A key part to any good training program is to know the current status of
an athlete with regards to their strengths and weaknesses. How fast is the
athlete now! How agile is the athlete! What is their reaction time like? Are
they fast only over a short distance or do they possess speed-endurance! Does
the lack of good flexibility inhibit their ability to become faster? The only
way to answer these questions is to perform some pre-season testing. Many
coaches perform some form of pre-season testing yet many do not know which tests
to choose and which are specific to the fitness component that they are trying
to test. Choose tests that are specific to the movements in your sport. This
requires performing a needs analysis and understanding the exact requirements
for your sport. Benefits of Testing Include: Identifying the current status of
the athlete with regards to speed. It gives you an idea of where you stand in
comparison to fellow athletes in your sport. When you conduct testing it will
allow the athlete to see where they stand in relation to other athletes. They
can also use these tests to motivate them in training to improve and strive to
beat their test score the next time testing comes around. Testing helps you to
set goals for yourself. You may not be as fast as your opponent but you can
certainly decrease the difference gap. Speed is recognised as one of the most
important factors for success when training athletes. Once you know your current
speed status then you can set goals for yourself on what times you will aim to
get. Testing also allows you to see if you are fast in certain areas but not in
others. Eg. Do you have linear speed but are slow when it comes to speed with
multi-directional changes? Are you fast once you get going but lose time due to
being slow off the mark? As already mentioned there are many often neglected
factors that determine how fast an athlete is. Testing gives you specific times
and results for a test that are measurable and allows you to set goals for
improving on theses times. When you beat a previous time for a certain test then
you know that you have become a faster athlete. Tests for Speed include the
sprint test over 10 metres, sprint test over 20 metres, fan drill (used for the
ITN Test), suicide sprints (speed - endurance Philadelphia Eagles Rush

, wave run speed and agility test and the 3 line speed and
agility test. Tests for Agility include the agility box run test, 5 ball
pick-up, 4 cone sprint, "T" agility test and the bowtie drill. Tests for

, hamstring flexibility. Testing guidelines
include testing prior to commencing your training program and conducting a
thorough warm-up before you begin testing. When testing you have to duplicate
the exact testing procedures and variables in order to obtain valid and reliable
results. You should also avoid excessive physical activity the day before
testing. Perform the test at the same time of the day, perform the tests on the
same surface and try to perform the test under similar weather conditions. Other
key points include performing the explosive tests first during a training or
testing session. Be sure to clearly instruct the athletes on how to perform the
test and allow for a trial run through of the test thus allowing for the
"learning" factor associated with a new test. Tests should be simple and easy to
administer. Perform tests in the same order when re-testing. Have the athletes
wear the same shoes and clothing. Test every 6 - 8 weeks. There is no need to
test every month or few weeks and in fact this can be counter productive. You
must allow enough time for the adaptational effects of your training to occur.
These tests should not be too time-consuming to set up and perform. There are
many tests that you can perform that do not require special equipment. Most of
these tests are not costly or difficult to set up. Testing is a great way to
monitor your training program and to see what changes need to occur in order to
be more productive. With any good speed testing program it is very important
that you perform tests specific to your sport. In tennis speed occurs over very
short distances. In other sports such as American Football you would test speed
for wide receivers over 40 yards. This is where the needs analysis that you have
conducted for your .
