Pick 6 Academy set to host Regional Ringers Youth Combine in Rockville, MD

Looking for a great combine to go to and showcase your skills, look no further than the Regional Ringers Youth Combine coming to Rockville, MD on December 29, 2018.

The Regional Ringers Prime Selection Youth Combined is hosted by Pick 6 Academy and will be held at the Michael & Son Sportsplex.

Event Director, John Panker, is excited to bring this combine to youth athletes. Panker also wants to stress to importance of education to the youth.

"This is our inaugural combine. We plan on doing this every year and want to see it grow. High school coaches will be in attendance for recruiting purposes as well," Panker said.

"This event is important to our team as it allows us to reach out to the younger student athletes in our area to show them what it takes to play at our level of play. Arguably, we coach in two of the best conferences in the country (WCAC, MIAA-A, MAC). We also as noted, want to educate the parents and the students about the admissions process to enroll into a private school of their choice. We also want to explain to the 9th graders in attendance about the NCAA eligibility requirements," he added.

Panker believes that youth athletes should attend this combine because they'll receive elite coaching from him and his staff. 

"Youth athletes should attend as they will get exposure to elite high school coaching. We have coaches that coached on nationally ranked teams this year (Gonzaga and St. John's). They will have the opportunity to showcase their skill set to other high school coaches in the area," Panker said.

"There will also be live broadcast with interviews and top players will receive a Swag Bag at the end. Again, we will also be providing valuable information about the high school admissions process and NCAA eligibility requirements," he continued.  

This combine is intended for ages 10U-14U. Youth1 will conduct Y1ACT Athletic Competency testing in five core metrics to kick off the combine:


40 yard dash

3 cone drill

Shuttle Run

Broad Jump

Vertical Jump


Power Index will be calculated for each player. Each player's scores will be added to the Youth1 Leaderboard.

After the Y1ACT, participants will then be instructed on drills and 1 on 1's to conclude the event.

"PickSixAcademy is a family environment and we train our kids as such. We have a hands on approach with every student athlete that trains with us in the off season," Panker said.

"We have assisted over 100 kids reach college on scholarships. Our kids currently play in the SEC, BIG10, MAC, IVY, AAC, ACC, etc. We take care of our own and we follow them and mentor them once they leave for school.  Several of our former players and current players will be in attendance to assist us with the individuals and one on ones!"
