TPH and Sport Testing Inc. Announce Partnership
DETROIT (Oct. 7, 2015) – Total Package Hockey and Sport Testing have today announced a partnership that will allow TPH athletes access to state of the art skill testing systems.
The Toronto-based company, which is an industry leader in sports testing, offers advanced testing technology that will be available to the more than 4,000 players who participate in TPH programs across the country.
“Advanced testing on and off the ice is growing to be an important part of a hockey player’s development,” said TPH President and Managing Partner Nathan Bowen. “Our new partnership with Sport Testing will help our players use tangible data points to improve and reach their personal goals.”
The testing, which consists of both on- and off-ice tests, will let TPH athletes view and compare their scores to players in the Sport Testing database who have already been tested.
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, CHL and NCAA hockey teams.
In addition to Sport Testing’s comparison features, each TPH player will have their own personal account, which will automatically update to display their test scores following a session.
“As this type of testing continues to become standard, it’s crucial that TPH players get access to information that will help them improve,” Bowen said. “The ability for our players to see how they stack up against not only athletes their age, but the world’s elite, is huge for their growth.”
