Krush Performance: The Art Of Athlete Evaluation


Have you ever wondered what great players looks like? What makes them tick? What really makes them special?

Well, we wonder this all of the time and as every team works to breakdown and analyze their players and search and identify new upcoming talent, testing becomes a big part of the process but are we collecting the right data and the right information?

Are the tests we are performing at the combines, training camps and talent development programs giving us the right information? Giving us relevant information? Are teams and organizations using the data in the right way?

You may be surprised.

This week, we talk with Joel Jackson, Development Coach and Sport Conditioning Expert at the University of Alberta about his new article, “Making Sense of the NHL Fitness Testing Combine Results.”

We always talk to our athletes about the importance of making yourself special. One sure-fire way to work towards making yourself special and standing out is to take your greatest strength and mastering it. Become one of – if not THE – best at what you are good at and then build around those strengths to take you to new levels of performance.

Join us as we talk testing data in sport this week on Krush Performance.
