AFL New Zealand Combine Programme

The Combine Programme is underpinned by an exciting testing format that provides participants with the opportunity to compete in a number of skills and athletic testing.


Each of the events within the programme has a focus on fun and looks to provide those involved with motivation to improve themselves in varying facets of skill and fitness.

Vertical leap, Agility, 20 metre Sprint, Beep test, Clean Hands and Kicking tests are all measured at the National Combine.


The Combine Programme can also provide opportunities for New Zealand Hawks selection, AFL International Scholarships and potentially the commencement of an AFL career.

The best 35 athletes are selected from the AFL New Zealand Academy and flown to Wellington to complete testing in front of AFL talent scouts.
