Athlete Performance Testing
Hopefully this module has introduced you to some of the common tests used at Rise, and the importance of test validity and reliability when inferring meaning from test results. As has been discussed, ensure that you're familiar with most of the tests listed in this module, and make sure you're an expert on the tests that you'll be running with your cohort of athletes. Simply talk to your supervisor/senior intern and ask what resources should be consulted or how the tests will be ran!
As a general summary of this module:
"Shit data leads to shit decisions"
- Leroy, 2021
Make sure when you're completing athlete performance testing that you're as rigorous as possible at setting up the tests and coaching the athletes, and have a good grasp on the reliability and validity when drawing meaning from tests!
