WFCA/NX Level Strongman Challenge


The WFCA/NX Level Strongman Challenge has been canceled for 2020. Please keep an eye out for more information on the Challenge in the future.

WFCA/NX Level Strongman Challenge

The Wisconsin Football Coaches Association is partnering with the professionals at NX Level training to sponsor a Wisconsin Strongman Football Team Challenge on Sunday, March 8th, 2020. The event will take place at the outstanding NX Level Training Facility located in Waukesha. Check-in will begin at 9 am, with warm-ups and competition getting underway at 10 am. We expect the event to go until about 1 pm, though that may change.


High school football teams have the ability to enter a team of six athletes to participate in a Strongman obstacle course against the clock, and other teams of six. Teams can sign up multiple teams of six. Participating athletes must be current high school students, grades Freshman (Class of 2023) through Senior (2020).

Teams that cannot field a full group of six athletes will still have the ability to sign-up players individually as "free agents" and any individual sign-ups will be paired up with other individual athletes to make a team of six.

Six events will be part of the obstacle course:

  • Tire Flip
  • Yoke Walk
  • Farmer's Walk
  • Sled pull/push
  • Weight Press Medley
  • Weight Carry

Each team member will perform one event to complete the course, decided on by the team after a brief demo and explanation of each event.

Cost of the event is $240 per team of six athletes, or individual athletes may sign-up for $40. Each athlete will receive a Strongman Challenge t-shirt.

Recognitions and awards will be provided to the first, second, and third place teams with the best overall times. All awards will be presented by current NFL and former Wisconsin Badger football players including Kevin Zeitler (New York Giants), Ricky Wagner (Detroit Lions), and Rob Havenstein (Los Angeles Rams).

Refund Policy: NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED! You will have the option at checkout to purchase Registration Saver insurance through our third-party partners; this insurance will cover you if you need to cancel or withdraw from the Strongman Challenge in the event of injury that prevents you from competing or an accident en route (please note it will not cover simple withdrawals or schedule conflicts). You are not required to purchase this insurance, but if you do not, refunds will not be provided by the WFCA for any cancelations.
