Players from the AFL Sydney Juniors competition and talented athletes are invited to come along to AFL Combine testing sessions in January.

Participants will be tested using the latest AFL protocols and methods for skill and athletic testing (beep test, agility test, height and weight, vertical jump and 20m sprint).  Players will also be assessed on their skill level, kicking and handballing (left and right sides). Please note skill testing will be AFL specific.  Participants will receive a report of their results following the Combine.

Each Combine will be conducted over two days at two venues across Sydney.  All athletic testing will be conducted indoors to achieve consistency of results across all combines.

Representatives from the AFL Talented Player Program and Sydney Swans and GIANTS Academies will be present to assist and view players as they are tested.

Education sessions will also be conducted, these may include nutrition, stretching techniques and umpiring.

These Combines will cater for female participants.
