procedure: marker cones and lines are placed 25 yards apart to indicate the sprint distance. Start with a foot on one line. When instructed by the timer, the player runs to the opposite 25-yard line, touches it with their foot, turns and run back to the start. This is repeated six times without stopping (covering 300 yards total). After a rest of five minutes, the test is repeated.
scoring: Record the average of the two 300-yard shuttles.
target population: suitable for athletes involved in many multi-sprint sports such basketball, hockey, rugby, soccer.
comments: This is a maximal effort anaerobic test, and in order to receive the highest score the players must sprint at 100 percent effort the entire time. You should encourage the athletes not to pace themselves, the best score is achieved by going hard from the start.
