Use of test batteries
Resources required
When designing talent I.D programmes .. generally follow same type of structure
Aims, purposes, structure and format, phases, timescales, use of test batteries and resources
Aims are what you like to have achieved at the end of it
Aims can be quite broad (increase medal tally at Olympics) or they can be specific ( develop handball players who can win medals at Olympic level
Without clear aim and purpose .. unlikely that programme will be successful
Every talent programme has clear structure and format
Generally split into different phases and stages that will be laid out in a general format
Receive applications
- stage involves the young people submitting application for the particular talent programme
Screen applications
- at this stage .. organisation looks through the applications that have been received and decides whether the athletes should be invited onto the programme
Invite applicants to trial/screening
- after the screening .. successful apllicants invited to complete general fitness testing (forms phase 1) .. above process can take between 1 - few weeks depending on volume of applications and number of people doing screening
Phase 1
- general fitness testing - involves measuring components of fitness (speed, endurance, body compisition etc)
When testing is completed .. results are analysed and people with highest fitness levels are invited back for more testing
Those in top 10-20% invited back.. and at elite level .. process can take up to 3 months depending on number of applicants
Phase 2
- sport specific testing - follows general fitness testing and can take anything up to 5 months
Differ from phase 1 because testing assesses sport specific components
Cycling Girls4Gold .. cycle based vo2 max test would be better than bleep test because it is more specific to sporting action
At elite level.. process can take up to 5 months
Phase 3
- talent confirmation - top 3-5% of applicants will be invited to this phase
Involves introducing and assessing sport specific skills and can take up to 6 months
In cycling assessment ..applicants need to learn how to genrate standing acceleration and would complete flying time trials over 100m and 200m
A test battery is a range of fitness tests that are used as part of the programme
Normal to use both general fitness tests and sport specfic fitness tests at different stages of the programme
Fitness tests will then be interpretated by comparing them to normative data to see how athlete compares to other athletes from same type of population
Consider what fitness tests to use?
Three main type of resources that you will need to consider when planning programme
Human resources
- people who will need to be involved in the process .. coaches, sport scientists, sport therapists, admin assistants
Physical resources
- relates to facilities and equipment that will be required to successfully run the programme
Fiscal resources
- refers to money required to run programme .. this will determine the quality and amount of human resources available
