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.
