This significant event will bring together 28 top players and prospects, offering a crucial opportunity for kickers to display their abilities in front of CFL scouts and coaches.

This year’s Kicking Showcase is not just an event in isolation; it signifies the start of the 2024 CFL Combine Season. The next major event will be the CFL Invitational Combine on March 8 at the University of Waterloo’s Feridun Hamdullahpur Field House.
