September 2022 – National Scouting Combine continues to develop and strengthen the strategic partnership with USA Weightlifting. For the 2nd year, NSC will be providing comprehensive standardized performance testing to assess, grade and evaluate prospects who can be developed into future USA Weightlifting athletes.
“Our goal has been to deliver more value in the way USA Weightlifting recruits and identifies the most qualified talent,” said Jimmy Kibble, CEO of the National Scouting Combine, “We provide an opportunity for athletes to showcase their abilities and receive incredible opportunities to be seen and scouted by organizations like USA weightlifting where they could end up representing the United States of America!”
Over the course of 5 days, the National Scouting Combine will invite both male and female athletes and free agents 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 are so excited to once again partner with the National Scouting Combine in our continued efforts to find our next Olympic hopeful,” said Suzy Sanchez, Director of Culture, Community, and Outreach.
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.
