SportzMetrix and Sport Testing Inc. Announce Partnership
Avon, CT – May 25, 2016 – SportzMetrix and Sport Testing have today announced a partnership that will provide SportzMetrix athletes access to state-of-the-art skill testing systems.
Toronto-based Sport Testing is the worldwide leader in athletic testing, offering advanced technology that will now be available to the athletes pursuing skills development with SportzMetrix.
“By partnering with Sport Testing Inc., we’re leveraging technology to help athletes develop in a variety of sports,” said SportzMetrix President and Founder Ken Dixon. “We’re bringing capabilities to Connecticut and the New England marketplace that just haven’t existed here prior to today.”
The testing, which assesses both general athleticism and sport-specific skills, will enable athletes to view and compare their scores to players in the Sport Testing database who have already been tested. Professional athletes such as Connor McDavid, the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, have been tested by the company, and its technology has been used by many NHL, NLL, CHL and NCAA hockey teams.
“We are extremely excited about partnering with SportzMetrix,” said Jonathon Hollins, President of Sport Testing Inc. “Our tests highlight athletes’ strengths and weakness, thus providing them with insight into which areas of their game need improvement and helping them reach the next level. With SportzMetrix’s background in athlete development and technology, they are a perfect partner.”
In addition to Sport Testing’s comparison features, each SportzMetrix athlete will have their own personal account, which will automatically update to display their test scores following each session.
“With this partnership, we can access sophisticated hardware and software systems, protocols, and valuable data from hundreds of thousands of athletes gathered over Sport Testing’s 10 year history,” said Dixon. “Altogether, these will give athletes the feedback they need to get better.”
SportzMetrix helps athletes develop through skills assessment. Through a consistent testing protocol that produces precise and individualized data, athletes learn about their strengths and weaknesses in a quantitative way that allows them to tailor training programs and, over time, their own past results.
Sport Testing Inc. provides sport-specific, state-of-the-art athlete assessment technologies and services. The company’s highly accurate testing and data collection and analysis tools are used by the NHL, CHL, NLL, CFL, CIS and NCAA teams, Canada Basketball, amateur teams and more.
