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 anaerobic test, and in order to receive the highest score the players must sprint at 100 percent effort the entire time. Encourage the athletes not to pace themselves.
