GPT innovate and AFL make changes to performance testing

10 Jun 2017 5:19 AM | Graham Dudley (Administrator)


Global Performance Testing continue to be a leader in professional testing in both sports and wellness and it has been an encouraging week in Australia with the announcement of change by the Australian Football League (AFL) in their fitness and draft testing protocols (read article).

"Beep test makes way for the yo-yo at AFL draft combine" was the headline in The Age this week (read article) as the 3km time-trial and beep test are removed from the combine line up for more sport specific testing on athletes.

GPT Australia have been testing AFL and all other sporting codes with the Yo-Yo test since 2012 and have a significant base of data from year 7 to 12 school students, academy players and sub-elite athletes all within the reliable and controlled conditions of GPTQA plus five years experience on managing the validity of test conditions including inter-trial, intra-trial, inter-tester and intra-tester reliability for consistency.

Our research and development since 2012 internationally has also focused on other key sporting codes such as NRL, Soccer, NFL, Basketball and Netball plus more recent research in all sporting codes to identify weakness for development by sport specificity in test protocols.

Global Performance Testing is the ONLY truly international performance testing service provider that is 100% unbiased across all sporting codes for all abilities with leading quality assurance, experienced and trained staff plus professionally accredited protocols and procedures for guaranteed reliable data.
