EVENT OVERVIEW

Every SoccerViza event has a professional scouting atmosphere, leading to opportunities for players. Each regional combine is scouted by SoccerViza’s staff which have identified over 100 players for professional opportunities over the past six transfer windows. The players selected from regional combines will showcase themselves FREE of charge in front of professional coaches and club scouting staff, in an intimate, 60-player elite combine. 
 
SoccerViza combines include small-sided and full-sided games, as well as a career-advice seminar for players.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    What is the breakdown of the registration cost? What am I paying for?

    At SoccerViza we like to be very transparent with our players and future players. We understand this step can sometimes feel a bit scary to jump into, but we would like to say we are very upfront, friendly people who enjoy having conversations with our players. We encourage you to call us and speak with us further on this topic if you have any other questions or concerns, but here is the simple breakdown. You are paying for the registration fees, a SoccerViza merch store t-shirt, a career advice and tips packet created by our founder and current professional coach, a seminar, and copy of the event video recordings - all included in our low price.

    What is the ID Camp?


    The ID Camp is an affordable, two-day combine held in different regions around the United States and Canada each transfer window. The way it works is that players attend the ID Camp and play in front of scouts, who evaluate their performance and select only the best players to go forward to the showcase. Each region will have three ID Camps which players will be selected from in order to play in the regional showcase.

    What is the Free Combine?


    The free combine is an elite, closed-door, three-day showcase event that is held in different regions around the United States and Canada each transfer window. The combine is three days long, and attended by professional scouts from SoccerViza's Network of clubs around the world. If you have been selected to play in the showcase, there will be no registration fee, and you will only be responsible for your travel and lodging. You must qualify for this combine by performing well in one of SoccerViza's ID camps, and being selected by the scouts there to play in the showcase.

    How much time is there between ID Camps and the Showcase?


    Each region will be wrapped up within six weeks at the most. ID Camps will be held week-to-week, and then there will be a two to three week break until the Showcase, so that players have time to rest, recover, work on aspects of their game that need improvement, and focus on the next event.

    How does the selection process work?


    Players will have two-days to impress scouts in the regional ID Camps, and the selections will be made through the end of the week following the last day. The scouting staff will evaluate the pool of players through their notes and through video footage of the games, and the selected players will be notified accordingly.

    When I arrive at the airport, how will I be transported to the hotel?


    As our combine package does not include transportation, you will be required to sort out travel on your own terms.. Generally, the hotels we select are no more than an hour from the airport and within a half hour to the fields to simplify traveling as much as possible while participating at our events. Additionally, many of our players network together to carpool from the airport to their hotel as well as to fields.

    Why do the event packages vary in price? Why do some cost more than others?


    As the economy fluctuates and businesses sometimes change management or owners, prices sometimes change as well. These things usually do not effect the price of a combine, but sometimes you may notice a slight increase or decrease from the year before, or from city to city. Facility rental may be one price in Dallas in March, but be vastly different in San Diego in November. However, as SoccerViza continues to grow and develop long term relationships with cities we work in, the price per event will usually remain stable but for rare occasions.

    Where does SoccerViza hold their events?


    We hold our events in key cities and countries all over the world. We like to make ourselves available to every market of player possible. Most of our events will happen in the USA, but a good portion will also happen in Scandinavia and Europe. In the United States, we travel up and down both the east coast and west coast as well as scaling the midwest and mid-south in cities like Orlando, Atlanta, New York, Washington DC, San Diego, Dallas, Chicago, and Phoenix to name a few. Overseas, we hold events in Iceland, Portugal, the UK - this list grows every year.

    Do I need a VISA to go on trial at your combines or showcases outside my country?

    A VISA to travel to our events is not needed unless the country of your passport does not have an agreement with the country you are visiting. In the event that your origin country does require a VISA, you are responsible for taking the necessary steps to obtain one. SoccerViza cannot write letters of invitation or make requests on your behalf to governmental agencies. Our events are typically 3 to 10 days in length and because your stay is not extended beyond that, more than a simple tourist or temporary visitor VISA is not required. It’s basically like going on vacation. However, if you were to be selected by a club while participating at our event, you would then negotiate your work VISA requirements with your new club in their country. In this case, most clubs and colleges will handle this for you.

    How many coaches come to a Men’s ID Camp in the USA?

    SoccerViza's regional ID Camps will be evaluated by SoccerViza's coaching and scouting staff as well as outside scouts or coaches from the region, providing a balanced evaluation of players from multiple viewpoints and opinions of the game. This committee will select the players who perform well at the ID Camp in order to move on to the Elite Showcase for their region.

    How many coaches come to a Men’s Showcase Combine in the USA?

    We will have a minimum of four coaches or professional club staff at every event. We look to make that the standard. We always encourage more coaches, but rest assured that the events remain very intimate and with the eyes of four coaches or more on you, you can bet your money you will not be overlooked over a 3 or 10 day period.

    Your events sound great, but do players who attend really sign professional contracts?

    Good question and we proudly and happily would like to say YES. Thus far we have had over 100 players go on trials with clubs after attending a SoccerViza event and there have been 35 signings for a professional contract in the last 3 years. We will regularly have coaches call us wanting to know when our next event will be because of our quality over quantity approach.

    If a team is interested in me, what happens?

    If a coach approaches the SoccerViza staff about you, we will notify you immediately and get you in touch with the coach to setup the trial. In most cases, the coach will request a trial with you and not an outright signing. Once the trial is set up, it is up to you to perform to be given the opportunity to sign a contract. In some of our success stories, players were signed on the spot at the event.

    What should I bring to an event as far as equipment, clothes, and gear? Are there any requirements?

    The field surface will be clearly stated on the event homepage so you are aware of the proper footwear, but all players should have at least a pair of firm ground boots and a pair of turfs or indoors. Shinguards are strongly recommended and SoccerViza will not be held liable for an injury incurred because of the non-use of shinguards. Running shoes are recommended, as well as a bag and enough clothes to last the length of the trip, which is of course left to your discretion.

    When the event is done for the day, what is there to do?

    At SoccerViza we take pride in every aspect of planning this trip for you and we place your hotel near many local attractions, eateries, and various forms of entertainment. You are free to explore the surrounding area or stay comfortably rested in your hotel room. It’s your trip, it’s your choice, but we do ask to please be safe and respectful of the people of the locale you are visiting.
