At Next Level Training and Testing, athletes will be testing in various ways. These tests will provide the athlete with a complete assessment of their ability. Some of the test are as follows
Overhand Throwing Speed. Used to measure the average throwing speed in baseball, softball and football.
Pitching Speed - A measurement of baseball and softball speed.
Rotational Powerball Throw - This test measures core strength and total body power. For baseball and softball players, it simulates the rotational core measurement common to the sport.
Standing Long Jump (Broad Jump) - This test measures the explosive power of the legs.
Vertical Jump - This test is designed to measure your explosive leg power.
Pro Agility Shuttle - This is a test of speed, explosion, body control and the ability to change direction (agility)
3 Cone Shuttle Drill - This is a test of agility, including speed, quickness, flexibility, change of direction, body control.
Grip Strength - The purpose of this test is to measure the maximum isometric strength of the hand and forearm muscles. Also, as a general rule, people with strong hands tend to be strong elsewhere, so this test is often used as a general test of strength.
Ball Exit Speed - This test will measure the power transferred to the baseball/softball and how fast the ball comes off the bat.
Hitting tests will be performed with the ZEPP sensor and analysis tool. This test will determine the bat speed at impact, time to impact, hand speed at impact, angle of attack and bat angle at impact.
Sprints - Straight line sprints of 10 yards, 20 yards and 30 yards for softball. Straight line sprints of 10 yards, 20 yards and 40 yards for baseball and football.
