MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Navigating the waters of college athletics can be a bit daunting, especially for high school seniors. Berkeley County Schools hopes to address some of the issues in the first annual All Sports Combine scheduled for June 5 at Spring Mills High School.
Berkeley County Schools Assistant Superintendent Ron Stephens, who will become the district’s interim superintendent July 1, said they’ve been working on the combine for the last several months.
“We were approached early winter about promoting Berkeley County Schools athletes and how we can help them as a district, across-the-board,” Stephens said.
The all sports combine is set up to help athletes find out where they stack up against other athletes.
“We wanted to make sure that all of our rising athletes were exposed to a combine-like atmosphere where they do a variety of athletic drills and measurements and times–just to provide feedback to those people to let them know where they stand,” Stephens said.
He said the combine is not just about the numbers.
“The ultimate goal is educate our student athletes on where they stand individual and also they have information on what it takes to be a college athlete,” Stephens said.
The combine is set for 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. next Sunday, June 5, at Spring Mills High School’s Cardinal Stadium. It is for Berkeley County students entering 8th thru 12th grades.
