20 Yard Shuttle Test

This test is part of a fitness testing protocol for the NFL, NHL and MLS Combine Testing and for the SPARQ rating for baseball, hockey, and football. It is also called the Pro Agility Shuttle or 5-10-5 Shuttle, as it involves running to 5 yards, back 10 yards, and back again 5 yards. The USA Women's Soccer Team use a very similar test the 20 yard agility shuttle, though only touching the lines with their foot. The NFL also conduct the similar but longer 60 yard shuttle test.
