Every sports coach knows that the success of a training program is largely dependent upon satisfying the performance aims associated with it.
That’s why regular performance evaluation is so essential, whether you’re coaching a group of athletes or a self-coached individual. Because periodic testing and measuring is the only way to get the up-to-date, accurate and objective information you need to assess current performance, then make informed decisions about future training and competition goals.
However, before conducting a test you need to be 100% sure that it satisfies all the following criteria:
specificity (the test is designed to assess an athlete's fitness for the activity in question)
validity (it tests what it purports to test)
reliability (the test is capable of consistent repetition), and
objectivity (it can produce a consistent result irrespective of the tester).
That’s why Peak Performance have brought together all of the essential sports performance tests currently available, and published them in a handy, electronic workbook (Adobe Acrobat PDF format).
This best EVER selling workbook, 101 Performance Evaluation Tests, is the largest, most complete and authoritative collection of sports performance evaluation tests there is. And it’s an essential tool for anyone wanting to predict athletic performance or evaluate an athlete’s current level of fitness
