  1. What is the bench press weight required?

    1. Senior Staff Writer | Reply

      We have two weights – 185lbs and 225lbs. Players are not required to do any testing, so we ask that only players who can safely lift those weights participate in this test. They will not be penalized for not completing the test.

  2. hello thanks for the opportunity for our son, are parents allowed into the facility to watch players. Thanks again

  3. Will you please briefly describe how the bench press portion will work?

    1. Senior Staff Writer | Reply

      There will be two bench press stations set up. One will be 185 lbs, the other will be 225 lbs. Players will get to choose which station to use. They’ll do as many continuous reps as possible during their attempt. This station, like all stations, is not required. Players who cannot lift at least 185 lbs. for any reason will not test at this station.

  4. I would love to come up to this combine, but with the rainouts and cold, the baseball schedules are a disaster. I don’t want to register in case I have a make up game that night. If I don’t have a game, can I be assured of a spot for Walk-up registration? It would be quite a trip up there, so I don’t want to waste my time/money.

      Thanks for the message. We will not turn away our walk-up participants. Hope you can make it!

  5. Do you need to bring a helmet?

    1. Senior Staff Writer | Reply

      Yes, players will need a helmet to compete in all one-on-one and position-specific drills. Please see the section above on this page entitled “What to Bring” to ensure you’re ready to fully participate.

  6. If it is raining or storming will the combine be moved to another location?

    1. Senior Staff Writer | Reply

      The rain is scheduled to pass this afternoon. We’ll be all-clear for the combine at Thirlby Field tonight! See ya there!
