What you can measure, you can manage.
Integrated Assessment – Ages 12+
The Training Room’s integrated assessment is the first step for athletes, ages 12 and above, enrolled in our sports performance program. This thorough evaluation allows our performance team to collect and analyze information necessary to build a customized training program for each individual.
Do you ever wonder how athletic you are? Do you want to know if what you are doing is really working? Our integrated assessment is the benchmark we use to measure an athlete’s performance and evaluate improvements. Each assessment consists of three parts: anthropometric measures, a functional movement screen, and performance testing. The performance testing component consists of a series of tests that may include: vertical jump, 20 yard sprint, pro-agility shuttle, hexagon agility test and 300 yard repeat shuttles.
The functional movement screen is commonly used to assess movement (1) and to note any imbalances from left to right, or any dominant muscles groups used in movement patterns that could denote a potential for injury.
The ability to generate high levels of power is essential for sporting success (2) and vertical jump height is an indirect measure of muscular power. Therefore, vertical jump height is commonly used to measure an athlete’s lower body power (3, 4). The higher the athlete jumps, the more power they are producing.
A timed 20 yard sprint is used to measure an athlete’s linear speed and acceleration. We use state of the art laser timing to reduce the potential of human error and to keep timing consistent. The lower the time, the faster the athlete!
The pro agility shuttle is a great way to assess an athlete’s agility and ability to change directions, which are fundamental skills for success in many sports. The pro agility test is easy to administer and requires lower body strength and power necessary for the quick changes in direction inherent to ground-based sports (5). The pro-agility test is a timed 5-10-5 yard shuttle and is the same test utilized by multiple professional sports organizations. The lower the time, the more agile the athlete!
The hexagon test shows excellent reliability for measuring agility, which supports its use as a tool to assess athletic performance and lower-extremity agility (6). Athletes are instructed and timed in their ability to hop in and out of our hexagon on the floor going around each edge 3 times. The lower the time, the quicker the athlete!
A 300 yard repeat shuttle is often used to measure an athlete’s anaerobic energy system (7, 8). Each athlete runs six 25 yard sprints to determine the total amount of time it took for the two 300 yard shuttles (minus the rest). The lower the time-the more anaerobically fit the athlete is!
The Training Room’s integrated assessment is included for all athletes ages 12 and above enrolled in our performance training program. TTR Performance encourages all enrolled athletes to go through the integrated assessment at the beginning of their training cycle with repeat assessments after every 8-12 weeks of consistent training. All athletes are NOT created equal and neither should their training programs be! What you measure, you can manage! Come experience the Training Room difference!
