Fitness Tests for Referees and Umpires

Many of the tests described on this site are designed for testing the fitness of sports participants, though there are some tests targeted to specific groups. Sports referees, umpires and sports officials can be considered part of the sports, though the physical demands compared to the athletes can in some cases be greater or much less (e.g. tennis umpires). In many instances, referees need specific tests that are targeted to their particular physical demands. See also Testing Protocols for Sports Officials.
