The 2013 NLL Combine took place at Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in the two days leading up to the Entry Draft from Sept. 14-15, culminating with the Prospects Game, which was broadcast live on YouTube via The Lacrosse Network. Watch the Prospects Game here along with some highlights from the Combine here.

The 52 players (12 forwards, 15 transition players, 15 defensemen and 10 goalies) who participated in the Combine were subjected to a series of tests to evaluate their endurance, reaction times, strength, agility, speed, and lacrosse-related skills. The testing was conducted by Sport Testing Inc., a provider of athlete assessment technologies and services.
