Quadrant jump test
To assess whole body agility, use the quadrant jump test.
|What is the point?
Agility is a key skill for many athletes and games players, allowing them to change direction at speed whilst maintaining control - vital for everything from tennis to rugby.
The quadrant jump test is an excellent way to measure whole body agility.
What do you need?
- Tape measure
- Chalk or tape for marking ground
|How do you do the test?
Mark out a quadrant on the floor with a starting line and numbered quadrants.
- Start with both feet together at the starting line.
- On the command 'go', jump across the line into the first quadrant, then in rapid succession into quadrants 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, etc.
- Continue with this pattern as quickly as possible for 10 seconds.
- Rest two minutes then repeat the trial
- Average your score from two, 10 second trials
Scoring: One point is awarded each time you land with both feet entirely within the correct quadrant, with a penalty of 0.5 points subtracted each time you touch a line or land with one or both feet in an incorrect quadrant.
What results you'll get :
Take the test at regular intervals throughout the training and competitive season to assess changes in agility.
