If you are not testing…YOU ARE GUESSING!
Serious athletes dream of success on the highest level. They hope they’re talented enough and make their best guess at what they need to work on to become good enough to move up each year.
But too often their dreams are shattered and hearts broke when reality hits and they fail to make the next level team or discover they’ve worked hard acquiring the wrong skills.
What if they could find out right now how their talent level measures up to the best in the country at their age level? What would it be worth if they could know right now what they most need to work on to have their best chance of success in the future?
Stars and Stripes Sports has invested many years creating a precision testing system and the database needed to reliably test sport-specific skills that provide answers to these questions and more. After less than an hour of activity, you can confidently compare athletes in your sport from anywhere. Benchmark testing instantly transforms talent assessment from opinion (“I think he’s pretty good”) to a fact (“Here is where he stands”). The data provides the information athletes and their support team needs to make informed decisions while considering all aspects of their athletic journey. Benchmarks allow an athlete to determine best matches for choosing a travel program, club or college.
Benchmark Testing also provides coaches, instructors, sports performance professionals and recruiters objective feedback on how their program matches up against their competition and how to best manage the development of their athletes.
In fact, testing is the best way to confidently prescribe training. Committed athletes want to know how to optimize their ability:
“What do I need to do to make my dream come true?”
“Am I on the right track?”
“How and where should I invest my precious time to give my best chance for success?”
Once you have the data it’s time to get to work! Stars and Stripes Sports has assembled a Sports Eco- System that provides special access to the best professionals from all over the country. Each athlete is unique and needs a customized regimen. Choosing coaches from our Eco-System provides athletes the need-specific, cutting-edge training and relationships needed to best leverage their natural talent.
