A programme of ongoing testing for the assessment of any athlete is essential to optimizing training programme design, reducing injury or illness risk, increasing career longevity, and maximizing sports performance. The adage ‘you can’t manage what you can't measure' applies equally to athletes as to business. A second important function of athlete testing is to provide feedback to the athlete, which increases motivation as well as the athlete's understanding of their responses and adaptations to different training manipulations. A quality programme of athlete testing can also help build trust and respect between the strength and conditioning specialist and the other coaching staff as they come to appreciate the role and impact that strength and conditioning has in the overall athlete preparation.
