Due to COVID-19, high school senior football players will not be able to showcase their skills and athletic abilities this fall on the football field. For many of these athletes, the inability to show colleges their athleticism either via game footage or stats, could result in a loss of potentially playing at the next level. Knowing this, KMKfit LLC wanted to help give these athletes a chance to showcase their hard work.
On Sunday, Nov. 1, from 12-4 pm it will be hosting our first-ever KMK Combine Invitational in Fairfield at the Sportsplex on 85 Mill Plain Road, unit P. Coaches from across the state will hand-pick their top players by position, for a free Combine experience, where all the necessary athletic abilities tested at the college level (10 yard dash, 5-10-5, vertical jump, broad jump, bench press, 1 min bike speed and endurance test).
This Combine experience will be live-streamed on all our social media platforms for all coaches to see. A link to watch the live feed will be provided to all coaches, players, and families. If an athlete wants an individual tape of their scores we will also provide so they can send their footage to selected colleges that have shown interest in them. Each player invited to the Combine will have a specific 15 minute time slot where they are required to come and perform a series of tests.
Athletes should show up 10-15 minutes prior to their required time slot in order to receive proper warmup from a certified strength and conditioning specialist. This will ensure proper social distancing and space requirements mandated by the state. Having specific time slots per position will also make it easier for potential college scouts to see the position they want to recruit.
A registered nurse and athletic trainer will also be on staff to make sure the cleanliness and COVID-19 guidelines are practiced and maintained throughout the Combine. Waivers must be signed by each athlete when checking in.
