Tier 2 Sports was set up to provide football players the opportunity to be evaluated by all professional leagues and teams throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. This evaluation can be accomplished at one site, at one time, and for one fee. Prior to the inception of Tier 2 Sports, an aspiring professional football player would have to attend many tryouts, at many locations and have to pay thousands of dollars to have the chance to be evaluated and get the opportunity to play at the professional level. Tier 2 Sports provides a three day mini-camp where players come to be tested in the same way as the NFL combine, but Tier 2 Sports is much more detailed than even the NFL. The player will be measured physically and tested mentally and they will have the opportunity to showcase their skills against other top players all while a live stream is broadcasting and cameras are videotaping the entire event. All of the information and video obtained during the mini camp will be sent to all leagues and teams throughout North America that currently pay players to play professional football.
While this evaluation is very valuable, there is a second motivation for those who choose to attend the mini-camps. After the completion of the 10 nationwide mini camps, and nearly 4000 athletes evaluated, Tier 2 Sports staff will select the top 10% players and those players will be invited to participate in the 2018 Tier 2 Sports Classic All-Star Game. This will be a game played on the same weekend of the NFL draft in Scottsdale, AZ. It will be an additional opportunity to evaluated by professional teams, only in a game rather than combine setting. The timing of the game is key, as it is immediately after the draft NFL teams select and offer free agent contracts. The goal is to provide one last opportunity for players at the Tier 2 Classic All-Star Game to be offered a free agent opportunity with the NFL, or other professional team. Players will be invited to attend a full week in Arizona preparing for the game which will be coached by current college and professional coaches. All professional leagues will be in attendance, as well as those management officials who will be watching the live “You Tube” stream.
