How Scoring Works in the Capital QB’s Commanders Challenge

Welcome to the Capital QB’s Commanders Challenge, where the quest to identify the top quarterback talent unfolds through a rigorous and comprehensive scoring system. Here’s everything you need to know about how points are earned in each of the ten challenging events:

Strength & Endurance

Push Up Challenge: Demonstrating upper body strength, participants earn 1 point for each push-up up to 20, 2 points per push-up for 21-30, and 3 points each beyond 30, up to a maximum of 60 push-ups.

Medicine Ball Slam Challenge: Testing explosive power, contestants receive 1 point per slam for the first 10, 2 points each for 11-20 slams, and 3 points each for any slams above 20, with a cap at 60 slams.

Plank Hold Challenge: Core strength is put to the test as participants gather points for every second they hold the plank, with the potential to earn up to 45 points for a 2-minute hold.

Speed & Agility

Short-Distance Pocket Burst Sprints: Speed is king in this sprint challenge, with the fastest times under 2 seconds earning 20 points and scaled points down to 3 seconds and over, which earns zero points.

Pro-Agility Shuttle: Agility and quick directional change are essential, with top times under 4 seconds scoring 20 points and points decreasing incrementally for times up to 5 seconds and over, which scores zero.

Precision Passing

1-Step Quick Game Challenge: Quarterbacks can secure up to 30 points by hitting targets at varying distances, with each accurate throw to the closer and farther targets scoring different point values.

3-Step Drop Game Challenge: This drill challenges QBs to execute after a 3-step drop, with similar scoring to the Quick Game and an opportunity for bonus points for a perfect series of throws.

Dynamic Throws

QB Sprint Roll Out: Mobility and accuracy are tested as QBs roll out to hit targets, with each accurate throw earning points towards a maximum of 40.

Quarterback RPO Game: Simulating game-time decision-making, quarterbacks earn points for accurate throws over a simulated ‘linebackers’ area, with a chance to score up to 40 points.

Arm Strength

Quarterback Long Throw Game: The long throw event is the ultimate test of arm strength, with distance brackets dictating the points earned, from 5 points for 10-19 yards to a maximum of 20 points for throws over 40 yards.
