Project Combina exists to increase the rate of athletic recruitment of regional boys and girls high school soccer players. Its mission is to use soccer to build bridges to college and beyond and to transform the region into a soccer stronghold. Project Combina is a combination of academic fellowship with a focus on reading and writing, a soccer team, and a community involvement club.
It will include multiple prongs, including a showcase event to bring together the best talent in the region and disseminate to potential recruiters. Progressors are working with existing club teams and development programs in the region and developing educational aspects to help explain the NCAA recruiting strategies to players and their families. Progressors are also developing ways to facilitate and bring positive attention to the region for scouts and head coaches.
