Track & Field Fitness Testing

Here are examples that are used for the eTID program from the Australian Institute of Sport. There are many other tests that can be performed on track and field athletes: see Athletics Fitness Testing page for more ideas and a discussion of these.


These are the tests that are conducted for the athletics eTID program. These links are to our general description of the tests. For specific instructions on how to conduct the test for the program see the AIS eTID website. There are specific tests depending on the athletic discipline that you are interested in.

Source of Tests

The above tests are used for talent identification testing of Track and Field athletes in Australia. The National Talent Identification and Development (NTID) program at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) have developed an online talent identification tool (eTID). Through the eTID website individuals are able to submit results from fitness tests done at home, and if the results are up to a certain level they will invite you to be tested further and placed into a talent identification program.
