BERKELEY - Former California women's soccer players Allie Kemp and Trudi Sharpsteen are among 170 athletes scheduled to participate in the first ever WUSA combine Dec. 4-9 at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Fla.
League personnel, GM's and coaches from all eight teams will be on hand to evaluate and scout players ahead of the Dec. 10-11 draft, which will include from 12 to 15 rounds. Player registration and physicals will take place the first two days of the combine, which will be followed by five full days of games and workouts. Current college seniors were not invited to the combine.
