IOWA RUSH COLLEGE COMBINE
2013 was a SUCCESS!
A major goal of Iowa Rush is providing resources to those players who have the ambition of playing soccer at the collegiate level. To that end, the Iowa Rush College Combine was created in 2012 to annually give high-school-age players within the club exposure to coaches from colleges and universities throughout Iowa and surrounding states. On December 21st of this past year the club hosted the 2nd Iowa Rush College Combine at the Jacobson Center on the Iowa State Fairgrounds. The 2013 event had over 60 boys and girls participate from Iowa Rush and other clubs throughout the state of Iowa.
The second year of the combine brought increased visibility for players with 16 collegiate coaches in attendance which doubled the number from the inaugural event. Schools from Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska were represented.
Feedback has been extremely positive over the past month. Coaches have consistently mentioned the standard of play, facilities, and organization as key contributors to creating a worthwhile experience for them. Based on this, the staff at Iowa Rush is excited about the future of this event and confident that it will continue to grow as a winter destination for schools looking to recruit quality student-athletes.
