Women's Football Wednesday (on Thursday again!) - AFLW Combine Standards


I did a bit of Googling for AFLW newspaper articles looking for some AFLW Combine results from the open testing from earlier this year.

These are pretty much the standards you must reach to get your foot on the door with recruiters.

- With a list of just 27, you need to durable and well-rounded, but with a "strength" specific to you (speed, endurance, skills etc)

- Durability will be huge with a short list (and already 3 ACL's!), less players on the field, harder grounds and very high temperatures, although game time is limited to 4 x 15min quarters plus time on.

 - Less players on the field means more open space which means speed will be huge and repeat speed even huger (that's a word and you know it!). Open space + speed means you'll have greater time for decision making which should translate to better skills. They found this to be the case after analysing the Bulldogs/Demons game from earlier this year.

- The clubs haven't gone all in with everyone as a lot of players are dual sport athletes at this point, with Adelaide's Anne Hatchard combining AFLW and WNBL (basketball) at the same time, limiting her footy training to 2/week which is a great move to not make players choose sports just yet

- For the 20m sprint test the best results I could fond were Daria Bannister/Hayley Breward 3.29, Calista Boyd 3.21, Georgia Baldwin 3.13, Aimee Ralph 3.23

EDIT - 2017 TAC COMBINE BEST SCORE 3.20secs.

 - For the beep test the best results I could find were Hayley Breward 11.3, Amy Halaby 11.8, Heather Anderson 14.9, Ange Foley 13.9, Courtney Stanley 12.6, Stephanie Cain 10.7

EDIT - 2017 TAC COMBINE BEST SCORE 13:01

- For the agility test the best results I could find were Daria Bannister 8.51, Bronte 8.39,  Aimee Ralph 8.94

EDIT - 2017 TAC COMBINE BEST SCORE 8.9secs (but only best I heard)

- For the vertical jump test the best results I could find were Casey Peet and Nadia Harvey 58cms running single leg jump

Now if you don't naturally possess these talents then you need to train them up and as it happens I have 20 in-person (Melbourne) and 20 online spots open to female footballers who want to make their AFL dream happen. I'm looking to kick this off in the next week or 2 so email at aussierulestraining@gmail.com or through the Facebook page if you're one of those!
