Next Season Starts NOW… that’s what most coaches are telling their players and for good reason. It isn’t long after the season ends til the crew of ESPN RISE and NIKE come into town.
On February 16th, there will be a 1000 + Goal Oriented Athletes from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and perhaps even further away will travel to Massillon to test their skills sets in the 40 yard dash, the Vertical, the Power Ball Toss and my favorite, the Agility Cone drill.
In preparation for this event, athletes from local schools and abroad are pushing hard to increase their strength and speed in order to perform at their best.
Pictured above, we have several of our athletes putting in work.
Last spring nearly 17,000 of the nation’s top prospects were tested and rated. 2013, the 10th year of the Nike Combines, will once again showcase talent from all corners of the country with a 13-stop tour.
These combines are free of charge to attend. Get in on the action and come on out!
Attending one of the Nike SPARQ Combines gives each athlete the opportunity to get professionally SPARQ tested. SPARQ stands for speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness. The rating comes from a series of sport-specific tests and gives athletes a chance to see their strengths and weaknesses. Athletes have a chance to measure themselves against other elite players in their class.
This provides an excellent opportunity for great recruiting exposure and coverage. Stories, photos and videos from all the events will posted on StudentSports.com recapping the areas top performers.
College’s across the country will have instant access to the infamous “SPARQ” score each athlete will establish after completing all 4 events.
