine have a leg up when discussing scholarship opportunities with colleges. NCSA, the largest athletic recruiting network connecting student-athletes with college coaches, will be on site to help explain the recruiting process to players and parents. In addition, top performers at each combine will be invited to participate in the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp the following day in the same city (except in Chicago).

What if I test at the Rivals adizero Combine and I don’t like my scores? Will they hurt me in the long run?

After every combine, you will have the option to scratch any of the scores that you don’t want viewed by the public and college coaches.

How do I scratch my scores?

Combine participants have 48 hours to scratch any of their scores. After the 48-hour window, the scores will be locked and shared publicly. You can scratch your scores by emailing scratch@ncsasports.org.

Can I come to the Rivals adizero Combines and watch?

Yes. We invite parents, friends and fans of the student-athletes to come and watch them test. However, please know that the space and location of the viewing area will vary greatly based on the venue.

How long does the testing take?

The amount of time you spend at the combine will vary depending on when you arrive and get in line for registration. Once you are through the registration line, the testing takes about an hour to complete.

After the event, your personal results will be emailed to your combine registration email.

How long will it take to get my results?

Your official results will be emailed to you within one week of the event that you attended.

I received my scores but they are incorrect. What do I do?

If you feel that you were sent the incorrect data, you can email reports@zybeksports.com.

I am a coach—can I volunteer to work at the combine?

Yes. Please contact Dane Clark at dclark@ncsasports.org

How do I get invited to attend a Rivals 3 Stripe Camp?

You must be nominated or selected as a top athlete during the Rivals adizero Combine, held the day before the camp. Coaches who would like to nominate a player can send information as well as a video link to info@rivalscamps.com. Any player interested in nominating himself can also send information to info@rivalscamps.com or visit VTO Sports. We will select some top performers from the Rivals adizero Combine to attend the camp—held the day after the combine.

Will attending a camp or combine potentially help my ability to be recruited?

Yes. Posting top times at the Rivals adizero Combine can certainly help your ability to be recruited. We have seen interest from colleges increase dramatically for prospects who do well at Rivals combines. NCSA, the largest recruiting network connecting student-athletes with college coaches, will be onsite to help explain the recruiting process to players and parents. After the event, players will have access to NCSA’s extensive library of recruiting resources, as well as its network of more than 35,000 college coaches.

What if I don’t perform well at combines, but still want to compete for a Camp Invite?

Any player interested in competing for a camp invite himself can also visit VTO Sports.

Who can I contact for more information?
