The Annual Invitation-Only National Competition

The Duel is quickly becoming the premier national competition for rising star athletes. The competition will be the best ever as athletes come to showcase their skills competing against other elite athletes in their age group from all over the country and internationally.

The Duel is a 2-day event that features both an intense development phase and an invite-only position specific skills competition. The Duel scoring is derived from the NFA Skill Score System.

How to Qualify:

The Duel is open to any athletes eager to compete and display their football skills against some of the best talent at their age in the nation. To qualify an athlete must attend an NFA Off Season Development or Pre Season Prep Football Camp and earn an NFA Coach nomination,

Age Groups:

Rising 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th, 7th, 6th and 5th graders (athletes below the 5th grade may compete and will be grouped in the 5th grade group).


The Duel scoring is a cumulative total achieved through a comprehensive battery of objective assessments that measures all aspects of a Quarterback’s ability. It includes tests in decision making, speed, strength, stamina, and position specific skills. Scoring is done by age group and each player will be tested throughout the entire two days, not just on Day 1. Recognition will be awarded to the top 5 finishers in each age group including the top prize of National Champion.
