Athlete Testing

We create tailored Athlete Testing Programs that can be used to generate statistics for athletes and coaches to quantify key abilities, vulnerabilities and limitations.

The data collected from testing GIS-supported athletes would be a vital resource for their programming. Collecting data on core athletic components such as strength, agility, and speed will allow the GIS to support the athletes with accurate, tailored programming and provide better opportunities for athletic development. This data can also be used as an outcome measure to show changes in athletes over time, between competition cycles, or following a training cycle. Additionally, the data can inform the GIS of the success of its programming and provide feedback to those providing the programming to the athletes on what is working and what may need to be adjusted.
