Would your season benefit from a boost of intensity?
The NFL Combine takes place every February to showcase all the up and coming talent in American Football.
So, on 31st January, I’m organising The Speed Academy Combine in Horsforth!
Open to young athletes from all sports, it will be a series of sports specific tests to see who’s got it and who hasn’t.
SPEED – 10m Sprint (electronically timed – the only way this can be timed)
AGILITY – Illinois Agility Test (again, electronically timed)
POWER – Standing Long Jump (reliable measure of explosiveness)
STRENGTH – Pull Up, Press Up and 1 Leg Squat (very reliable tests of strength to weight)
ENDURANCE – Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test (more sport specific than the bleep test)
Train hard for each event and reinvigorate your season!
SUNDAY 31ST JAN 2:30PM
It is a massive opportunity for young sports people to work hard on certain universal sports skills and pit their abilities with friends, teammates and athletes from other sports.
This testing event will highlight where they are strong and what needs attention.
Each test has a scoring structure, a bit like the decathlon in athletics. The athlete with the highest total in the 2 age categories (11-13 and 14-16) will receive 1 term FREE membership to Speed Academy (value up to £175) or a half day Speed Camp for their team (value up to £300).
There will also be on the spot prizes of training apparel for outstanding individual performances.
There are no losers.
If you find that your athleticism is holding you back, then you’re in the right place. That’s what we do!
