The Annual Invitation-Only National Competition

The Duel has become the premier National Quarterback Competition for rising star QBs.

The Duel is a 2 Day event that features both an intense development phase and an invite-only QB 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 a Quarterback must attend an NFA 3 Day OSD or 2 Day PSP QB Immersion Event and earn their invitation from a NFA Certified Coach. See our upcoming Spring and Summer Events below.

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 day competition. Recognition will be awarded to the top 5 finishers in each age group including the top prize of NFA Duel National Champion.
