US CYBER OPEN CTF Registration and COMBINE Applications CLOSE:  July 7, 2022.

The goal of the US Cyber Open is to attract all levels of athletes so that coaches can easily scout top talent and invite them to the Combine where they will participate in an immersive, game-driven experience and meet fellow cyber athletes.

All athletes completing the CTF challenge will receive a digital badge that can be used on social profiles and resumes.

Top scorers will win prizes such as a $350 gift certificate to Hacker Warehouse, a cool HyperX Gaming Chair, Beats Studio3 Headphones, and more.

The top athletes (based on CTF scores AND applications) will be invited to continue in the US Cyber Combine Invitational. Scores alone won't confirm an invite to the US Cyber Combine--your application matters most.

Top 120 Invited to US Cyber Combine

August 5–September 5, 2022

This Combine Invitational is similar to a sports Combine in which the athletes will undergo a cyber aptitude evaluation, interview with multiple coaches, train weekly in cybersecurity skills via games, and compete in an advanced CTF to build their portfolio for the US Cyber Team Draft. At this level of competition, we’re separating the GOAT (greatest of all time) from the good. We’ll put athletes through the same tests and trials top companies and the government use in their hiring process.

Read more/less

This Combine is designed to test you, but also to provide the top athletes a unique experience to hear from leading experts in their field. The selected coaching staff will use this time to get to know each athlete to understand their skills and competencies.

Each week, the coaches will provide virtual instruction and challenges to help strengthen your skills. We expect athletes to contribute 4-8 hours of practice each week. In return, we are seeking training partners to provide benefits such as vouchers for certifications along the way.

Additionally, athletes that perform well during the combine will have the opportunity to accumulate digital badges for performance and skills.

INVITATIONS will be sent at the end of July via email.
