SCHOLAR-ATHLETE ADVANTAGE
ALL-SPORTS COMBINE
SERIES

Individual and team combine competitions coming soon.
Competition consists of customized “sports combine testing” using Fusion Sport Laser-Timed Equipment. The same equipment used at professional sports combine events.

COMPETITION: The ALL-SPORTS COMBINE is a test of strength, speed and athletic ability as determined through a series of six out of 8 competitive athletic events depending on the level of competition:
40 yard dash
40 yard dash with tire flip and cargo net components
Pro-Agility Drill
Overhead Medicine Ball throw
Vertical Jump
ZigZag Sprint with push sled and hurdle
ZigZag Sprint without push sled and hurdle
Burpee Test (Number of Burpees in 1 minute)
Bench Press (optional for older participants and amount of weight determined by competition panel)
Number of Push Ups in 1 minute.

Scores will be tallied for each of the six events and champions will be crowned based on best overall score.

NOTE: Speed events are calculated using Fusion Sport Smartspeed Electronically Laser-timed equipment.

40-Yard Dash

The athlete will run 40 yards in a straight line as fast as possible.. Your “40” time will be measured by Fusion Sport Electronic Laser-Timing Gates.

40-Yard Dash with tire flip and cargo net crawl

The athlete will run 40 yards in a straight line as fast as possible. At the 15 yard mark, the athlete will then flip a tire 10 yards. Upon completing the tire flip, the athlete will continue the sprint to the cargo net, crawl under the net, Once the athlete finishes the crawl, he/she will sprint to the finish line. Your “40” time will be measured by Fusion Sport Electronic Laser-Timing Gates.

Pro-Agility Drill (5-10-5)

The Pro-Agility (5-10-5), is a test that measures lateral movement. The Pro-Agility Drill places two cones 10 yards apart with a third in the middle at five yards. The athlete starts at the center timing gate in a three-point stance. When the athlete is set, he/she runs five yards to an end cone/line, touches it with his/her hand, then changes direction and sprints 10 yards and touches the opposite cone/line. To finish, the athlete changes course again and dashes back past the starting point of the drill. Time will be measured by Fusion Sport Electronic Laser-Timing Gates.

Overhead Medicine Ball Throw

This test involves throwing a medicine ball (backwards) for maximum distance and measures core strength and total body power. Each athlete starts the test by standing facing away from the direction they are going to throw, with their heels at the starting line. He/she will begin the test by having the ball in both hands, held above the head, with both arms extended. While keeping the arms extended, swing the ball down between your legs while flexing the knees. Then in one motion, the ball is flung up and back over the head. (The optimal angle is 45 degrees). The athlete is permitted to fall backwards over the line after the ball is released. The distance from the starting line to where the ball first lands is recorded.

Vertical Jump

The Vertical Jump will measure an athlete’s ability to generate power with his/her legs, which is an important factor in the lower-body strength of an athlete. Keeping the feet flat on the ground, the point of the fingertips is marked or recorded. This is called the standing reach height. The athlete will then jump as high as possible. By using both arms and legs to assist in projecting the body upwards, the athlete will then jump as high as possible. The difference in the standing reach height and the jump height in “inches” is the score.

Zig Zag Sprint with push sled and obstacle hurdle

The Zig Zag Sprint with push sled and obstacle hurdle is a test of strength, speed and agility. Each athlete will sprint 10 yards and then cut in and out of 4 agility poles spaced 5 yards apart. He/she will then push a weighted sled 30 ft. From that point, he/she will continue the sprint for 10 yards and hurdle over an obstacle. He/she will then finish with a 10 yard sprint. Total distance is 60 yards. Time will be measured by Fusion Sport Electronic Laser-Timing Gates.

Zig Zag Sprint without a push sled and obstacle hurdle

The Zig Zag Sprint without push sled and obstacle hurdle is a test of speed and agility. Each athlete will sprint 10 yards and then cut in and out of 4 agility poles spaced 5 yards apart and on a 45 degree angle. He/she will then finish with a 10 yard sprint. Total distance is 40 yards. Time will be measured by Fusion Sport Electronic Laser-Timing Gates.

Burpee Test

The Burpee test is a test of strength, endurance, body control and coordination. To begin the Burpee, the athlete must stand upright with arms by the side. From the standing position, squat down and place hands on the floor in front of the feet. While putting the bodyweight on the hands, the legs are thrust back to a push-up position with a straight line from the shoulders to the heels (the chest must touch the ground at the end of the leg extension). Now pull the legs back and return to the squatting position, then back to the upright position. At the end of the Burpee, the feet must leave the ground with the hand reaching above the ears. The duration of the test will involve each athlete performing as many burpees as possible in a 1 minute time period.

SCHEDULE: The combine would be a 1 day event. Length of time is determined by number of participants.

Eligibility: Determined by type of competition such as Grade Level: Middle School (5th-6th JV), (7TH-8TH V), HIGH SCHOOL (JV-Varsity), College (Intramural-Club). Other competitions are set up based upon age levels.
Combines are for Male and Female Participants.

Type of competition: Competition will be either Individual or Team

Teams: Teams must have at least 10 Athletes. Teams are divided between male/female or Co-ed members (depending on Competition). Final Team Rosters must be submitted before the start of competition.

Attire: Shorts, team t-shirts/compression shirt, and athletic shoes.
