Athletic Revolution Champions Show Their Stuff!

Congratulations to our athletes for successfully achieving higher rank on Friday December 7th, 2012.

Testing, evaluating and assessing young athletes is and should be a continual process.  Those terms are all synonymous with each other.  One overlooked commonality they have is that they are largely misunderstood.  All to often the concept of grading young athletes is based solely on performance measures that illustrate how far, how far, how fast and how much.  A key problem with this connotation is it lacks a the emphasis  on the very skills required to perform any movement or exercise.

The Athletic Revolution Testing and Promotion System is based on 9 levels of achievement based on skill aptitude, character and fitness level.

 

We are proud to announce the  24 Champions that qualified and successfully achieved a new level.

Youth Fitness Testing and Assessment [Video]

Testing and assessing young athletes should not begin with adjusted 1 rep max or 3 rep max in the squat and or bench press. Collecting data on a young athlete who is beginning an athletic development program should not be be based on how many push ups, sit ups and pull ups they can perform or how fast they can run.

Rating technical ability of a variety of movements where each young athlete’s skill level can be evaluated with a progression based on developmentally appropriate goals is optimal.

This video is a small example of an emotional and awe inspiring performance of young champions ranging in ability level and age. Testing and Promotion Day at Athletic Revolution is a celebration, a display of athleticism and a community event.
