Information to Register for the 2021 WFCA Combine

Cost of the combine is $60. We are also excited to offer the opportunity for athletes to sign up for recruiting profiles with the WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profiles (www.epochrecruitingwi.com).

The cost of the Player Profile by itself is normally $125 ($150 after the Combine), but we are pleased to offer an incredible value of both the Combine and the Player Profile for just $170! Full details of the WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profile can be found below.

You will be required to pay via credit or debit card to complete this online registration. The Combine is limited to the first 400 athletes to sign up.

The WFCA will be hosting a combine for high school athletes on April 24th, 2021. The event will take place at NX Level’s new indoor facility. The address is:

W234 S3555 Les Paul Pkwy
Waukesha, WI 53189

Athletes will participate in waves during the day based on position groups. The information on registration, warm-up, and testing times is below, though it is subject to change. The primary position you sign up at will determine what group you participate with.

We will test on the following: 40, Pro Agility, L- drill, vertical broad jump, and bench press. You will get two (2) attempts at each test. Every player will get a verified height and weight figure as well.

Results will be posted on Wifca.org and WisSports.net, and provided to D1, D2, and D3 colleges across the Midwest. College coaches will be in attendance once again (more than 80 attended in 2019 from numerous states around the Midwest), including Division 1 schools (there were 23 D1 coaches there in 2019). To view results from the 2019Combine, which featured more than 500 athletes, please click here.

Refund Policy: NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED BY THE WFCA OR EPOCH RECRUITING! You will have the option at checkout to purchase Registration Saver insurance through our third-party partners; this insurance will cover you if you need to cancel or withdraw from the Combine due to injury or travel problem, though it will not cover schedule conflicts or a change of mind about participating. Please carefully read the policy information before purchasing to ensure it will cover your possible situations. The policy has some exclusions for COVID-related situations. You are not required to purchase this insurance, but if you do not, refunds will not be provided by the WFCA or Epoch for any cancelations. 

2021 WFCA FALL COMBINE UPDATED PROCEDURES:

  • All players will be subject to a basic health check, including temperature check, prior to entering the facility
  • If an athlete is experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, including elevated temperature, please stay home. If the athlete or anyone in their household has tested positive recently, displaying symptoms, or had a close exposure, please stay home
  • Players will be asked to maintain six-foot social distancing when possible, including during registration and between drills

WFCA/EPOCH RECRUITING PLAYER PROFILES

Players who participate in the Combine can purchase a WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profile. In essence, a WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profile is an online tool that provides college football coaches with all of the pertinent information they seek as recruiters. Highlights of a WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profile includes: official Combine results and rankings, position, year in school, height and weight (as measured at the Combine), player contact info, parent names, high school coach’s name and contact info, video highlights link, transcript, player stats/awards/honors, and an “About Me” narrative. This information is free for college coaches.

The WFCA has created this profile option so that out Combine participants will have the ability to create an online resume at an affordable price. There are outside sources that charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars for an online profile. Although the WFCA is not a recruiting service, we feel college coaches trust the Combine results, rankings, and player information provided as accurate. Thus, WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profiles carry more weight than a paid recruiter’s would.

For $170, a player can sign up for both the Combine and a WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profile. The cost of sign up for the WFCA/Epoch Recruiting Player Profile by itself is $125 up until the Combine and $150 after the Combine.

SPECIAL HOTEL RATE

We have set up a special rate for those attending the Combine at the Holiday Inn Pewaukee-Milwaukee West and Wildwood Lodge hotels, which are just minutes away from the NX Level facility.

WFCA DISCLAIMER

The WFCA has created this profile option so that our Combine participants will have the ability to create an online ‘resume’ at an affordable price. There are outside sources that charge hundreds and thousands of dollars for an online resume”. The WFCA is supplying official WFCA Combine results and rankings based on the results. These are not made up numbers but are in fact numbers obtained by the trained professionals at NX Level. We are not a recruiting service but we feel college coaches trust us. We also feel college coaches know our Combine results and rankings are accurate and carry more weight than a paid recruiter.

We are now making it easier for college coaches and high school football players to meet through the WFCA Player Profile. Our profile is an online resume’ that allows each player to update their own profile by using their login and password. College coaches will be able to contact players directly from their profile. Players will be able to send out their own personal profile by copying and pasting the link in emails they send to college coaches.

A player’s profile will be visible on our site for 365 days before the player has to renew his profile. Your profile will become active 48 hours after you complete the registration. Your profile will automatically update with combine results once the combine is completed.
