**PLEASE NOTE - Only Session I is being conducted. We made this change, because we did not want the attending college coaches leaving a small second session early (which we have learned happends with a smaller last session and college coaches bailing out!).
The Far Western's Recruiting Combine will be held on April 24th at the Reno Sparks Convention Center and is open to any high school age player, regardless if they are participating in the Far Westerns National Qualifier or not.
The Far Westerns Recruiting Combine will have one wave available (6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) and will be promoted to every NCAA Division I team in the country. In addition, we will promote the Combine to every NCAA Division II, Division III, NAIA and Junior College Volleyball in the West Coast and Mountain regions.
The Player's name will be on a registered list, and at Combine check in, each player will be given a bib #, so college coaches can easily match player and contact information - Seniors will also be given a colored wristband for quick identification. Players should wear normal volleyball practice gear (no need to wear uniforms or shirts with a number on them).
Volleyball players will be divided by position and graduation year to allow attending college coaches to effeciently evaluate them. 10+ courts will be used at the Reno Sparks CC, with each court having a "court coach", to allow players to showcase their skills sets to the college coaches.
The court coaches will put the players through volleyball drills within thier specific positions, along with combining positions to illustrate group skill sets. Players WILL NOT 6 on 6 scrimmage, because scrimmages have the highest rate of injuries and we want to avoid such occurances, especially with the Far Westerns starting the next day!
Parents are not allowed into the Combine, per the request of the college coaches - This allows the players to focus on skills and the college coaches to focus on evaluations.
***Please note - Because of the limited number of openings in the Far Westerns Recruiting Combine, cancellations will not be refunded within 48 hours of the Combine. This is to allow families on the wait list the opportunity to register.
