YOU GOT THIS.
What you ran last year, what people believe, what coaches think, what the doubters say––all that doesn’t matter. What matters is you’ve now got two runs at five NFL drills to prove them wrong.
The Rivals Combine Series uses laser timing systems, the same equipment trusted by the NFL Combine. Athletes will be tested in the 40-Yard Dash, Shuttle Run, 3-Cone Drill, Vertical Jump and Broad Jump. Every athlete will get two runs at each test with the best time or marks recorded.
NCSA Camp Pass
At each combine, top performers will be selected for an NCSA Camp Pass,
which gets them into the elite, invite-only Rivals Camp Series the next day.
SHARE OR SCRATCH.
Good combines are worth sharing. Post your pics and stats on social media, send them to coaches on your college list and add your results to your recruiting profiles.
A select group of top combine performers will get their ticket punched to the invite-only Rivals Camp Series the following day.
Not your day? You have the option to scratch your results from the site and try again.
You can scratch your scores by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

To be a serious recruit, you need real stats to back you up. The Rivals Combine Series is designed to give high school athletes the opportunity to get accurate stats and prove your value as a recruit.
Athletes who have recorded times from a reputable combine have an extra edge when discussing scholarship opportunities with colleges. NCSA™, the largest athletic recruiting network connecting student-athletes with college coaches, will be onsite to assist players and parents through the recruiting process. Athletes will also receive Rivals and NCSA™ profiles.
Top performers at each combine will be invited to participate in the Rivals Camp Series the following day in the same city.
Combines are geared toward high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors.
All Rivals Combines are free.
Yes. Posting top times at the Rivals Combine can definitely help your ability to be recruited. We have seen interest from colleges increase dramatically for prospects who do well at Rivals combines.
NCSA™ will be onsite hosting recruiting assessments for 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.
Players can sign up for a combine here. Advance registration is strongly encouraged. Walk-ups are likely to be allowed to participate after the registered players have completed the events.
After registering, you will get an email confirming your reserved spot. You will also receive reminders leading up to the event. If you do not receive a confirmation email after registering, contact RivalsRegistration@reigningchamps.com.
The event is probably full. Registration will remain open until the event reaches capacity. After that, registration will be closed. You can walk up on the day of the event, but registered athletes will be allowed through to perform tests prior to any walk-ups.
No. If you do not pre-register, we can’t 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.
Players participating in the Rivals Combine Series need to bring a pair of cleats. No track cleats are allowed. Gatorade™ will be provided onsite. We encourage you to leave any valuables at home. We are not responsible for any stolen or misplaced items!
After the combine, you will have the option to scratch any of the scores that you don’t want viewed by the public and college coaches.
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 email@example.com.
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.
Only credentialed participants, combine staff, volunteers and media will be allowed access to the field.
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 official results will be emailed to your combine registration email within one week of the event you attended. You will leave the combine with a scorecard showing unofficial results.
If you feel that you were sent the incorrect data, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Athletes are nominated by a Rivals Analyst or selected as a top athlete during a Rivals Combine Series. Coaches who would like to nominate a player can submit information and a video link here. Any player interested in nominating himself can also send information. If a nominated player is selected he will receive a sign-up code from a Rivals Analyst. We will select some top performers from the Rivals Combine Series to attend the camp, but not all camp attendees are selected from the combine.
The Combine Fast Pass allows you to bypass all waiting areas and instantly access the field. There are only 500 passes available for purchase at each Combine. Fast Passes will not be available for purchase onsite. There will be no refunds for Combine Fast Pass purchases.
