The Beep Test is Dead...Finally


If you didn't get across this earlier in the week then the AFL have scrapped the Beep Test from all combine events with endurance now being assessed by a 2km time trial as well as the Yo-Yo Intermittent Test.

This is a huge news because it's no secret that the beep test is nothing specific to anything but the beep test but with the AFL having collected a ridiculous amount of data on it over the years looked like it was here to stay, despite how non-specific it is.

I applaud the AFL on this one as they are basically throwing away years of data to implement this new testing procedure but if they can change the game rules every week, then surely they can do this without losing anything.

What's different about the Yo-Yo Test?

It uses a very short rest after each run, better replicating actual team sports.

Similar to the beep test you need to cover the length of each run before a beep and also like the beep test, they get faster and faster s you go.

There's actually 2 versions of this test but I will assume that most local/amateur clubs when using this will opt for the level 1 version.

Level 2 starts at a higher speed and this is probably for more advanced teams but if you wanted to you could have your elite runners use level 2 for time efficiency reasons.

Less fit players could use level 1 and progress to level 2 once they hit a good to elite level at level 1.

The norms for level 1 are:

Elite x 20.0 (2400m) for males and 17.5 (1600m) for females

Excellent x 18.7 - 20.0 for males and 16.5 - 17.5 for females

Good x 17.3 - 18.7 for males and 15.6 - 16.5 for females

Average x 15.6 - 17.3 for males and 14.6 - 15.6 for females

Below Average x 14.2 - 15.6 for males and 13.1 - 14.6 for females

 Here's a quick video of how it looks all mapped out:
