I thought the whole point of the beep test was you have to wait until the beep to start the next level.Done this 400m track beep test where you keep running around the track, you don't have to wait until the beep. You go at your own pace, you're out when you can't keep up with the beep.

which is why it's called the beep "test" and not the "running builder method" loli saw a VFL club do the beep test in 2005 i think it was, no idea what team it was but they seemed to be timing their walks/jogs/runs so they only had enough time to turn around before the beep went.
I think most in their teens would have decent natural speed as well as speed-endurance. Distance fitness is much more varied, some are quite fit and others are pretty average(though generally still quite fit compared to your average person). I used to train sometimes with dan hannebery when we were 15-16-17, he'd come and train with our athletics group to improve his fitness for footy. Over distances like 400m-800m he was competitive with us (us being track athletes) whereas stretching out to 1500m-3km he'd fall behind a bit. I'm pretty sure he ran just under 2 minutes for 800m when he was training with us at around 16-17yr old. He did train hard with us(on top of his footy training), and he ended up doing very well in all the fitness tests as a result.I'm 14 and I did the beep test last month and managed to reach 12.1, which is a PB, I'm actually wondering how fit AFL players were when they were teens and how much do I need to improve to reach 14.1 which is the AFL minimum.
