Bodyweight, Height, Wingspan, Reach

Strength – (Generating Force)
-Measure your strength relative to your bodyweight. Providing technical coaching, as well as education for ways to improve in this area.

Power – (Rate of Force Development)
-Measure your lower body power utilizing dual force plate technology (ForceDecks). Analyzed by jumping to see how quickly you can generate force, as well as identifying any left versus right leg asymmetries. This is helpful in determining if you need to spend more time training with single leg drills. As well as determine if you should spend more time on drills emphasizing strength, or on drills emphasizing power.

-Rotational Power is another component to Sport Performance measured electronically with an accelerometer-equipped medicine ball, great starting point for baseball, softball, tennis, golf, and track & field athletes.

-Are you in the 10ft club?  We will also test a max vertical jump from an approach utilizing the Vertec system.

Speed – (Your ability to accelerate and reach top speed in a straight line)
-The only true accurate measure is with a FreeLap electronic timing system.  Providing feedback/info/data on your ability to accelerate and reach top speed 0-30yd.  With educational component on sprint mechanics.

Change of Direction – (Your ability to accelerate, STOP!, and reaccelerate)
-Utilizing our FreeLap electronic timing system to show the ability to accelerate, decelerate and redirect your speed as quickly as possible.

Endurance – (Capacity to Work)
Utilizing The Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test is a test measuring an athlete's aerobic power and execution of changing direction.
