The #1 Official Combines in the Nation are in fact the SPARQ Combines. While you may ask yourself who is SPARQ and what is a combine the simple answers are right here at Football Northwest where we help you and your athletes find the best camps and clinics.
SPARQ: SPARQ was started in 2004 to create a standardized test for athleticism called the SPARQ Rating and to sell training equipment and methods to help improve athleticism focused on the high school athlete (an “SAT” for athletes). ‘SPARQ’ is an acronym, standing for Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction and Quickness.
Now owned by NIKE the SPARQ products have been in use for a very long time and are the gold standard when it comes to Speed Agility and Quickness training gear. There is a Network of SPARQ trainers and all the information of the drills and tests given at these SPARQ Combines right here: SPARQ INFO
There are a few official SPARQ testing events and at these events you and your athletes can find out where they stand. The SPARQ score has been around long enough now that most people know what it means. It is a great measure of an athlete’s physical skill set. Most top recruits score well on the SPARQ ratings and it helps those trying to make it see where they need to work the hardest.
On June 9th at Tigard High School there will be a FREE SPARQ Testing Event.
