The USC Combine


The USC Combine is our newest event in 2024, an individual challenge. This time it's all about pushing yourself to see what you're capable of.

We've got 6 events lined up - a range of strength, conditioning & power based exercises - take your pick, or take them all on!

You'll have the opportunity to compete in 3 categories:

  • Social 

  • Masters

  • Opens

To help you prepare we're running an 8 week challenge leading up to the event - use this as an opportunity to have a coach's 1-on-1 support to help you train for the USC Combine!
