In the current climate we can't hold tryouts to assess the athletic capabilities of prospects for the 2021/22 NFL Academy student intake so, find somewhere safe and show us what you’ve got across four disciplines:






On the Barnet and Southgate College website, please upload at least one of the following four videos showing either speed, agility, power or athleticism:



  • Example: 40-yard dash: find somewhere that is safe and within your government guidelines and ideally somewhere flat, and from a standing start sprint 40 yards (or as far as is possible up to 40 yards).


  • Example: Set up a marker/cone in the middle and set one marker either side of this central one 5 yards away. Start in the middle facing forward and sprint to a marker on one side, touch it, then sprint to the far marker on the other side, before sprinting back through the middle.



  • Example: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Arms up in the air. Begin exercise by swinging your arms back behind your body as you bend your knees and push your hips back. Swing arms forward as you drive your feet into the ground, push hips forward, and explode off the ground jumping as far forward as you can. Land on your feet and drop back down into the starting position. 


  • Example: This is your chance to really show us what you can do! Share your football highlights or clips from other sports. We want to see your big plays or skills from rugby, athletics, basketball, soccer or any other sport that showcases your talent.
