Skill Testing

Although fitness is very important for many sports, it is skill that really defines how good someone is at their sport. Usually skill elements are removed from fitness tests in an attempt to measure just the fitness component, though this is sometimes a difficult task. In many sport specific fitness tests, there is some element of skill or technique to make the test more relevant to the sport, so the assessment is a combination of skill, technique and fitness.
