About AFLNZ Combine

The AFL New Zealand Combine Programme is underpinned by an exciting testing format that provides participants with the opportunity to compete in a number of 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 AFL fitness.

Standing Vertical Jump, Running Vertical Jump, AFL Agility, 20 metre Sprint and 20m Shuttle Run (Yo-Yo Test) are all measured at the National Combine. The National combine is monitored closely by AFL New Zealand High Performance and AFL Academy Staff ensuring testing protocols, environment and validity of results are maintained.

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

The National combine coincides with the annual ANZAC Footy Festival in April each year.
