PSC are proud to announce they will be hosting a professional soccer combine in Carlsbad, California on May 11th and 12th, 2015 in conjunction with USL Pro franchise, Tulsa Roughnecks and local youth soccer club Carlsbad United.
Tulsa Roughnecks coaching staff will be using the combine to identify possible future players for the club as well as affiliate programs they work with. During 2014, Coach Irving has had great success recruiting a number of players from combines and the Southern California region for his current 2015 roster. Current Roughneck players from Southern California or recruited from recent 2014 events include:
Oscar Jimenez (Santa Ana, CA) Recruited from PSC’s 2014 San Diego Combine
Mason Grimes (Temecula, CA)
Zac Lubin (Bozeman, MT) Recruited from PSC’s 2014 San Diego Combine
Sammy Ochoa (Riverside, CA)
Eli Galbraith-Knapp (San Diego, CA)
Kyrian Nwabueze (Los Angeles, CA)
Kyle Venter (LA Galaxy)
The two-day event will include small-sided and 11v11 games on both days. Players will be assessed by Head Coach, David Irving and Assistant Head Coach, Tom Taylor.
“We are pleased to have secured an excellent venue for our time in California,” said Coach Irving. “During our west coast road trip, we will be using Carlsbad, as our base for training and preparation for the upcoming games against the LA Galaxy and Orange County Blues. I would like to thank Carlsbad United Directors, Michael Duggan and Glenn Malone for their help with the organization and I’m looking forward to assessing potential players in the region from the local clubs and colleges. Southern California is a hotbed for talent and I’ve been pretty successful in recent years finding players for my teams from this area. Our current roster has a number of boys from the San Diego and Los Angeles area so I’m sure many of them will be excited at the chance of returning to play these two games.
