XL Performance is a performance programme providing speed and agility training whilst specialising in American football training. We have trained the likes of NFL Superbowl Champion Will Blackmon to Premier League football player Mikael Ndjoli of Bournemouth FC. At the grassroots level, we have welcomed first time American football players who have blossomed and have received scholarships in the USA to play the sport. XL Performance also provides an environment for beginners to learn key American Football skills to excel at the next level. XL also gives an opportunity to athletes to play for fun and to gain experience in a sport that the United Kingdom has minimal opportunities for. XL also provides a specialised training regimen for cross sports training.

XL performance was created in 2019 with the hopes of providing a centre for where beginner athletes can learn the basics of American football at their own pace. XL also provides a program for players to enhance their existing skills. Here at XL we specialise in specialist training that will translate to in-game experiences. Whether you just want to improve your footwork, learn the basics of the game or separate yourself from other players... come and excel with XL


Wilson football collaborated with XL Performance in 2020 and 2021. The collaboration was to allow for XL Performance's story to be told on their Instagram page. We provided a mini series giving them an insight to the players, culture and football community in the UK. Check out @Dayonefb and @Wilsonfootball on instagram to have a look at our story.



Mikael Ndjoli Forward at Premier League Football club Bournemouth FC came down to

XL Performance for speed and agility training and never looked back! His hard work will most certainly pay off this season and in the corresponding clip you can see the type of training athletes at XL undergo.


In October 2019 we were joined by Super Bowl champion and 12 year pro Defensive back Will Blackmon. Will is a sky sports pundit and former NFL Player. Will has played for a few NFL teams, the Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Giants to name a few.  He came down to an XL session to improve his on field skills whilst giving the athletes tips on how to improve.


We hope that Will Blackmon will be the first of many NFL athletes to train with us at XL and learn something valuable from us.
