Many scientific sport assessment resources are difficult to understand, can be time consuming to implement, and provide data that are difficult to analyze. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance effectively solves those problems in this practical, user-friendly guide to performance-based evaluation.

A perfect resource for coaches and fitness professionals, Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance is a streamlined guide through the process of identifying appropriate tests for individuals or teams, making use of common low-cost equipment to administer the tests, interpreting data, adjusting training programs based on the results, and continually monitoring training.

For each assessment, this text walks you through a step-by-step process and includes a script of directions to give the athlete or client being tested to ensure the tests are performed correctly. You’ll find a variety of protocols that do not require complicated equipment and can be conveniently conducted in your normal training environment. You’ll be able to assess your athletes or clients in the following areas:

• Anthropometrics and body composition

• Flexibility and balance

• Agility and sprinting

• Power

• Muscular strength and endurance

• Cardiorespiratory fitness

In addition, each assessment is accompanied by normative data to set baseline evaluations and to monitor progress over time. As a refreshing break from the typical complex tables, the normative data are displayed in modern, simplified figures that make it easy to quickly evaluate test results.

Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance takes the guesswork out of determining which tests to administer and what equipment is needed. It will equip you with the tools needed to help your athletes and clients achieve even greater success.

Earn continuing education credits/units! A continuing education exam that uses this book is also available. It may be purchased separately or as part of a package that includes both the book and exam.
