Challenge Your Players – Improve Their Performance!


Agility Test


This unique event replicates many of the tests used by the very top professional academies in rugby and football.

But instead of it just being a boring battery of arbitrary tests, we’re looking Stateside to create a bit more fun and excitment for the day. We will be running it like the NFL Combine which takes place every February to sort out the wheat from the chaff in “The Draft” – the process of choosing new recruits into the NFL.

It is a massive opportunity for young sports people to compare their abilities with friends, teammates as well as other athletes from other sports and from across the pond.

This testing event will highlight where they are strong and what needs attention.

  • 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)

The event will last approximately 2hrs and there’s a lounge area, table tennis table  should parents want to stay for a while.


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 the choice of either 3 months membership to Speed Academy (value £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.

Who is it for?

Anybody playing a multi-directional field or court sport aged 11-16 who want to get an edge on the competition and see where they can improve.
