Verification and Testing

Masters of Sports has provided a complete verification and testing physicality and flexibility form for use with the annual plan. It is included in the VERIFICATION MANUAL.

Besides the obvious required skill dictated movement patterns per level, proper and equal flexibility within each athlete will help prevent injury due to lack of range of motion.

Standardize testing occurs throughout the year by using the Physical Abilities Test (PAT) norms. Avoid using ‘eye-ball’ testing. Best if the same tester is used for each flexibility test to provide a proper standard. Areas to be tested: L/R/C Split—Shoulders—Hamstring—Hip Flexor—Achilles.

All athletes should be reviewed in ‘movement systems’ patterns. The basic movement tests are performed to identify weakness between front and back, left and right parts of the body. 

Irregularities or pain in movement will signify a special program should be developed for that athlete to correct the irregularity. Both strength and movement patterns can be affected.

Use Flexibility Verification within the Physical Abilities Test (PAT). Exercises and forms are included.

Specific dates are set for Flexibility Verification, however, the coach(es) need to use their discretion in adding other timeframes to test athletes flexibility. This can be performed as a team or just to an individual.
