Our FTF Combines are unique in many different ways.
First off, we value Quality over Quantity. We have strategically set the number of selected participants to give all participants ample opportunity to showcase their talents and be evaluated.
Our biggest differential is the fact that we live stream the majority of our Combines on YouTube for remote viewership. We understand not every scout in the world has the budget to fly out and attend in person, so we make it accessible for them to still scout at the event. All coaches in Canada and USA across NCAA, USports, CCAA, NAIA, JUCO will receive an invitation prior to the event along with the event details, live stream links and roster sheets. In addition, all our close contacts, agents and scouts we work with will receive personal messages.
Secondly, after attending our combine, the recruitment journey doesn’t stop there. We encourage participants to download the footage off of YouTube from the combine to make a highlight tape and send it off to coaches. If you need assistance in that process, we have a video team that makes professional highlight videos.
Also, we have a platform service that hosts a player’s CV and connects players to college coaches, scouts and agents. Now that we have seen your abilities live, we are able to speak to your talent should a coach/scout or agent reach out and ask us about your ability.
All players will receive a professional headshot at the combine. Professional gameplay photos will be taken at the event as well. All photos will be uploaded to Facebook within 10 days of the combine for you to view and save. When you commit to a post secondary opportunity, we will post about it on social media and give you and your club/academy recognition for all the hard work you put in. Tag us in your posts and we’ll make sure to show some love.
Lastly, you are now part of the #FTFFam.We encourage you to reach out at any point in time to ask questions about the recruitment process. We’ve been there. We understand how difficult it can be at times to navigate through it all. Reach out to us via email or on social media and we’d be happy to help.
A full refund (minus $50 processing fee) is granted only when requested prior to 30 days before the combine date. The Combine fee is non-refundable when requested within two weeks of the Combine date. Any requests for refunds made within two weeks of the Combine date will be declined. Injuries or emergencies that happen prior to the combine within 30 days – 14 days of the Combine date are subject to a credit. Refunds will be issued within 60- 90 days of the Combine date.
College athletes wishing to apply for FTF Combine Series should check with their school’s compliance officer and college coach to make sure that applying to the combine will not affect their college eligibility. Different governing bodies (NCAA, USPORTS, CCAA NAIA, JUCO, etc) have different regulations and the FTF Canada will not take any responsibility regarding your collegiate eligibility.
FTF has built up a database of every collegiate coach in North America. Each coach receives an invitation to attend in person and view the Livestream on YouTube. FTF emails out the roster sheet and livestream links to the coaches and scouts beforehand. In addition, FTF has a vast network of scouts and agencies for players pursuing professional opportunities. Please see our alumni list for players that have used us as a resource and went on to post-secondary and professional opportunities.
Each outfield player is scheduled to play in 4 showcase games over the course of the two days.
Participants must wear their own soccer shorts and socks (preferably black), along with shin guards and cleats. FTF will be providing every accepted participant with a Combine jersey that must be worn on both days of the Combine. In addition, FTF will be providing an ID pinnie which must be returned after the two days.
Do not lose your ID Pinnie! This is how coaches and scouts will identify you over the course of the two days. It is very imperative that you take care of the pinnie. If you do end up losing your ID pinnie, you must pay a $50 replacement fee.
