100-Yard Shuttle Test (10 x 10 yards)

The 100-yard shuttle test is a test of speed, agility and anaerobic capacity. The test requires participants to run back and forth over a 10 yard area. The test originally used bank boards or walls at each 10 yard mark to assist in making the 180 degree turns. This is not always easy to set up, so using a line or marker to make the turn is more commonly used.

purpose: this is a test of speed, agility and anaerobic capacity

equipment required: stopwatch, measuring tape, marker cones, a flat grass surface.

pre-test: Explain the test procedures to the subject. Perform screening of health risks and obtain informed consent. Prepare forms and record basic information such as age, height, body weight, gender, test conditions. Measure and mark out the test area. Perform an appropriate warm-up. See more details of pre-test procedures.

procedure: marker cones and lines are placed 10 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 10-yard line, touches it with their foot, turns and run back to the start. This is repeated five times without stopping (covering 100 yards total).

turning around the coneAgility Test: turning around the cone

scoring: Record the total time to complete the test.

target population: suitable for athletes involved in many multi-sprint sports such as 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 flat out from the start.
