FOOTBALL TESTING & TRAINING
After a proper, supervised “dynamic warm-up,” participants will have the option to test in the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump and kneeling power ball toss. NGL staff will then work participants through specific drills designed to improve athletic ability, speed and explosiveness. Here, athletes have the opportunity to tap into the secrets of proper workouts that have helped players make it to the NFL, including cone and ladder drills. This period educates participants on how to improve football-specific speed, agility and quickness movements, and also how to train specifically for the needs and requirements of their individual positions.
POSITION SPECIFIC DRILLS
Participants are separated into position groups (QBs, RBs, WRs, OLs, DLs, LBs and DBs) to work individually on football skills and techniques with league position coaches with college and NFL experience.
Each NGL Tryout concludes with one-on-one passing and linemen drills, which maybe the highlight of the workout.
