Combine Testing
Each participant will receive the following evaluations to establish a baseline of performance and physical attributes. This will help a child and family more accurately measure progress throughout the year. Results will be shown online and given to each family via email.

Power (Vertical Jump): The Vertical Jump is a test of an athlete's explosive leg power. There are two versions of the test performed... standard no step and a running max vert.

Speed (3/4 Court Spring): A timed sprint over the distance of three quarters of the court is measured in seconds. Though the acceleration of time over the first few steps is most important, maximum running speed is important in basketball.

Agility (Lane Agility Drill): Agility is very important in basketball and is measured using the lane agility test. How fast a player moves laterally around the key is determined using this test. 

Agility (Reactive Shuttle Run): Players start in the middle of the key and run to each side of the key before returning to the center.

Body Size: Measurements are taken including height with shoes on, wingspan and standing reach


Along with the combine testing/evaluations every age group will take part in a training session which will provide the proper repetitions in ball handling techniques and 1 on 1 drills.
