National Scouting Combine develops strategic partnership with Carolina Rugby Development Group

September 2022 – National Scouting Combine has developed a strategic partnership with Carolina Rugby Development Group to assist in the growth of rugby by providing comprehensive standardized performance testing to assess, grade and evaluate rugby prospects.

“Our goal has been to deliver more value in the way Carolina Rugby Development Group recruits and identifies the most qualified male and female talent for the various levels of Rugby,” said Jimmy Kibble, CEO of the National Scouting Combine, “Partnering with Carolina Rugby Development Group allows us to further grow our reach into the world of rugby while helping athletes find new opportunities to start or continue their careers.”

Over the course of 5 days, the National Scouting Combine will invite female athletes and free agent athletes to participate in combine testing and position drills. Draft eligible athletes will receive the opportunity to compete in the collegiate showcase game as well.

“We see the importance of being Performance ready when opportunities arise and we find that the testing parameters that Jimmy and his team provide, gives us an insight into the development needs of the players to meet those benchmarks.” Said Garen Casey, Executive Director USA Women’s Rugby League Inc. “With clubs and leagues now having high expectations on player development, this event will give us an insight into each player as well as the opportunities that we can refer to them from both a domestic and international nature”.

The National Scouting Combine, founded in 2010 by Jimmy Kibble, provides athletes with real opportunities to receive verified data they can use to improve, develop and promote their athletic abilities to the “next level”. The National Scouting Combine sets itself apart from every other testing event. Participants are evaluated using a proprietary algorithm that delivers an Athletic Performance Profile (APP) comprised of a comprehensive report of all the athletic data, comparative analysis, and unique insights to overall body control.

The Carolina’s as a region, has enormous levels of athletic talent across a wide range of sports, which is a minor part of the USA’s overall coverage. Rugby and Rugby League, whilst similar sports by way of skillset, are another outlet to provide new opportunities to athletes that often get lost in the process of taking the next step towards the professional arena. And in that process, don’t gain the knowledge on why they weren’t selected. which often leads to some giving up on that dream. For us here at Carolina Rugby Development Group, we provide the guidance and resources to athletes every chance of making their mark in Rugby, regardless of which code they play.
