The 2019 Rivals Camp Series will be biggest in history. Adidas continues as the presenting sponsor for the largest event for high school football players in the country. Gatorade, NCSA and Zybek Sports also return as partners for the series.

Players attending Rivals 3 Stripe Camps – considered the premier events in the country – receive instruction from top former NFL and college players and coaches and then compete in one-on-one drills. Players who have attended Rivals camps comprise a Who’s Who in the football world. Current NFL players Jalen Ramsey, Deshaun Watson, Josh Rosen, Saquon Barkley and Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson attended a Rivals camp, as did 21 first-round draft picks from the 2018 NFL draft.

The Rivals adizero Combines, for players graduating in 2020-23, are held on Saturdays before camps in most cities. Players will record times in the key football testing areas: 40-yard dash, Shuttle Run, 3-Cone Drill, Vertical Jump and Broad Jump. All players will receive a Rivals profile, and top combine performers will have an opportunity to earn an invitation to the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp. Top combine performers in Las Vegas and Chicago will earn a camp spot to a nearby regional camp. Participation is free for athletes.

Rivals was the first digital company to recognize the need for in-depth recruiting coverage and to supply it nationally. Rivals revolutionized recruiting coverage as the first organization to provide innovative features like national player rankings, online video highlights, a searchable player-profile database, official visit lists, recruited-by-coach tracking and more.

Would a poor performance at a camp hurt my ability to be recruited?  

A poor performance at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp will not hurt your ability to be recruited, as our team of writers focus on the top performers at each event and don't call out poor performers. However, we provide no promises when it comes to our national rankings and we expect some players to raise their stock with our analysts, while the stock of others could drop. However, the instruction a player receives at the camp and the opportunity to gauge his current skill-set against the very best is what makes these camps invaluable. We have a saying in the camp business - "you can't get better sitting at home" - and we expect the best of the best to want to prove they belong in that select company.

Will attending a camp or combine potentially help my ability to be recruited?  

Yes. A good performance at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp or posting top times at the Rivals adizero Combine can certainly help your ability to be recruited. We have seen interest from colleges increase dramatically for prospects that do well at Rivals camps and combines.
