Pre-registration is encouraged so Strike Force staff may keep player prospects updated to any changes or updates prior to the event. To RSVP, visit www.strikeforce.com/workout.
Full registration will occur on-site the day of the event including player bios and waiver forms along with a registration fee of $40 (cash only). Participants will receive a T-shirt as a part of their registration fees.
The workout will be formatted in a pro-style combine fashion with speed and agility testing as well as fieldwork. Participants will be led through a brief warm-up and stretch by Strike Force coaching staff. They will then be tested in the 40-yard dash, short shuttle, and broad jump. Once the testing portion has concluded, participants will be broken up into position categories and led through individual position drills. After position drills, skill position players will also go through a passing session including 1-on-1s.
