Athlete ID Testing

Athlete ID Physical Testing

The Athlete Identification Process is used to select athletes for the provincial Team Ontario indoor and beach programs. As part of the Athlete Identification application, athletes will also have to complete physical testing at Ontario Championships. For more information about the process, deadlines and application please visit the Team Ontario Athlete ID page.

Physical Testing Stations:

  • Height: 
    • With the athlete’s shoes off, heels, upper back and back of head flat against a wall, a flat object will be used to mark the top of the athlete’s head on the wall. The mark will be measured from the floor to determine the athlete’s height.
  • One-Hand Reach: 
    • A measurement of the athlete’s vertical reach with one hand, measured by the middle fingers.
    • With the athlete’s shoes on, they will stand perpendicular to the wall and reach as high as possible with their dominant hand. The spot where the middle finger can reach and maintain contact will be marked and measured for the athlete’s one hand reach.
  • Spike Touch: 
    • A measurement of the maximum spike height of an athlete with a full spike approach.
    • The athlete will position themselves at the desired distance from the vertec device and complete a full spike approach while touching the highest possible point on the vertec device. The athlete will then be given feedback as to where to position their start in order to achieve maximum height.
    • Jumps are performance until three consecutive attempts are missed within 15-20 seconds rest between each jump. The highest point touched will be recorded.
  • Attack Velocity: 
    • A measurement of an athlete’s spike velocity.
    • Athletes will be performing a standing attack and hit to a target. Pocket radar technology will be used to measure attack velocity.
