These Combines will be used as part of player scouting and assessment for National team campaigns such as the Men’s Flag Football team attending the World Cup, but also as a method to drive wider awareness and participation in the sport of American Football.
The first of these public Combines is to be held on Sunday 29th September at the AUT Millennium facility on Auckland’s North Shore (an all-weather facility). There will be two sessions run on the day and both are FREE to attend:
- 1pm - Combine for Senior Men trialling for the potential Mens campaign vs a Victorian State team in 2020.
- 3pm - Public combine open to all 16+ athletes whether they currently play American Football or not.
Similar Combines are also being planned for Wellington, Christchurch and potentially Nelson. NZAFF member Regions and Clubs are encouraged to get their members to attend and to promote as widely as possible.
Information will also be on hand at these events around how to find more information on American Football Regions and Clubs.
The tests that we will be running are below, with all participants being able to access their test results after the Combine:
• Vertical Jump
• Broad Jump
• 40 yard dash
• 3 cone drill
• Short Shuttle
