T&T combine coming to Brooklyn.
« on: April 26, 2012, 11:15:25 AM »
T&T combine coming to Brooklyn.

Trinidad & Tobago International Combine is a one day annual showcase for players that live in the United States that were either born in Trinidad & Tobago or have Trinidadian parentage.

The try-outs are only for players born in 1996 and 1997. This event will be held in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday 6th May, 2012 at Old Boys High Field located on 777 Rutland Road Brooklyn, New York at 1:30pm.

This event will be hosted by C.H.A.M.P.S. Soccer Academy in conjunction with Central Brooklyn Soccer Federation. For additional information please call 718-484-4732 or e-mail champsinfo@champsacademy.com. Players will be evaluated and data will be forwarded to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation for review and possible selection.

The Soca Warriors Online (SWO) will be sending a few potential prospects.

Meanwhile, the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation is currently preparing for the qualification phase of FIFA Under 17 World Cup to be held in United Arab Emirates late in 2013 and is looking for players that live abroad that have exceptional ability and can represent Trinidad & Tobago.

Qualification will begin in July 2012 for eventual participation in the CONCACAF Menís Under 17 Championship that will be held in Panama from April 6-19, 2013. The four top teams from this tournament will qualify for the FIFA 2013 Under 17 World Cup in the UAE.

To be considered for the screening, participants must meet the following requirements:

1. Must be born in 1996 or 1997.
2. Hold a valid Trinidad & Tobago passport in conjunction with a US Green Card.
3. Hold a valid US passport and parents and/or grandparents must be born in Trinidad & Tobago.
4. Currently playing for a US club team and possess a valid league ID.
5. Bring a copy of their birth certificate or passport.

Note: Players should pre-register by calling 718-484-4732 or via e-mail at champsinfo@champsacademy.com . In addition, players should wear a white jersey, red pants and white socks.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Hold a valid Trinidad & Tobago passport in conjunction with a US Green Card.

Frankly, IMV, this should not be made an absolute ... organizers should extend the opportunity to players who are eligible to hold a T&T passport. The actual physical passport shouldn't be made an obstacle to consideration.

Good point asylumseeker. Parentage and eligibility should be the requirement. Most kids born in the USA of Trinidad parents have a US Passport.

I think the notice is poorly worded and some of those items are meant to be either/or.

       Not most all of them have one because they can't go anywhere,do they have a T&T passport?why shouldn't it be a requirement?it have players that missed out on playing for T&T because they didn't have one,every time you call one of those players they don't have one and the Federation or their parents have to be scrambling to get one for them ask Deleon. could players represent the country if they don't have a T&T passport?

What about the youths in New Jersey... and DC.. and Miami?  How they supposed to afford to come to this combine?  Organizers need to make sure they hold tryouts in all these cities and stop discriminating against footballers from outside NYC.

I'm sorry guys but i trying to understand what's going on with our Football,who is T&T Combine?  anybody knew of this organization before today?  what part of the US are they based?    who are the people that run this organization?  are they sanctioned by the US,T&T etc etc ?    why is it only in Bklyn and is Bklyn the best place in NY for an event like this?  how many players can Boys High accommodate at any one time plus the place is not condusive for an event like this,that place don't even have somehere for players to change.

It seems like anybody can organize a group and run a Tryout and send some players for the TTFF and they have to accept,if you doing something like this somebody from the TTFF should be invited.

Appreciate yuh fairness. On de Tobago issue ah feel yuh. As unfair as de system is like you, I recognize that yuh still have to be grateful to fellas like tallman and others who have to go hunting to get some of these stories. It is painstakingly difficult to get a constant feed of information especially from the sista isle and before some go bashing dey should see how dey could put dey hand; hold de slack! You know more than everybody sometimes you livin in de hood and cya find out what time yuh village team playin, who dey playin, who startin. There will probably never be equal footing in the support structure between Trin & Tbgo. Tobago have 4 murders trinidad have 400. De disparity exists across the board.

Nah Coop's Boys High can hold two American football teams and it have lockers and showers... I think you thinking about the school at 1700 Fulton... but this ent the school... this is the athletic field up in Midwood.

btw... I wasn't exactly being serious about that Brooklyn talk, just underscoring that at combines like these is up to the players to find their way there.

brooklyn is the best place to have this , or at least start it.

the highest concentration of trinis so more bang for the back.


It is also easy to travel to from anywhere in the country.


JFK and LAG are major airports and you could reach easy from anywhere in the country.


If you good enough and could afford it, make a trip.

In america the better players used to travelling all over the country for Club soccer so this is nothing new.

that is the norm.

Hopefully it organize and they find some prospects......

In general US youth are better prepare that youth playing in TnT so they should find some players to strengthen the team.
