Description of tests To determine their present fitness levels the players must do a number of tests so they can establish what areas they need to improve on. 12 Minute run: Running or power walking in the set time would show the stamina of the player. 20 Metre shuttle run: The twenty meter distance the player runs will be timed in order to establish the speed of the player. Ruler Stretch: A pole will be held by the person shoulder width apart whilst being face down on a table and they would lift as far as they could. The height the pole is lifted to would be measured and this would determine the suppleness/flexibility of the person. Sit Ups: Muscular stamina is tested by the person doing as many sit ups as they possibly can in one minute. Illinois Agility Run: The faster the time in which the performer completes the course set around the cones would establish their agility as they would have to travel between eight cones in various directions as fast as the can. ...read more.

Conclusion

This table will help me determine whether I am on average, below or above it. This will the help me establish my strengths and weaknesses. 12 minute run (meters) 20 meter shuttle run (secs) Ruler Stretch (cm) Sit Ups Illinois Agility Run (secs) Stork Stand (secs) Throw/ Catch Ruler Drop (cm) 1700 (to nearest whole number) 5.84s 50.4cm 25 22.01s 8.5 s 53 7.6 When compared, my results show that I am below average compared to the groups' average results. This displays that I have many weaknesses. Weaknesses I have many weaknesses which mean I am not be able to play as well as some more able players. As I have so many weaknesses it is vital that I improve. Making Improvements I need to make drastic improvements so that I can actually play at a higher quality and so that I can help my team in a game. Improving would mean that I would not be a weakness of my team and this would improve play overall. This would also mean we have a greater chance of winning a game. Also improving would mean all my skills would develop to a better standard which again would mean a higher standard of play. ...read more.
