As part of our Sports Medicine Program with our partner Olympic Sports & Spine Rehabilitation we strongly recommend your daughter participate in the video analysis portion of this program.  Please make sure she is dressed according to the guidelines below. This is your only scheduled testing date and there will be no make up testing dates. If you absolutely cannot be there please contact your coach and see if your daughter will be able to be tested at a different time. Please know that we will try to accommodate you, but cannot guarantee that your daughter will be tested at all if she cannot attend during this scheduled testing time.

Paperwork: There will be a sign in sheet to log in all the players and two forms everyone testing will need to complete. One is a release of liability and the other is a release for us to video them and use email or the web to distribute protected health information. The medical profession has obligations to protect any health information such as this test.

Dress Code: Players shoul dress as if they were playing in a game, spandex and a form fitting top for our measurements, and volleyball shoes. We cannot allow anyone to test without good shoes. Anyone with Nike Free Runs or similar flexible shoes will be at risk of rolling their ankles during the drills we run for the test. We’ve never had anyone hurt themselves during the test, however proper footwear is a must.

What to Expect: Each team will perform a series of 6 sports maneuvers (step down, drop jump, lateral shuffle, deceleration, triple hop, cutting) that will be recorded on a motion capture system.  Each athlete will perform the step down, then we will move on to the drop jump, then the next, etc… until we are all done as a group.  The athletes can get dressed and relax/visit with their teammates for 10 -15 min while the tests are all scored, then the test results will be reviewed immediately with the players, coaches and parents.

Results: The results will be reviewed with the players, coaches and parents as a group following each team’s completion of the test.  It will take about 15 minutes to score all the tests, then we will go player by player to identify what each athlete needs to work on. Rest assured, no matter what the results, everyone can improve their risk assessment by working hard during strength and conditioning training. We will be collaborating with the PJVBC trainers to incorporate appropriate exercises into our conditioning, strength training and jump training.

Sports Testing and Risk Reduction Training

Cutting-edge analysis of each player will be performed on each PJVBC Player. The test includes 6 sports maneuvers and players will receive a printed report with pictures of key findings, a score system, and recommendations specific to the athlete.

  • Female Athletes are 4-6 times more likely to sustain an ACL injury.
  • 1-4 Athletes returning to sports after an ACL injury will have a second ACL injury.
  • The difference between high and low risk is a matter of degrees and these differences are often present as early as 9-10 years old.
  • Athletes that jump, land, pivot and cut with poor biomechanics are at risk.
