Gould Academy Fall Physical Testing
So at set intervals during the year, all the Gould Academy on-snow athletes (Alpine, Snowboard, Freeski) take part in an afternoon of physical testing. A series of tests in explosive speed, flexibility, endurance and stamina.
The tests include The Huskie (Illinois) – Max sit-ups (1 min) – Vertical Leap – Box Jump (40 secs jumping, 30 rest, then 30 more secs of jumping) – Sit and reach – 2 footed jump (10 for boys, 5 for girls) And finally the Beep Test.
Coaches use the test scores to track the physical standing of their team, good or bad. And to help with training plans, especially if there is a specific deficiency.
Take a look at some of the pictures from the last testing day.
