Calling all Birmingham athletes in every sport. If you think you've got skills here's your chance to prove it!
The Y1ACT is coming to Birmingham, Alabama. The event will take place at D1 Sports Training on Sunday, October 29th.
The most common questions that parents, athletes, and coaches ask us revolve around evaluating athletic performance and getting noticed.
“How can I get my son exposure?”
“There are a few really good players on my team and we want to know how they stack up against the kids on the Elite101?”
“My daughter wants to play D1 lacrosse, do you have any advice on how she can get a head start?”
“Would you take a look at my son’s football highlight video and tell me if he’s got what it takes?”
Now we’ve created a solution: The Y1ACT, the first combine-like test that measures the eight core metrics that define athleticism.
The test is comprised of the following key performance metrics:
- 3-Cone Drill
- 40-Yard Dash
- Broad Jump
- Grip Strength
- Medicine Ball Throw
- Vertical Jump
These are the core metrics that evaluate overall athleticism in any sport. Based on an athlete’s performance they know not only how strong they are in certain areas, but also what to work on to improve their overall athleticism.
Identifying opportunity areas through the test will help improve:
- Future Y1ACT’s
- Tryout performance
- Game performance
- Recruiting-based Combine Testing
Athletes get a score for each drill and an overall Y1ACT score that will be calculated at the end of the test, indicating how you rate compared to similar athletes in the nation. This is the number that you want to show off.
That’s where the strength of our platform comes into play.
Athletes that take the test will receive a free 3-month Premium Profile on Youth1.com where their scores will be shown. They will see not only their overall Y1ACT score, but also their percentile against all other athletes who have taken the test.
Any athlete that needs to get noticed, get exposure, and get better needs to take the Y1ACT to see how they measure up.
We’ll be announcing dates and venues over the coming months, so stay logged onto Youth1.com and follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to see when the first test is scheduled in your area.
