Skills Quest Testing Central Council 10/2/22
This weekend Central athletes attended the first of a series NYSSRA has put together focusing on the level of fitness coming into the season. The battery of tests that were given are the standard that US Ski and Snowboard has established. The tests and test protocols can be found at the USSS site under Skills Quest Fitness.
There was great turn-out from programs in Central! The awareness of how important fitness and the approach to getting stronger for many reasons was received very well by athletes and coaches attending. It was great to see coaches interacting with athletes and athletes work with coaches in a fun and developmental environment.
Fitness level has a direct effect on the ability to develop skill on snow, which ultimately has an impact on progress with technique, athleticisim, and results. The added bonus is a fitness level that helps with injury prevention.
Moving forward NYSSRA will continue adding physical testing dates late spring and fall again in 2023. NYSSRA also wants to thank the coaches that helped execute this day, with out the support of council coaches it is not possible run these events as smoothly, so coaches thank you again!
