A New Pathway to the Pros Runs Through Indy in 2023
In 2023, current small college players and alums of small colleges will have their chance at the big time through Indy Eleven’s new Undrafted program.
This unique internship-style training camp will offer prospective pros a chance to get on the radar of the Indy Eleven technical staff. Trialists will earn the opportunity to showcase their talents and be evaluated as they chase the ultimate prize – a spot in Indy Eleven’s preseason training camp in 2024.
Indy Eleven’s creative team will capture this unique pathway to the pros in building an episodic series to premiere on stations and networks nationally. Episodes will begin airing in late 2023 with more information forthcoming.
Current collegiate players may participate and are encouraged to consult with their athletics compliance staff on campus prior to registering to help ensure all NCAA, School and Conference rules are reviewed and considered.
