Fitness Testing Results
It was a great weekend of fitness testing for the approximately 100+ SOD U12, U14, U16 and SOD Team athletes at the Toronto Track and Field Centre at York University. Thank you to everyone for pre-registering and allowing for a smooth event. We tested the athletes through the 8 stations ending with the AIS shuttle run (beep test).
Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who assisted as testers or as group leaders (coaches Heather, Mel, Graeme, Kevin, Brooke, Colin, Patrick, Martin; SOD team members Matti, Wyatt, Ashley, Elizabeth, Claire; AOA Robyn, Duncan and SOD coaching staff Will, Taylor, TES as well as Jenna from Georgian College and Jane from Osler). They kept the kids moving from one station to the next to ensure everyone got tested.
Erin and Oren Smith of TOTEM Wellness Inc. spoke to the parents on Saturday about the newest Concussion (and neck) treatment and rehab, what a prehab screen is, and how to prevent injuries while having fun with dryland.
Thank you to Stefan, Christian and Nadine Overgaard from SXS Fitness who organized the testing and ensured the testers were consistent. The athletes now have an idea what their strengths and weaknesses are and can now look into further dryland opportunities through a gym or dryland camp to improve on their results before the fall testing.
