Past Combine Success
Attendance at the Richmond Kickers Player Combine is one of the best ways to ensure that a player’s complete soccer resume and professional evaluation is in front of key decision makers for the Richmond Kickers organization.
The Kickers have a history of success with the Pro Combine. Most recently, several members of the 2022 roster — including Christian Molina, Chandler O’Dwyer, and Eli Mumford as well as 2021 attendees Chris Cole and Austin Causey — were discovered through the combine by our scouting and coaching staff.
Past combines have also produced such prominent players as 2016 USL Defender of the Year Finalist and All-League First Team Defender Hugh Roberts, 2013 USL Rookie of the Year Nate Robinson, Clyde Simms (New England Revolution, D.C. United, and U.S. Men’s National Team), Ronnie Pascale (Three-time USL Goalkeeper of the Year), Tim Brown (New Zealand National Team) and Robert Ssejjemba (2006 USL MVP and Ugandan National Team).
